Remember when they were calling us a one-man team earlier in the season?
It was being used as a stick to beat us with.
We had assembled an expensive squad but it all comes down to one player, and if something happened to him we were done.
Now the same people are using Morelos’ injury and the news that his season is over to offer an alibi to the club from Ibrox. Amazing how they can take the same story, and the same point, but spin it in two entirely different ways.
For the record, and as the record shows, we weren’t a one-man team at all.
We have powered to our six-point lead largely without that one man – Kyogo Furuhashi.
We have had a load of other injuries along the way. But it suited the press to make that argument when they were trying to pile pressure on our shoulders.
Now they are using it to remove pressure from theirs.
This will be the reason when we beat them in the Scottish Cup.
It will be used as the excuse when they don’t win the Europa League.
Their trophyless season will be blamed on an injury to Morelos at “the business end of the campaign.”
This garbage was being trotted out by Scotland’s worst mainstream journalist, Joel Sked, today in an article which admitted that Morelos has barely made an impact on the season.
But apparently the Celtic defence would have struggled to cope with him.
This wholly contradictory argument sums up the stupidity of these Peepul.
Isn’t Kemar Roofe on some mega-bucks contract? Are we really to believe that he’s a waste of space? Isn’t Sakala supposed to be some kind of superstar footballer? Are we now meant to believe that he’s not worth a damn?
Funny that none of this was being reported when they were boasting about how they could put out three different teams “to compete on all fronts” isn’t it?
You’d almost think that those stories were a load of old bollocks and that all involved knew it.
Roofe has been a waste of money. Sakala hasn’t done much to suggest that he isn’t.
But then, Fred The Ned isn’t that great a player either.
We are six clear. They were dropping points with this guy in the team and that’s one of the reasons why we are.
If they are really arguing that their season has collapsed simply because he’s not in the team then their team is a weak as we’ve been saying it is … which flies in the face of their own nonsense about having a better squad of players.
On top of that, he’s now almost certainly played his last game for their club. How will they cope next season when he’s not available at all?
It’s almost as if they make this stuff up as they go along.
