Celtic Fans Are Right To Be Aghast At Sky Sport’s Jota Segment … Featuring Kris Boyd.

You think you’ve seen it all, folks, and then you watch Sky Sports News today. After waiting for several hours to see what they would say about the signing of Jota we finally got a segment on the signing.

Except that it wasn’t.

What we got was Kris Boyd.

In the segment of the show devoted to Celtic spending £6 million plus on one of the most exciting players Scottish football has seen in years, we got that grinning, gurning eejit showing off his full lack of skills by stuttering and stammering and falling over his words as he discussed Ibrox’s failure to get signings done.

We got a minute at the end. The whole piece was just a waste of our time, as amusing as it was seeing Boyd try to speak intelligently. He conceded that Ibrox needs money before it can spend anything serious; that was the highlight of it.

It is a disgrace that Sky can turn a segment on us into one on them, even if it’s to highlight the yawning gap between the business we’ve done and the complete lack of movement over there.

Boyd was allowed to put up a pitiful defence of their board and their “strategy” before they even got to congratulating us over an outstanding signing.

This is typical of the broadcaster. It is typical of the way they view Scottish football.

They, like the BBC, have dumbed down by hiring the sort of people who wouldn’t get a gig on a blog. Is he really the only person up here they could have found to talk about how our club has gone out and paid big money for a top footballer?

I watched that aghast today. I am sure I wasn’t alone.

It was that station at its absolute worst, and although I’ve more to say about Boyd’s comments in another piece it was dreadful that Sky, through him, devoted time that should have been ours to them.

Regardless, this is a big, big day for our club … and nothing Sky or anyone else do will make a less significant one.

They owed the Celtic fans in their audience more than just that gormless face and his attempt at insight. They owed us more than an afterthought to their Ibrox transfer window inquest.

    James it was never in any doubt about jota signing all these clowns going on about it not happening for us was just pure jealousy, what will be their next load of pish.

  • Martin H. says:

    They keep trying to compare Jota to kent, Jota has scored half the number of goals in 1 season, kent has scored in 4.

  • Tony B says:

    Sky is owned by a fascist and its customer base is fascist/tory/brexit supporters primarily.

    In Scotland that means huns and that’s who all their input is aimed at.

    it’s a no brainer and consequently they hire people with no brains to represent and talk to people with no brains, ie huns.

    Simples! Or should that be simpletons?

  • Bjm says:

    Simple answer! Do not pay sky monthly subscriptions. There are other ways to watch Celtic live if you look into it.
    Absolute scum of a company

  • cheezydee says:

    I don’t always buy in to all your gripes and moans but I detest Boyd and I’m amazed he gets a gig anywhere. He must have some dirt or connection somewhere. It’s shocking that sky have done that, but folk should just boycott it until they change.

    we all know that boyd is a bitter hun bigot and should be no where near being an “impartial” pundit. yes he did play football ( of sorts ), but he has very little football knowledge.

    we also know that sky is part of the problem, part of the establishment.

    fck them

  • Thomas Daly says:

    Fat gumsy boydy at it again,wonder what he has to say about 2012s finances or lack of it go fatboy

  • SSMPM says:

    Surprised that you say you weren’t alone in being aghast, any decent minded Celt stopped paying their subs, a long time ago to SLY, a rankers supporting channel. So really that’s exactly what you should have been. Alone

  • JimBhoy says:

    I could only stomach the first few minutes. Sevco policy not to purchase players early as it puts them on the wage bill pre-season was a classic. Great Business model.

    Sevco and their fans cannot wait to sell players, it is weird but we know it’s a competition with Celtic who have made vast profits on the selling market over the years.

    Celtic dont have to punt players in deperation and we don’t have to inflate packages to appease fans with jillions in add-ons.

    Sky are a joke. CL this season will be on Prime it seems so some respite.

    Maloney, McFadden, Petrov, Hartson, Sutton, Stewart are all good pundits.

    I think sevco will sell some players but buyers will feel their desperation and leave it late to pay less. Aribo and Kent I think will go.

    Wee Baz suggesting Sevco can bring in £55m is fantasy football money.

    Can’t wait for the season to start.

  • Duncan says:

    Seems to me most blogs are filled with people who either couldn’t play the game at the level most of the pundits were at and are secretly or overtly displaying unbelievably high levels of resentment at the fact the fact they are well paid and are still making a killing from the game?
    Or are alternatively spaces for self righteous types with narcissistic tendencies who want to show the world just how clever they are by highlighting others faults.

    Repeatedly and incessantly.

  • Edward Murison says:
