The Transfer Lie That Won’t Die took a funny new turn yesterday when The Daily Record published a dire piece suggesting that Celtic have a readymade “alternative” to Juranovic already on our radar.
The writer of this awful piece was the notorious Mark Pirie, one of the worst writers in the whole country.
He is a joke, and this latest article is a joke.
The Juranovic story ought to be interred in a shallow, unmarked grave.
It’s dead. There’s nothing to it and there never was.
The basic foundation of it – the Romano tweet – has been demolished entirely. Nobody at Celtic “expects” him to leave this summer. Neither the player nor his agents “expect” him to leave.
The Atletico Madrid story has likewise collapsed.
Still, The Record tries to push this. Their “suggestion” that we target Yan Couto – who was linked with us last season before we signed Juranovic – is both lazy and unappreciated.
Nobody inside Celtic is going to be dropping Pirie a “thank you” letter for it.
The thing is, I am sure that we already have contingencies for all manner of events and eventualities. There’s little doubt that we’ve thought through the possibility that Juranovic will have his head turned by all this speculation; that is the point of it, after all.
And I have no doubt that we’ll already have our list of options … and I doubt that a guy who had the chance to come last year and opted for something else would be on that list, if that’s what really happened with Couto.
Juranovic isn’t going anywhere of course.
That’s the truth of it, and that truth has been blasted out all over the newswires in spite of those who want to keep this story going.
The likes of Anthony Joseph have gotten to the heart of it by talking to the people at the centre of the story.
People at Celtic. People connected to the player.
The Record’s insistence on pushing this when the issue is dead is a statement about how piss-poor the journalism over there is. That they think Celtic needs advice on who we should go for if, by some chance, this story grows actual legs … that’s just insulting.
