The Media Has Failed In A Pitiful Attempt To Turn Celtic Fans Against Our New Coach.

Every single day the media finds a new low point, and yesterday one paper – and I can’t even be bothered to name the rag in question because most of you already know which one it was, it’s the one it always is these days – decided to dig up an eons old video of Harry Kewell saying the word “Rangers” when asked to name his Scottish club.

He was then baited into some kind of additional pronouncement, something about “no surrender Ibrox loyal”, random words which some idiotic fan suggested for him.

This thing is ancient, and the paper has made no effort even to identify the timeframe.

But they made sure that it got plenty of coverage, by sticking the thing online and giving it a big push.

This article is so bad that nobody even wanted to put their name on it; it carries the cowardly tag “Daily Record Online Reporter” although the last word is being grotesquely misused there in my opinion because this is muck-raking not reporting.

No-one online gives a shit about this story.

No Celtic fan gives a damn.

Why should we?

Even if Kewell, at the time, was not just a player with no connection to Scotland who gave the answer to a question that he thought his audience wanted to hear, even if he were, in fact, an Ibrox diehard fan there is not a one of us who would lose a wink of sleep over it.

We care about two things; can this guy do a job, and will he do it well for us?

And the answer to both is “trust Ange” cause he picked this guy himself.

Kewell is a Celtic employee and that’s where the story ends.

We’ve had players who were Rangers fans growing up. That did not stop them becoming outstanding servants to this club, and our attitude towards the stuff has always been the same “who cares?” shrug.

The Record was looking for some sign that our fans might be as narrow minded and as stupid as the ones across the city, and they did not get it. But failure doesn’t exempt them for criticism – scathing criticism – for the attempt, and the attempt is disgusting.

This is the level these people operate at.

Shame on them for trying to create divisions and hatred where none exist.

At the end of the day that’s what they attempted here.

Celtic Fans Are Special. These Are Some Of The Reasons Why.

    Absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing surprises me any more regarding the Daily Record and it’s sports copy! Their reporters have to stand on a ladder to reach up to touch the bottom as far as I’m concerned. An organisation who had no conscience about raising its price for a dai!y paper during a Pandemic. Scotland’s Champion!!

    Do what the majority have done for years, simply don’t buy the rag.

    Ex Celt, Park joins The Rangers, new CELTIC coach is ex Rangers fan. My life is over, I canny stand the Sevco lot beating us at every turn. Let’s concede the Close Season Cup now, and spare us anymore angst.

  • Johnny Green says:

    I suppose when you are pumping feelgood pish into toilet lickers you have to be as creatively twisted as possible in order for THEM to lap it up,

    It is our reaction that defines us and thankfully for us it’s like water off a ducks back. We don’t bite and we don’t really care, so go fk yourselves DR.

    Same paper pulled same trick 20 odd years back when actor Robert Duvall was duped into holding a scarf above his head that said Ulster says No,or something of that ilk.The idea that Robert Duvall ,an American of French extraction actually gave a shit about any of that stuff was off the scale cringy.Didnt stop them pushing it though

      Utterly sly, desperate, sewer rat ‘reporting’. They try and make out its a bit of ‘fun’, but know exactly what they’re doing. That pro sevco bogroll of a tabloid and its excuses for ‘journalists’, its always the same. Their media get away with printing their tripe because up here,? they go unchallenged by any other newspaper. If they tried it say, in England, they’d get their arses handed to them on a plate — fact ! And they know it.

  • Roonsa says:

    The level of journalism in Scotland, not only sports journalism but mostly, is Daily Star made up nonsnse read by utter morons level. I know a fair few fans of the Ibrox club and not one of them pays it any attention either. I also know a number of fans of English teams and the journalism they moan about being on the wrong end of is stuff we’d be jealous of.

    If we cared.

    Which we don’t.

    • Kevan McKeown says:

      its not just this pathetic article.The sheer hype and crackpot statements these clowns are capable of regarding their ibrox favourites, in just about every area is embarrassing. But it can be dangerous as well. To be honest, its hard to tell whether its clickbait, or these ‘reporters’ and their gullible supporters (granted not ALL of them) actually believe it. Personally I believe its the latter, or both. Its only because of blogs like this their yearly crap gets put under scrutiny. In any other country where the media has a far varied approach, their tripe and mostly ridiculous ‘views’ would be challenged and taken apart, not in Scotland’s media circles tho and that’s a pity. Anyway, as you say, who cares !? No me ! (?)

    Sad wee club that’s only been going for a few year after liquidation, if they don’t know the meaning of this word, they can always ask LORD HODGE.

  • SSMPM says:

    Just fat words from over indulgent fantasy club fans. That club is now deid. Glasgow Rangers FC are deid. In their greatest act of self harm, a self inflicted attack on their kulture killed their club and their fans refused to put their hands in their fat trousers to help save them. Action speaks louder than words. Rangers fans did not love their club.
    If you don’t pay your taxes to your queen you get liquidated. It highlights two things – their actions show no respect for their queen and they didn’t really support Rangers at all and let them die. Rangers are deid
