The Mooch’s Refusal To Use Celtic’s Name Is The Act Of A Small Man Playing To The Gallery.

The Mooch is definitely “one of their own” alright.

Small minded, obsessed with chickenshit details, backstabbing, nasty and without a scruple. They have the right man at the helm alright, even if he’s not going to prove to be the right manager. He and they are a perfect fit.

It’s not often that someone can walk into that place and inspire instant aversion; usually somebody has to be there a while before the place overcomes whatever better nature they slid in there with. But not with this guy. The manner of his getting the job, combined with his smarmy and highhanded attitude have made him immediately dislikeable.

What was that about today, that little stunt he pulled, where he called the champions of Scotland, a club whose manager has shown the utmost respect for every other club in the land “the other team”? What except the small-minded act of a petty man who has the Ibrox job now but feels he has to play to the gallery of goons before he’s taken a single game?

The media is reporting on this. That’s how out of the ordinary it is. That’s how big a breach of protocol it is for one manager to refer to the club who are his direct rivals in such a manner. I know some of them think it’s great, but it marks him out as classless, as a guy who should be embarrassed when viewed alongside Ange and how he deals with this stuff.

That is a weird football club over there, and some folk go a bit nuts when they arrive in it. He would never behave that way in England, because nobody in England would indulge this kind of nonsense for two seconds. But at Ibrox this kind of behaviour is seen as perfectly normal, and even reasonable. But it’s childish and it makes him seem small.

That man is off to the perfect star over there, because he fits right in. But with every act like this he makes it that little bit harder to be taken seriously. He makes it that little bit harder for him to salvage his own reputation for when he has to slink back to England.

He is a mug that he does not recognise that fact.

    Petty minded, no class, talks bollocks and pishful thinking, adopts the klan’s “values” to sook in with the fascist moron huns.

    Yep The Bealer and the huns are made for each other.

      Same as sevy g when after his first game he made perhaps the most ironic statement ever made decisions have been going against this club for years.

  • Frankie says:

    It proves this guy has not a brain, the mole on his face is bigger going to a club with no money , James you would be better calling him KAA the snake out of jungle book.

  • Seppington says:

    Aye Ready…to behave like petty children.

    He knows he’s going to have the klan baying for his blood soon enough so he thinks he’ll maybe survive beyond the summer if ge accumulates enough staunch points. They’re kinda like Pokémon for scumbags, gotta catch ’em all…Prodémon…

    As my old landlord Inthe Smoke used to say when I worked there years ago ; Merci bucket mosh ….

  • Stephen Mc Dowell says:

    Same class of shite that Pedro tried when he barred green boots, that worked out well.
    Pathetic predictable horseshit.

  • Joseph Mcaleer says:

    A sad place.and a strange mindset,
    Reminds me of A Good Ol’ Boy’s kind of a place.

  • Voice of Reason says:

    I don’t kno why the FILTH don’t just employ the Joe Pasquale soundalike fur the role, be a hell ae a lot cheaper! PISH like “A Luv ma Ranjerks soz a dae” is just whit the Knuckodraggaz Luv tae hear! Just NAE POINT trying tae Fathom whit rolls aboot in their THICK SKULLS.. FRIGHTENING!!



  • Effarr says:

    Just refer to him as the manager of Old Firm FC. Get that horrible title transferred to THEM and eventually any negative stories referring to the OF will point to them and them alone.

    When a Celtic fan called them the Old Firm on Snyde One the snyde ones were squirming in their seats, going by the sound of their angry snickers.

    I don’t think calling him the Mooch will have any desired effect

  • Martin says:

    Not at all surprised. The guy showed what he is when he hung around when van Bronckhorst was still about. The hibs manager said as much (and good on him for it).

    He can say what he likes though, reality is about to kick in and we will all see whether he is what he thinks he is, or a mediocre manager who struggled with QPR then left in such a way that he really needs to get it right with sevco, because nobody else is going to consider him.

  • Nick66 says:

    Mick was, I believe, responding to the ‘more concerned about my dinner ‘, quote. Thought he was being witty. I’ll let this one pass as an ego hurt and a pathetic response.

  • Johnny Green says:

    All’s fair in love and war and a snide comment from Mick does not bother me. I don’t like anyone on our side showing them respect by calling them Rangers*, calling them ‘Sevco’ or the other team would be much preferable. They don’t deserve respect.

  • Walter Chinstrap says:

    Unfortunately this wankpuffin will get off to a winning start at The Needle-exchange as Hibs don’t have a hope there.
