Celtic Fans Know Kent Is A Cowardly Thug With Previous For Off-The Ball Brutality.

Image for Celtic Fans Know Kent Is A Cowardly Thug With Previous For Off-The Ball Brutality.

Last night, when I saw that the BBC match reporter had given Ryan Kent the man-of-the-match award for their cup semi final, I spent five minutes trying to think of what he had done during the game which could have inspired such a bizarre decision.

And then it was obvious.

Kent’s prior cult status with the Ibrox fans – before they realised what a waste of a jersey he is – rests on a single moment, a single cowardly act, against Scott Brown. Yesterday he lashed out at Liam Scales, a Celtic player on loan at Pittodrie. Perhaps that was what inspired that choice, I don’t know, but it was all I could come up with.

On a day when the media isn’t using the words “official interpretation” in relation either to the Giakoumakis decision or the one involving their own Ben Davies, that is what’s being bandied about in relation to Kent’s vicious moment of violence.

Interpretation. Was it really violent conduct or something else?

It’s a bit like asking whether or not you see Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as exactly that or a “special military operation”, which is the way that the Kremlin has tried to frame it.

We know what we watched.

It is pathetic to attempt to explain it away as something else, and trying to tell us that it was something else is a bit like Richard Pryor’s joke “I don’t care what you think you saw … you’re gonna believe me, or your lying eyes?”

Kent is a brute. The Brown incident is not the only example of it. I joke on this site often about him having one of those faces that would make you click on a Netflix documentary. I call him The Trailer Park Serial Killer because that’s the impression I always get looking at that sallow face, those cold eyes, those tattoos and because I remember that punch on our captain.

The hype that surrounds him as a player has long been misplaced.

He did very little of quality or of note in that match yesterday.

His goal against Celtic was decent, but it was the only thing he produced in the course of the game but it was enough to maintain the illusion that he has become some tremendous player since The Mooch came in.

The SFA has to take another look at that incident, and if they do I think they can only conclude that it was an act of neddish thuggery for which a suspension is in order.

    The sfa will definitely NOT look at that tackle/assault on Scales, as cheating’ beaton put it when asked by Joe Hart if he was going to look at VAR for the goldson handball incident he replied…

    WIT FUR.

    I read his lips, he said it twice. It’s very convenient that his name rhymes with cheating.

    The sfa won’t even be thinking about putting that under consideration, far less doing calling it for what it was, assault.

      (Forgive me Lord for I have Sinned)
      For curiosity I have just listened to SSB.
      Cammy Bell who did play for the Govan mob,and that aresole Keevins impersonating as a journalist,both said Kent was innocent off anything wrong against Liam Scales.
      Gordon Duncan let’s not go there.
      Walsh and Beaton allowed to Referee the “””Old Firm”””” games would not be allowed in any other country.
      It’s all a crooked Deck.
      Come on Celtic win this treble sicken them H H

  • Frankie says:

    Will they even bother to look at it

  • Martin.H says:

    Wouldn’t do it on the street, not a thug but a coward, his thing is probably beating a woman up, but if you live in Scotland, we don’t have women anymore, sturgeon has erased them.

    • Henriksgoldenboot says:

      Brilliant Martin!!! Lol love it. Sturgeon. Isn’t that a fish that can change sex?

  • Scud Missile says:

    Clarke Kent the Supernan CARDBOARD GANGSTER.

  • Scud Missile says:

    A right good boot in the baws would sort him out after he got tattooed to wall,he’s a SHITEBAG.

  • Eamonn Little says:

    He totally shat a brick,and was living like Salman Rushdie for a while after he done that gun to head gesture to our fans after scoring couple of years back,and was asked by our fans to explain that gesture.We knew the sub text of that ,like we do with the bouncy bouncy song.

    100% thug S F A MUST ACT

  • Eire goCeltic says:

    Ryan Kent should be “on report” by now.
    In all team sports a punch to the head with a clenched fist
    is reported to the judiciary. Jim Goodwin saying nothing means gutless.
    Thousands saw it and they know it was a hard punch. Liam kindly said he felt he was punched.
    That’s what they say when they don’t want to dob-in another player.
    James has spoken. Sutton has spoken. Thousands saw the punch and ask why Kent is not
    “on report”.

  • Eire goCeltic says:

    sorry, to jim goodwin. it’s not his job to report players or comment on the blatant …

  • Kevin lee says:

    Hi can’t Celtic approach the SFA and ask them to ban kent for a minimum 10 games After all Scales is still a celtic employee and has been assaulted in front of thousands of witnesses this should also be a criminal offence and MUST be reported as such by the clubs lawyers.
