Sakala Wasn’t Trolling Celtic, He Was Shaming His Club. Even An Ex-Ibrox Captain Knows It.

Image for Sakala Wasn’t Trolling Celtic, He Was Shaming His Club. Even An Ex-Ibrox Captain Knows It.

As The Daily Record scrambles like mad to find other examples of “trash talking” before Glasgow derbies, even someone as intellectually challenged as Barry Ferguson sees the writing on the wall. What Fashion Sakala did the other day was not trash talking. It was unprofessional disrespect, and he was encouraged to do by people at his club.

Everyone knows this, and everyone knows how counter-productive it was.

Nobody believes that came off the top of his own head, so somebody, doubtless desiring to play to the Goons Gallery as much as possible, put him up to it and damn the consequences.

Ferguson knows that as well, which is why he said these things have a habit of coming back to haunt folk.

Celtic sites were pretty scornful of his behaviour yesterday, and Ibrox fan sites have had a ball saying that we’ve “taken the bait” or that we’re losing our minds. But Barry Ferguson is a former Ibrox captain. He knows when someone has made a raging clown of themselves whilst representing the club, and it’s him saying this, not us.

“I always respected, always, that went out the window when you crossed the white line but I think you have got to give respect,” he said. “If you are not respectful, nine times out of 10 you are going to get a slap in the face.”

On their forums, some of their fans aren’t best pleased by his comments. There is a general view amongst a lot of them that some of their people are “too friendly” with folks at Celtic and that because they themselves wallow in hatred that everyone at Ibrox should do the same, and clearly for some at the club that’s the way they want to go.

But I do remember a time when there were standards, some anyway, and a sort of mutual respect between the players and the management team. Hearing Sakala caustically refer to us yesterday in that derisive manner they seem a long time ago.

Yet that only reflects badly on one club, not on both.

And if you want to know who said so, look no further than Ferguson himself, who laments it and worries that it will cost them too.

    Much ado about nothing, a mountain out of a molehill, sticks and stones etc.

    It means nothing unless he gets a reaction…. and he did.

    Don’t worry, their gas will be at a peep next week.

      Indeed JG, the lad was set up by a “team mate”, perhaps a bitter goalie still raging over the Thistlegate goal.
      His interview was all about his village in Zambia, and why not.
      He’ll be brought back to reality come Sunday evening, that’s where the insignificant point will become irrelevant.

        Maybe it was the village idiot that told him to say it then!!……….. Sorry I’ll get my coat! ?

    Nothing to see here says who,the panel on radio snyde earlier the soup taker Wison backed this up giving it,it was just a bit of banter.
    Then McCann the BIGGEST FAILURE ever in football has been mouthing off as well,apparently sevco can win the TREBLE.
    Definitely been sniffing something that klown probably his ex-wife’s Carter-Vickers.

      Listen in to Snyde every night, purely to hear the sad sack Sevconians. The pundits, or is it punnets of Strawberry Fields tab delusional OF pish. Ecstasy has taken over a good old honest Trip, and Deludimol has probably usurped whatever happy wanderings they could have enjoyed. I’ll stick to the legal stuff for a bit.

    Juranovic just scored against Ajax, well done to him.

    The Govan club and the more staunch of its support seem to be inherently evil. They do have some very decent supporters who are embarrassed by all this, but the club is the most divisive unit in the Scottish football scene and care for nobody but themselves. We all hoped the new incarnation would see sense and respect the other clubs, but no. They have held on to the worst elements in their support while others have seen sense and left.
    Unfortunately, the Scottish Establishment are generally happy with this club which indeed is Scotland’s shame. Some politicians need to examine their consciences.

    It would seem that Sakala is not the brightest spark. It is better to keep your mouth shut and let everyone think you are a fool, rather than open it and prove you are a fool.

  • SSMPM says:

    Fck em all, Wilson’s always agreeing wi his hun panellists and hasn’t yet apologised for blaming Celtic fans for starting the disrespect at the midden’s non silence, indeed he’s gotten more staunch. Sad Prick Traitor.
    Onion B are joint top of their league & it’s Shirley’s eyes wi tears in them. JJ put decent money in our coffers and is doing just fine. I reckon he made a good club choice moving nearer home to a decent on the rise club.

  • Andrew Lamb says:

    I’m hoping for a win that sees the twisted old hun in goal for them have a nightmare and Sakala get that constant fvcking smile wiped off his face hope the twat runs into a post and loses all his teeth. I hope our boys are as fired up as we are, wipe the floor with this bunch of chancers, and put the first nail in Del Boy Beales’s coffin.All this shit coming from them and their media buddies needs to be rammed down their throat.

      I think you should give the Team Talk at 2.50pm Sunday lol.
      Agree with every word. Their’s nothing more satisfying than beating the Hun.

    In Zambia there are nearly 80 tribal groups and the use of “our mob” or “the mob boss” is sometimes used. It doesn’t mean the shared interest group is dysfunctional or out-of-control. In English the word mob is derived from the Latin: mobile vulgus, “excitable crowd”.
    Is Fashion confused?. “What did I say that offended. James Forrest called us, the other mob”.
    Just loud rhetoric in the buildup to the game. Keep it flowing James, Chris S and Barry F.

  • Paul says:

    Fantasy landscape of mammoth proportions that they dwell in. A resounding result for not only Celtic but football as a whole would unlock a huge amount of bile on their part and moreover a huge amount of realism that even they seem to be recognising (that banner) is and will be the future. The bigotry will always be there for them, we just have to keep putting it back in the box. Football will prevail come Sunday. HH

    The vermin cheat sakala has shamed his village has shamed his country has shamed his family and sold his soul to the brethren and is condemned to walk in purgatory for eternity.
