Steve Conroy is a disgrace.
This is a guy who seems grimly determined to create a media career for himself by stirring the soup every chance he gets and he knows full well that a negative story about a Celtic player is guaranteed to get him in the papers.
The latest target of this appalling tactic is Reo Hatate, who he thinks should get a retrospective red card for a “dive” during the game against Hearts.
Oh there’s nothing controversial about that view, eah?
Nothing about that which will get him in the headlines, except that Reo would miss the game against Ibrox as well as the final, and for what?
For something that this guy thinks happened and which not a soul in the mainstream media commented on. It’s a line so nonsensical Robbie Neilson didn’t bother with it.
Read that again. Robbie Neilson, who never heard an excuse he didn’t like and especially not when it absolves him of responsibility for a loss to Celtic. He didn’t even bother to waste our time or his own with that line of argument.
That’s how pathetic this is. It’s nothing but Conroy trying to get his own name into the papers to promote his nonsense. There is no merit whatsoever to what he’s arguing, he’s simply stoking a controversy for his own ends at the expense of our player.
He can get away with this because there is literally nothing the club can do about it.
Because he’s not in the mainstream, although they lap up this kind of swill.
So banning him will have no effect and Ange, even if asked, would never respond in a way that give this joker more publicity. I’m not even sure I should be writing about him … but as he’s splashed all over the mainstream media tonight it makes little difference overall.
What we bloggers can do is call this out for the cheap and nasty tactic that it is and encourage Celtic fans to consider this behaviour if they are thinking of subscribing.
