Celtic Fans Are Sick Of Hearing Former Flops Run Down The Standard Of Our League.

If Henrik Larsson were to go on TV and say that he found the Scottish top flight too easy when he was here, I could probably live with that. He scored over 200 goals in a Celtic strip.

I think he’d have found just about any environment easy but if he said it about Scotland people would not really have much to object about. He was light years above this level.

What does tend to grate is players who left Celtic because they weren’t good enough to shine in this league running it down. That pisses you off. That makes you want to tell these guys to keep their traps shut lest they embarrass themselves.

The latest is Eyal Berkovic who was one of the laziest and least interested footballers I think I’ve ever witnessed wearing a Celtic strip. He had occasional flashes of brilliance, but occasional is the operative word. He cost us near enough £6 million at a time when that was a colossal sum of money. It was wasted, entirely, on the guy.

I can’t abide these people, people who played a handful of games for us and then go away thinking that they were supreme conquerors. He most certainly was not and nor have some of the others who have done it over the years.

Not only is it an insult to the league and the other clubs in it – and there was a decent enough standard when he was at Parkhead, so I have no idea what in God’s name he is rambling about – but it’s an insult to all of us who had to pay to watch this pretender moping about the pitch.

Martin O’Neill took one look at this joker when he arrived at the club and decided that he would not do at all.

I can understand in part then why he’s bitter. But honestly, he should keep this kind of whinging to himself because it doesn’t impress anyone who watched him play up here.

    Compare his comments to Filip Bencovic who rates his season here as the best of his career.
    Would have flourished with someone like CCV beside him.

    it is the latest narrative / Agenda by the media. PLZ Clyde, BBC. To belittle our achievements. But dont they see, that if we are winning against diddies then what about newco and hertz the darlings of the MSM.
    This started on FF and on the same day PLZ came out with it. Coincidence or what.

    He was a wee moanin faced arse and disruptive in the dressin room when he was at CP. We were well shot of him. Was the same at west ham when big John cleared his heed.

  • John S says:

    Somebody put him on TV ? I wonder why.

  • Captain Swing says:

    He was a useless front-bottom. Not a fraction of the player Moravcik was.

  • Johnny Green says:

    Sepp, If you are trying to make sense out of anything scud book says then you are going to struggle a wee bit.

  • Michael Clark says:

    Ita amazing how it all becomes sour grapes and they blame it on… not interested… crap league…. I’m better than that!? The truth is its the very opposite, anyone who doesn’t cut it in any walk of life blames every thing or everyone else. This guy wouldn’t have got a game for Neil Lennon side and we all remember that side.

  • Martin says:

    I remember him. He was unimpressive. I think 9 goals and 2 assists in his entire time here. Later “played” for Man City a few times and didn’t do much there either. The fact is he was kept out of the Celtic team by better midfielders… Like Jamie Smith.
