The Record’s Piece On Celtic In The Champions League Is Abysmal Pro-Ibrox Nonsense.

Image for The Record’s Piece On Celtic In The Champions League Is Abysmal Pro-Ibrox Nonsense.

You would think have suffered the epic humiliation last season of finishing rock bottom of their Champions League group with the worst record in the history of the competition that the Ibrox club’s media allies would be leery of writing anything bold and brassy about how things might shape up in the coming year.

But they’re not.

Today that rag The Daily Record produced a piece of Ibrox feel-good which said that should they qualify for the Groups that they will face an easier time than Celtic because they’ll be in Pot 3 whereas we are in Pot 2.

This is all part of the alleged Europa League final dividend.

“The tantalising (Ibrox) Champions League reward as mystic model sees them get the edge over Celtic” says the headline of this abysmal article. It’s the word “mystic” that makes me laugh; this is all predicated on who wins national titles as well.

But the broad strokes of it are probably on the nose.

If they get there. Which is just one of the many things wrong with this searing piece of insight. This, of course, is by no means guaranteed, although to read the article you would think it’s virtually sewn up.

Another important thing to remember is that a Pot 3 seeding isn’t necessarily a free pass.

They could easily get a team from France, Germany, Spain or England in Pot 4. Right now the teams on their radar include Sociedad, Marseille, Newcastle and Union Berlin.

In fact, they have better than a 50/50 chance of landing one of those teams as things stand.

Honestly, I’ve already read no end of feel-good guff for their fans but this is a piss take even by the normal standards. Imagine using “don’t worry about not winning the league, next year in Europe you’ll be seeded higher than Celtic” to massage their hurt feelings.

That will really help them sleep at night as we hold aloft the Scottish Cup to complete the treble, won’t it?

    I nearly won the lottery on Saturday a got 3 numbers that’s the equivalent of that DROSS written in the daily sevco.

  • Michael McCann says:

    Has it ever occurred to the entire following of Scumbrox that they will have a weaker squad than they have this season. Who will they buy from their sweetshop money that will have any influence in them improving. Does anyone with a brain or/and morality would join that sectarian cesspit of losers. Look at the following, that tells it all. Who would want to play for that

    • Martin says:

      No, of course it hasn’t. They genuinely haven’t even thought about that. Next season they’re probably going to lose some of their current losers and replace with cut price gambles.

      Or are they? Wilson may have left before they pressed the big red self destruct button that goes directly to uefa fsr dept.

  • Geoff says:

    In every sport in the world the higher the seeding the better.
    Except when it involves Sevco.
    When any club loses a player to freedom of contract it’s bad business.
    Except Sevco when it could be a blessing in disguise.
    You are now entering The Twilight Zone
