Kenny Miller. What a whiner.
He’s in the papers today moaning about the use of the phrase “the gap.”
Even as he does so, he continues to push the line that the one reflected by the league table is exaggerated because the games between the two clubs have been “close.”
What a comedy act he’s turning into, this guy.
He’s been talking about “the gap” for many months. And suddenly he doesn’t like it? Suddenly he doesn’t want to hear any more about it? Well, maybe he should stop talking about it himself. Maybe he should stop referencing it.
Because all he does is makes himself look and sound like an idiot.
I mean, did he not say, in the same interview – the same damned interview – that a couple of signings was all the Ibrox club needed to close it? Honestly, when someone proves himself too stupid to be taken seriously, why does our media act as if he should be?
A couple of years back, when his favourite team found themselves briefly on top, we were told that we were miles behind because that’s what the league table reflected. Now the league table should be ignored and “the gap” measured by individual games?
Motherwell were the last team to take points off us.
Maybe the gap has closed there too?
Is that what’s he’s saying? Because it is the bizarre, ridiculous, logic of his position. He will doubtless say that we would beat Motherwell nine times out ten … he’s right. But we’ve won three out of four since The Mooch came in and drew the other.
So where’s the logic of his position now? He’s a moron.
As I’ve said repeatedly on this site, all this talk about the gap accomplishes is to let them kid themselves that things aren’t as bad as they seem for their club. They can’t seem to stop and bring themselves to ask “well what if they are?” What if things are as bad as they seem?
The Mooch doesn’t believe it, by the way.
That’s why he’s gone from lauding the talents in the squad to wanting to dismantle it and start again.
The Ibrox fans, in the main, don’t believe it either but some of them are just bombastic enough to tell us that there’s not much between the teams. They better hope the board takes the manager’s view and not theirs.
Because if so, a long summer will seem even longer.
In the meantime, Kenny Miller continues to prove that he’s the latest person to find his way into a media career without enough operating brain-cells to properly analyse what’s in front of him.
Between that and his bias, BBC Sports Scotland should be so proud of their hiring policies.
