Good grief, have you seen this latest piece of anti-Celtic bile from David Tanner?
What a ridiculous comment.
What a spiteful, bitter pro-lbrox lickspittle that man is. Imagine using the word “fact” to punctuate a statement so completely devoid of any. Has he got a single thing right in that tweet? He spells Maeda’s name right I suppose.
Let’s start with his question; does Maeda’s injury obviate any defence of his tackle? You know what, no it does not.
The tackle didn’t merit a red card. Period. That he’s the only one injured in it shows you that it was not malicious or reckless and didn’t deserve that sanction. The injury only increases my conviction that the decision is ludicrous.
What’s his problem with people having their say on this issue?
He seems pissed off about it, doesn’t he? But why? Is someone defending a Celtic player really enough to trigger his rage? Man, oh man, he’s in the wrong business if he can be wound up as easily as that.
The second part of his tweet contains enough stupidity that it could fill four or five columns by The Village Idiot.
For one thing, Maeda didn’t endanger his opponent in any way, shape or form. He had a high foot, but the Atletico player made a meal out of it. He didn’t endanger himself either. It was a simple coming together; these things happen every single week.
And since when is the second derby “the biggest game of any season”?
So, what, it’s bigger than a treble winning Scottish Cup Final? Bigger than a major European tie?
That’s the first time I’ve ever heard that particular nonsense and with any luck it’s something that will never be repeated again.
What a moronic statement.
Then there’s the last bit; “The narrative was shifted to “scrap VAR”, blithely ignoring this key fact.” The first part of that statement is garbage.
The narrative was not “shifted.” VAR was the point. It was a yellow card challenge overturned by VAR, so what in God’s name is this eejit prattling on about?
And since that point is as stupid as the rest that renders the entire tweet fact-free and yet he’s got the cheek to end it with that particular word.
Here’s a fact; Tanner is a washed-up former TV presenter who will probably never again see the inside of a proper studio, and that’s fitting because he was like a bad joke anyway.
He’s bitter about that no doubt, and I would be in his shoes when even The Village Idiot can still get a gig and he can’t, but he was bitter before then anyway and we know how it manifested. He has been pronouncedly anti-Celtic all the way, and I do not miss his “insights”.
But the mind boggles reading that rant; where the Hell did that come from? What possessed him to unleash like that?
That’s the behaviour of someone who has Lost The Plot.
