Cowardly Ned And Ex-Ibrox Flop Brutally Trolled By Celtic Fans After Greg Taylor Rant.

Image for Cowardly Ned And Ex-Ibrox Flop Brutally Trolled By Celtic Fans After Greg Taylor Rant.

I was highly reluctant to write this piece.

But I put it in as the first one of the day, because I thought that if I was going to tackle it I might as well do it early and get it over with.

I don’t like to give the oxygen of publicity to an idiotic ned who embarrasses himself on social media, but on this occasion, I thought I would make an exception for no other reason than he makes himself an easy target of ridicule.

Yesterday, someone attempted to goad Joey Barton on Twitter by posting a clip of him being upended by a superb Greg Taylor tackle.

I say attempted, but allow me to correct myself; a Twitter user called @cfcnialll did a little more than that. His post of that sublime moment when Taylor was still at Kilmarnock drove Barton into the kind of rage normally associated with people who have flunked the anger management class for the 15th time. Check out this inarticulate mess of rage …

Barton has 2.8 million followers. @cfcniall has 366; he deserves a lot more for finding Barton’s trigger point and hitting it with a sledgehammer.

Needless to say, Celtic fans are giving him a proper roasting over that lapse into full-on mouth-foaming lunacy. And deservedly so.

Shortly after he had gone into meltdown over that, he had the cheek to post this; “As I’ve told you all before, if you want the smoke, don’t come for me unless you have rhino skin. Mine is like Kevlar.”

Which will be why a random tweet drove him off his nut.

Imagine how thin-skinned and pathetic you actually have to be to respond like this to such a simple thing as the Greg Taylor clip? Does he really believe that he projects confidence and toughness with all this macho posturing?

The Taylor tweet is extraordinary for its ersatz aggressiveness; if he wants to find Greg Tayor, he can get him at Lennoxtown on any week day, but we know he’ll never make that journey just in case Scott Brown happens to be visiting at the same time.

If you’ve read some of his tweets lately, they are not the product of a settled, confident mind but those of someone who is riding the ragged edge. Normally that would engender a little human sympathy but he’s such an all-round eejit that it’s pretty hard to do.

He didn’t spend long enough up in Glasgow to learn too much about really hard guys, but if I was going to be in an honest-to-God showdown with someone I’d be much more worried about the sort of person who would just turn up where I was unannounced and unheralded than I would be by someone who shouted about it from the safety of a social media platform.

Maybe no-one ever told him the difference; maybe he’s gotten lucky in that regard.

I do know this; that stuff might go down well with his teenage fan club, but it’s harder to scare people in the real world. The stuff that might go over in the incel chat-rooms where his fanboys predominate but it doesn’t impress one single other person, anywhere.

After all, there is hard and there is playing at being hard.

Nothing screams pretend like claiming to be so incensed by something that you waited six years to deal with it, and then responded by sending a threatening Tweet.

That’s a joke, and a joke is all he is.

    I sort of pity him. I mind the time he appeared on Question Time wtih Piers Morgan. It was utterly bonkers.

    It’s wrong to troll him. He clearly has a mental condition. And I am being 100% geniune here. Stay clear. He needs help.

  • Jackson says:

    I read that from Barton too , what an idiot he is, “Broony might be around” :):):)

  • Joe Monaghan says:

    Absolute fanny

  • harold shand says:

    He was a bum then and he’s a bum now

  • Clachnacuddin and the Hoops says:

    I would call him Dum-barton – But that’d be the ultimate insult to the very fine folks of a very fine town 20 miles to The North-West of Glasgow !

  • Brattbakk says:

    He put a cigar out in a youth players eye. He’s a bully and a moron.

  • Gerry says:

    Joey Barton, a legend in his own lunchtime! Most famous or infamous for stubbing a cigar butt into a youth player’s eye! Yes, I think he’ll be on record for having mental health issues. Really not significant enough to warrant any of our time !

  • Bunter says:

    He definitely needs some kind psychiatric help. His grip on reality has gone. A total loser.

  • Captain Swing says:

    He needs to calm down, calm down, eh la’….. maybe a trip to the ‘airdresser for a bubble perm might improve the self-esteem he seems so lacking in, then perhaps grow a fine ‘tache and he can go full-on Yozzer Hughes.

    To utilise a term he will be familiar with, he really is a no-mark. More Jimmy Corkhill than Barry Grant anyway…..

  • Effarr says:

    And to think he had Celtic leanings at one time. A bit like Lundstrom.

  • Woodyiom says:

    Who is Joey Barton?

  • Scott Campbell says:

    Even the Rangers fans can’t stand this melt. And we’re all still waiting on him to sort out Broony. Absolute clown.
