The daily news updates on Covid 19 have become part of the norm as have the demented Sevco fans ranting and raving on Social Media as their leaders over at Ibrox continue to spout out crap about foul play around Hampden, while they continue to pull the wool over their loyal fans eyes. They are even rolling old Stevie G out with a wee statement here or a sound bite there to make sure season books are renewed.
They love an old season book drama, The Craig White era should still be to the forefront of their minds each time season book renewal forms come through the post.
We all know its only a false front, really they want to bank the cash for finishing in second place to the mighty Celtic so they can continue to stay afloat, old dodgy Dave jumped ship, that old sinking feeling which left Douglas Park and Stewart Robertson to steer the ship into unchartered waters and a World pandemic.
Douglas and his pals in the boardroom at Ibrox are looking for someone to blame and with Celtic keeping quiet and going about their business in a professional manner with the champagne on ice, they have turned their frustration towards the powers that be in Scottish football, blaming Neil Doncaster, Mike Mulraney, Dundee, the Pope and the cancelling of Love Island for all their woes.
They have stumbled from one crisis to another ever since David Murray ruined the club he built up by financial doping and cheating the whole of Scottish football. If Douglas, board members and their fans want to blame someone for Celtic being 13 points clear with a 25 goal difference and who are about to win their ninth title in a row, then they should look no further than their manager’s office.
Stevie G, yes the same man who celebrating beating Celtic before the winter break as if those 3 points won that day had secured him his first league title of both his playing and management career. He showed his inexperience that day at Celtic Park. Neil Lennon and the Celtic players learned from that day and came back from Dubai and went on a great run. The same cannot be said of his team.
Hearts battling relegation in the face disposed of them both in the League and the Scottish Cup. While Aberdeen, Kilmarnock, St. Johnstone and the mighty Hamilton took points off them as Celtic prepared to put them to the sword at Ibrox.
If Stevie G wasn’t on a nice earner with his high profile then Graeme Murty could have been back in charge before Celtic rode into Ibrox on the back of an unbeaten domestic run.
The fact is they need the money from the SPL, they don’t want to play out the season that would see Celtic crowned Champions instead they want the league to be null and void.
They can’t afford to pay off their manager and they are behaving like spoiled children but they can stamp their feet all they want but Scottish football does not have the wealth of the Bundesliga and Celtic will be crowned Champions sooner rather than later.
Suck it Up, Move on and get your own house in some kind of order before you release another dossier because Celtic are here for 10 in a row.
