I see Celtic’s name was dragged by the media into what some low-life vandals did outside Ibrox this week – and a few years ago, for good measure. There are low-life vandals out there, and we don’t have a way to filter them out of the Celtic support, so I‘d not dispute any of the tangential links, but vandalism like this happens all too often without media coverage.
When stories suddenly appear to be so well framed in the newspapers, you have to wonder why? Or who is behind them?
There’s a big play underway for what, in this context, should be called Supremacy in Scotland. Celtic have it right now and no one else is strong enough to eclipse them. The best way to achieve this is to destabilise the club. It’s worked, but only to an extent.
I read Paul Larkin on Hail Hail Media this morning who raises some interesting questions on what’s going on and what we should do about it, “as a collective, cannot be beaten”. It’s hard to argue with.
