Inner Record culture disrobed, signing up to the Celtic rulebook


In many places it would be practically inconceivable that someone could be employed in this position:

And get away with running rubbish like this on a back page cover:

But then you see more and get a picture of the organisation involved:

The Record have been caught displaying their inner culture and will no doubt be forced into a remedial action, but getting caught was just misfortune. The culture exists and has informed articles for years.  They have gone too far down this road to even begin to understand what they’ve done to a once-strong demographic.

An echo reached me from 2012 today, which illuminated yesterday’s article. As the SPL debated serious issues in 2012, a consensus emerged on what subsequently took place. There were hold-outs to the new majority, however.

One director of a club near Glasgow (no guesses, now) made his position clear: “I’m not signing up to any f****** Celtic rulebook.”

The comment met with incredulity, as the Celtic rulebook wasn’t part of the conversation. Fans and clubs across the country came to the same conclusion about how our game should proceed.  It was no more the Celtic rulebook than the Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs rulebook, but prejudices occasionally seep out when people don’t get what they want.

This is what we’re up against. They are still out there, writing articles for the paying public, or voting on the future of our game.

As for the Celtic rulebook, I’ve seen it. It contains one page and only three words: “Pay your bills.” That doesn’t sound like much but remarkably, it may deliver 20-in-a-row. I hope others don’t start to copy us.

  1. The Record, The Sun, and the rest need to be binned. You cannot reason with idiots.


    The idea that Celtic are helpless is nonsense.


    If you want something to happen, then make it happen. Thus Brexit, Trump, and anything like these occurances make people take notice. You may disagree with the outcomes, but every one had a say in these happenings by virtue of a vote.


    Celtic are the biggest (and best) club in Scotland. If they ban the rags then the rest of the UK has to take notice.


    There is no sense in appealing to or relying on their better side.


    They haven’t got one.


    If they yelp about being censored, answer them in one word—liquidation.

    ‘but every one had a say in these happenings by virtue of a vote.’






    Certainly on the EU referendum. The American Presidential election, not so much.




    I think you might have to give us a clue.

  8. I think the tweet was an abomination, I also think the anti Celtic stories were I’ll advised and are far too common in this paper. Put simply, apart from us, nobody likes seeing Celtic doing so well, on and off the park.



    Regarding anti PL articles, dosent really bother me, perhaps years of CQN have made me immune to it.

  12. For generations we have been despised by many in this land because of the Irish roots that many of us share. Now that we have moved up in the world producing doctors, teachers, lawyers, etc., there is a view abroad that feels the only way to match our gains is to mock us and to slander us. In the past we have taken the flack and moved on. Today we have the means provided by CQN and other outlets to promote the truth and as result of being able to reach thousands of supporters; those who cannot accept the truth promote all sorts of devious plots to try to take us down.



    Like many on here I have asked the question as to why the club do not hunt these people and stop allowing them to advertise around our ground. Indeed I asked that question in a letter to Celtic Park and I was given the answer that some have already eluded too on here. It is difficult to ban press outlets when the people who are sponsoring the club wish to see their company given free advertising in the form of pictures of our matches where the team’s strips are promoting the logo of some firm or other.



    It is a difficult situation, but all of us can do something about the problem…stop buying the newspapers that are perpetrating lies about the club and the support. Hurt where it really hurts them. However it takes more than those of us who have stopped taking these papers years ago. We need a concerted effort from all levels of the support. Why don’t the various associations and affiliations of supporters club not asked their members to stop reading these rags? It would help if we were all on the one road.

  13. Phyllis Dietrichson on

    Connaire12 – good shout.



    I don’t believe Liverpool FC have ever officially said to their fans “Don’t buy The S*n”, probably for the reasons you explain, but their fan groups effectively arranged the boycott and no-one is in any doubt that the club support it.

  14. Looks like the attack dogs are back with sharpened claws.



    Think I’ll leave them to it.



    Outta here.

  15. Canamalar it looks like OCD obsession on

    Got to say, I’m lovin the trump stuff, it Hilaryous.


    It’s like the election actually mattered to the power of corporations ha ha ha

  16. What has been a bad day for the Daily Record has got worse.



    An Ibrox fan, pretending to be a journalist, has emailed the press office at RB Leipzig. He asked if the club “would make comment for my news article regarding the Scottish Press linking RB Leipzig with Glasgow Rangers player Barrie Mackay?”



    He continues by asking if they “can confirm if there is interest or talk taken place?”



    Benjamin Ippoliti from the press office at the German club replied:



    Good afternoon



    Off the record I can tell you, that there is no truth



    Kind regards






    There is a screenshot of this email exchange which I’ll post on the CQN Magazine page on Facebook.



    The Ibrox fan is now accusing Keith Jackson on telling lies.

  17. garygillespieshamstring on

    No doubt he has been sacked for the tweets and rightly so.


    Celtic should have banned them for the headline anyway.

  18. Canamalar,



    The whole inauguration is a big circus. Don’t know how proceedings will affect the ordinary people, but they certainly will affect all the celebrities who promised to bail out. The airports must be busy.




  19. cue ‘Barrie rejects £6 mil offer from German giants,to stay at Sevco……..’…oh how we laughed….

  20. If a “journalist” thinks Celtic’s domination of Scottish Football is bad for Scottish football then that is an opinion and they are free to argue the point.


    If they think that PL has too much power that is an opinion and they are free to argue the point.


    If they think that Celtic are not bringing through youngsters then they can argue the point.



    My problem is that it seems to be only Celtic that cause these problems. The dead team buying Butcher and Gascoine was apparently good for Scottish football


    The dead team dominating the game was great for Scottish football


    The SFA doing everything in it’s power to help them was good for Scottish football…



    You almost get the impression they may have a slight bias in their reporting….

  21. Canamalar it looks like OCD obsession on



    Celebrities and their greats to leave countries if they don’t get what they want eh Pima donnas :0)



    Was there no spate of them on brexit too ?

  22. PETEC on 20TH JANUARY 2017 3:26 AM



    Gordon Brown at least secured so many Jobs in Scotland for so many Tims and Rangers fans and others as well.



    *he also gave bader and the Ballymena demagogue a knighthood.



    PETEC on 20TH JANUARY 2017 3:44 AM



    Apparently Pence was a Catholic.



    *Unless he donned the black mass vestment,s and I don’t mean deidco/sevco strips, he still is, you cannae unbaptise yersell.



    Incidentally the B movie actor’s da Jack was a ben affleck, whose family were fae Tipperary, no idea if Ronnie was one but he was 11 when he was baptized intae his mother’s Disciples of Christ religion, their marriage had broken up at the time, he also was a Democrat and president of the screen actors guild and his first marriage tae Jane Wyman ended due tae political differences, she was a registered republican. He only became one in 1962 after marrying Nancy.



    As for born again Christians, spiritually not possible, you cannae be baptised/christened more than once.

    Anyway back to horses

    Might be worth a bet

  26. Paul67 et al



    Things I have discovered on here.


    The USA is a Federal Republic of 50 States, each of which has a role in electing the President.


    The Daily Record operates what it believes, wrongly, that attacking Celtic FC or the RC Church in Scotland, is the route to prosperity. And not the race to the bottom which many on here know.


    That a nonentity, described by the Rekker as ‘a casual reporter’ is allowed to present a back page story, headline and all. He is even more casual now.

  27. So, ye don’t buy the DR or, The Sun and then ye go inside Cellic Park, take yer seat and,…..


    …what do ye get…….?…..


    …Neon light sized adverts for – DR, The Sun for 2 hours !!!!….


    …So, where does the blame really lie….?…..


    …Ye see, we’ve now got Brendan out backing PL as well too….


    …Ye see, Brendan is cute enough to know where his breads buttered….


    …Ye see, Brendan knows full well that, if it wisny for PL’s policies…


    …Well, Brendan widny be at Cellic Park if it wisny for PL’s policies…


    …The policies of, recruiting puppet-managers who, put a product…


    …Onto the pitch that, chases 30,000 Cellic supporters oot they’re seats…


    …Now, if PL hadn’t pulled that trick…Brendan widny be needed…imho.


    …So, today’s lesson is – Apathy works…at the ole Parkheid…..


    …Anyway,….C’mon Big McGhee the morra….
