Quantcast

Michael, they have taken you away… from Ibrox

1425

If you aggregate the nods, winks and rumours around Celtic this week you might be inclined to think we’re in the market for a target-man striker with a few years’ experience under his belt.  I agree with the principle that we need a target man and I’m also of the view that short-term deals are not nearly as desirable as permanent contracts, but as we know, it’s too easy to load the club full of squad players who cumulatively cost a lot of money but scarcely trouble the first team.

Hooper, Stokes, Samaras, Bangura, Rasmussen and Murphy are all under contract for next season and we cannot be confident of attracting bids for any of those Neil Lennon might want to move on.  If we add a seventh striker, his name better be on the team sheet before Gary Hooper’s.  Signing an exotic version of Daryl Murphy would add spice to our week but would only consume scarce resources.  I’d rather not.

Co-opting a media partner works in theory.  It’s always better to have good relationships with the media than the kind of relationships Celtic perennially have, but what happens when your media partner plays with a straight bat?

Rangers media partner, STV, today report Nigerian trialist, Michael Uchebo, boarded a plane out of Glasgow a few hours after arriving (Michael, they have taken you away….) as the VVV-Venlo striker with 8 career goals to his name had “a poor first impression of” Rangers.

Michael, you clearly have a rubbish strike rate but you’re a remarkably perceptive individual.

  1. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    Make people redundant make huge losses be 80% owned by you and me the taxpayers and for doing this earn nearly a million pound bonus as the head honcho.Royal Bank of Scotland like most banks dont live in the same world as you and I.We are in a recession jobs are going all over the UK and RBS have already and continue to pay off thousands as the old saying goes its an ill divided world. .What are our goverment doing about it ? nothing other than murmering we cant believe it the RBS Board made this decision not the government well if we own 80% Mr.Cameron surely you should be stepping in and telling them that with huge losses and redundancies that this is not on not just saying its not our decision.H.H.

  2. Jelavic WILL miss Rangers’ SPL match with Hibernian on Saturday because of an illness which has kept him out of training with the squad for the past two days.

     

     

     

    If they drop more points tomorrow, when will the laptop loyal print the ‘Time To Go!’ headlines…

  3. Snake Plissken on

    Even missing the diving Croat they’ll beat Hibs. Hibs are completely rank rotten and they might very well go down.

     

     

    Dreadful team.

     

     

    Well put it this way, if they fail to beat Hibs they are in more bother than we’ve seen so far.

  4. This tennis is gripping. Packed the bhoy off to school this morning then sat down with a coffee to see how Murray was doing. I’m going to have to do the school pick up at the end of this match. What a waste of a day off.

    All the more reason to insist that a newco huns isn’t allowed straight into the SPL.

  6. Ten Men Won The League on

    A great article but another striker before the window closes is a must imo. We currently have 3 fit strikers, and it does not look likely that Bangura will appear again before March. Signing/Loaning another striker does not guarantee us the league but is sure as hell improves our chances of doing so

     

     

    This time, let’s not forget to turn the hosepipe on :)

  7. Ten Men Won The League on

    I posted earlier this morning that Jelavic would miss tomorrows game. I was intrigued by what excuse they would use for it. Illness eh? Is that what they call having a tantrum these days?

     

     

    By the way, not one Russian club is interested in signing him at the price Rangers are asking

  8. Fantastic effort, Andy.

     

     

    You are SOME CHOKER !!!!

     

     

    A sporting CLASSIC.

     

     

    TWO HEROES.

    Yep. We need to fight the very suggestion that that could be allowed to happen on all fronts.

  10. Speaking of the loyal press, which is the Evening Times reminding the ref that Matthews is only one yellow away from a ban?
