You know something is going down when Statements of Distraction are issued with wanton abandon. Craig Whyte’s book release on Friday, is one possibility.
I wonder if Craig will reproduce fawning text messages he received from a current SPFL club PR head, asking for a job, among other things.
Then there is Ofcom, who are in receipt of Celtic’s letter and who have the authority to demand Sky reveal who transcribed Alfredo Morelos interview, incorrectly inserting accusations of racism. If ownership of that issue is traced back to another SPFL club, charges of bringing the game into disrepute are sure to follow.
In other matters, Newco chairman Dave King recently announced plans to step down this year, when the club holds a share issue to raise funds. Newco’s current PR is an acquired taste. It remains to be seen if a new owner, or ownership group, feel their profile would be best projected by the existing PR.
Still, at least he’s not burned bridges with the media.
Our best wishes to Jackie McNamara, one of the men who stopped the 10, and is described as critical but stable in Hull Royal Infirmary after collapsing yesterday.
