The Daily Records latest hilarious pro Sevco Alfie piece is desperate stuff
‘Darlin’ you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
If you say that you are mine
I’ll be here ’til the end of time
So you got to let me know
Should I stay or should I go?‘
Did The Clash have magical soothsaying abilities that they wrote this song with the Buffalo in mind?
Never has a song been so apt for one man than this. Alfredo Morelos enters the last year of his contract the clamour to either try and sell him for £20m by the Scottish media or get him to stay is depressingly familiar.
After ‘news’ broke last week that Seville were ‘poised’ for a £20m move (yeah, I know) it’s now the turn of ex player soundbites pleading with the striker to stay. And why?
Because no one wants him. He’s not a team player and whilst his discipline has improved, there is always that wee niggle at the back of your barnet that given the right prod and poke, Alfie could explode and cost the team on the pitch.
The Daily Record didn’t disappoint today. They wheeled out Marco Negri with his ‘regrets’ about leaving the club too soon.
Only problem is, Alfie has been there for four long years. Negri couldn’t last one.
Negri eventually left Rangers after a falling out with Celtic hero, David Murray, who also stopped his wages whilst still an employee at the club. So quite why he would be begging a guy he doesn’t know to stay at the club is bewildering.
But that’s the media in Scotland. They need to put out these pro Rangers stories to curry favour with the club.
It’s embarrassing for them when you consider the disdain the Ibrox club holds them in.
But it was this little gem from Negri that showed me that this was an Ibrox fluff piece, “I realised how big the club was only after I signed.
“I remember my first game was the Nike Family Day, it was a training match between the squad – but more than 40,000 people showed up. It was incredible.
“I immediately knew it was a top club.
“Now it’s 25 years on and a lot of time has passed.
“I’m so happy the club is back at the top in Scotland and in Europe.”
Someone needs to remind him who won the league last season……..
