What a wonderful world we live in.
One were Celtic fan media do the work of the journalists and those same hacks take exception of it.
I’ve lost count of the amount of times The Daily Record, The Sun and A.N. Other SMSM outlet has jumped on the back of something I’ve written and they give no credit for it. But that is how they work.
They use us when it suits, and lambast us when it doesn’t.
It’s par for the course. They play using a different set of rules and that’s fine. But when they play the game of using their social media accounts to try and encourage a pile on, that is when they are found wanting.
Because Celtic fans are not daft. They see through the mud that mainstream journo’s sling. That’s why site’s like mine, Vital Celtic, The Celtic Blog and Videocelts, Celts are Here and 67 Hail Hail are thriving. As are many others.

Pretty much sums up the rugger guy tbf.
