Sevco fans sick abuse on Moussa Dembele tweet

Earlier in the week, I wrote about how Moussa Dembele tweeted about Scott Brown’s wind up of Ryan Kent.

The Celtic support lapped it up and, clearly, the tweet was sent as a bit of fun.

What I didn’t notice was the abuse aimed at the former Celtic striker from *Rangers fans as they mocked him for collapsing during a health scare when he was on loan at Atletico Madrid.

There really is no barriers these peepul will cross if they feel wronged.

Football banter should be kept to just that. Banter.

But there is a strong element of *Rangers twitter that simply cannot keep it to just that.

They either get personal, tweet child abuse point scoring rubbish and on some occasions, just downright shocking abuse.

Just like these guys did:

You just have to wonder at the mentality of these people.

“GVB should get another transfer window before we play Celtic” – Yes. This Sevco fan was completely serious

Out of everything I have read all week, this must be the most outlandish piece of nonsense I have ever seen.

With Celtic returning from the winter break with players returning from injury and strengthening their squad in the transfer market, the paranoia from Govan has been reeking out of them.

From claims that Celtic s**t it to face them on the 2nd January the next one to hit social media is now sporting integrity. And this one is a belter.

This *Rangers fan replied to a Celtic supporters tweet about sporting integrity with this belter:

A transfer window just for Gio. Just him. No one else.

And before anyone claims he was kidding. He wasn’t:

Just when you thought they couldn’t get anymore crazier than they are now, they come away with this one.

Ok, then why don’t we wind back the clock and let Celtic not pay taxes, issue side letters and use EBT’s to help try and stop the Oldco’s nine in a row because it’s all about sporting integrity right?

I’ll leave you with the dead clubs legacy.

“Celtic still need” – Barry Ferguson makes bizarre transfer claim

As Celtic gear up to face Alloa in the Scottish Cup tonight, all the focus of the transfer window is put on the back burner.

With an away tie against Barry Ferguson’s Alloa, the Hoops will look to do a professional job on The Wasps and book their place in the next round.

But as the Celtic manager tied up his fifth signing of the transfer window, Ferguson made a strange claim on The Go Radio Football Show as he says he still believes *Rangers squad is stronger than Anges, “I think as a manager if you’re wanting players, you want to get them in as quickly as possible. And that’s what Postecoglou has done.

And it’s good to get them in through the door. Get them used to the surroundings and new teammates.

And I’m sure they want to do a bit more business because Celtic do need players.

I think if you look at both Rangers and Celtic squads, I still believe that Rangers are still stronger and I do believe that Celtic still need to make another one or two signings.

But as a manager that’s what you want to do. Try and get your players in as early as possible in this window.”

With Ange now having at least two players for every position at Celtic (even before the signing of O’Riley), this is a rather strange comment to make by the former Oldco player.

But we all know where Barry’s allegiances lie so it really is no surprise.

Frank McAvennie takes the media coin and continues strange Celtic narrative

I am sick fed up hearing about this if I am honest.

If it is not single players the former Celtic striker is bleating on about it is now this.

This media concern about Celtic’s back line is just getting boring now and as long as former Celtic players like McAvennie keep bending the knee to it rather than standing up for the club, what chance do our players have?

Celtic’s defence has been the best in the country. All season. Even without Jullien.

So why, oh why, has McAvennie went on record again criticising it? In Football Insider, he said, “Strikers are great, I just think we’re a bit short at the back.

“Jullien isn’t back from his injury yet and even when he’s back it will take a while for him to get back up to speed.

“If he’s going to be missing, I would like to see the club go out and bring in another centre-back.

“I think the manager is clever enough to know that’s what he needs so, yeah, I think that will happen soon.

“We have such a talented attack and midfield now. I would just like to see a little bit more quality and depth in the defence.

“Take nothing away from Starfelt and Carter-Vickers, I thought they were both good against Hibs.

“But we are one injury away from the defence being a little bit shakey, in my opinion.”

Where does he get this from?

Even when Starfelt was injured for the whole of November, the defence stood strong. When Carter Vickers was suspended. No problem. Back door was still kept shut.

Frank would be best served defending the club against these stupid accusations instead of continuing them or he could soon find himself discredited amongst the Hoops support.

No wait……..

“Bringing the game into disrepute” – Marvin Bartley’s brilliant response to more Scott Brown Sevco crying

Scott Brown really has gotten under their skins hasn’t he.

No matter the colour of jersey Scott Brown wears, he still lives, rent free in their heads. And it is magical.

Dropping two vital points in the title race really has set the cat amongst the pigeons of the *Rangers supporters.

Or was it the penalty given against them? Or was it the red card? Or a combination of all three perhaps?

Whatever is was, it prompted this Rangers fans to claim Broony is bringing the game into disrepute when he called Clyde 1 SSB. Listen to Marvin’s repsonse:

“Scott Brown doing Scott Brown things”. You could just imagine the how that goes down in Edminston Way.

An outstanding response to a fan base that is, quite frankly, spent all week embarrassing itself over one man and two dropped points.

I think the tide is turning in Glasgow. I think they know it as well.

Four to stand trial accused of racism towards Kyogo

This is brilliant news.

Ever since Kyogo has come into Scotland it is widely accepted that the Japanese star has been a breath of fresh air to not only Celtic, but the Scottish game.

He has been hugely popular amongst the Celtic support, for obvious reasons, and for other rival teams supporters a pain in the backside for their defenses as he ran riot before his injury forced him out just before the winter break.

But not long into his time in Scotland, a film was released of *Rangers fans racially abusing the Japanese striker on a supporters bus in an act that shamed the club and Scottish society.

As the club banned the fans and released this statement at the time, “Those who partake in such behaviour are not representative of our club or the loyal support who have stood by us through thick and thin.

Celtic also responded at the time when they tweeted, “If reports are accurate then such sickening and pathetic racist behaviour directed towards Kyogo Furuhashi deserves absolute condemnation.”

Not only have the guys that completed this act received condemnation, they have also been told they will face trial as the Scottish courts now look at acting on and stamping out racism in society.

Hopefully this will act as a real deterrent for anyone else thinking they can chant and abuse at will.

We all stand with Kyogo.

“He cannot be for real!” – Listen to Mark Wilson’s reaction to Sevco fans incredible moonhowling Celtic conspiracies

As far as calls to Clyde 1 Superscoreboard go this call has to be up there with one of the best of all time.

Five minutes of absolute slavering hate for a club from a guy who ‘doesn’t want to talk about Celtic’.

Step up Jimmy. Have a listen to this:

There are just many, many things wrong with that whole conversation that the slavvering Jimmy just could not comprehend.

Not happy with being proved wrong about Celtic’s ‘influence’ in the SPFL board or the fact that ten other clubs voted for the winter shut down he also claimed that Celtic would try and con FIFA by claiming Kyogo’s injury is not as bad as first feared.

There is a deep rooted problem within a certain faction of their fanbase that whenever they drop points it seems to bring out the loonies in their support.

You can be sure there will be more of these guys presenting themselves over the next few days.

“The positives? Aw God” – The pain of Scott Brown prompted this hilarious Rangers Radio response

Man I could get a whole week of content from Scott Brown.

And he’s not even playing for us.

One thing is for sure. He has destroyed them. Has them on toast.

Brown’s s**thousery has really broke the Rangers fans to such an extent that when one called Rangers Radio he clearly had a few shandies.

As the presenter asked the caller to point out the positives from the Aberdeen game, the guy said, “The positives? Aw God.

That’s a good question mate. I’ve got to say my son.

He drank a bottle of brandy. I just poured him into a taxi.”

Have a listen below (23m 30s).

Scott Brown has really broken their fans. Even in the red of Aberdeen, he is still living rent free in their heads.

The pain is incredible. The laughter? Amazing.

“There’s a feeling that there’s a decent chance it’ll happen” – Portuguese journalist’s worrying Jota update

Jota to Celtic. It has the potential of turning into another Paddy Roberts hasn’t it!

Right that’s enough of that!

But what is the state of play regarding Celtic sealing the deal to get the Portuguese winger to Paradise permanently?

And will it happen anytime soon?

It’s in the balance according to Portuguese journalist Alex Goncalves:

Jota has been a revelation since joining the Hoops on deadline day and Goncalves reckons the permanent deal could have been done a lot easier if it wasn’t for one major development at Benfica this season:

Jorge Jesus was sacked by The Eagles just before the New Year and the general feeling is that had he remained in charge, the likelihood of Jota ever returning to Benfica was extremely small.

Now that the managerial position has changed, has Jota’s mind?

Celtic fans will certainly hope not.

Aberdeen fan’s Scott Brown tweet prompts unbelievable Alex Rae comparison and brilliant EBT response

Yeah. You read it right.

There was genuinely no other way to put the headline.

Well, that’s not strictly true. I could have put “Kid on Sevco fan gets sectioned for f**kwittery” but I would probably have needed to sack myself!

The Aberdeen fans are loving Scott Brown. Hell, we all are.

And going by this tweet, this guy REALLY loves him.

But the tweet prompted a really weird response from this guy and without giving anything away, have a read at this thread:

It’s incredible that in England, they measure a player on how they did in their soulless league.

Brown is a legend of the Scottish game. I bet he would rather have his cupboard full of medals than Alex Rae’s sideboard drawer stuffed with brown envelopes……..
