Journalist embarrasses himself on social media after Celtic make first summer signing

I’ve never understood why journalists get themselves involved in this kind of nonsense. After Celtic signed Odin Thiago Holm yesterday, almost immediately Ewan Murray felt the need to criticise the club.

For those that are unfamiliar with Murray, he’s a golf reporter that supports Heart but continually tweets negativity about Celtic.

His nonsense on Twitter knows no bounds. In fact, he tweets more about Celtic than his own club. Many would assume that he has an anti-Celtic agenda but then, those that think that are just paranoid, right?

Anyway, after Celtic invested £2.5m on Holm, Murray came away with this nonsense:


Firstly, as Ewan well knows, if youth players are not good enough, they don’t get to play for Celtic. Those that are, do.

It’s a simple concept that he seems to miss. Another simple concept, no fact, even is that Celtoc have lost their real top talents tithe likes of Liverpool and Bayern Munich.

Again, not Celtic’s fault. When clubs of this ilk come calling then it’s really difficult to say no. Especially with the promise of playing in the English Premier League or the Bundesliga.

Murray’s obsession with all things Celtic is strange to say the least. I think he should just stick to golf because when he talks about football, he just makes a Tit-elist of himself.


Journalist calls out Ange Postecoglou’s “flannel” after Celtic exit

In the coming days, this sort of stuff will start to come out. Journalist’s who were afraid to call out Ange Postecoglou while he was here as the Celtic manager will suddenly find the balls to do so now that he’s out the country.

And, to be honest, I’m not surprised Ewan Murray was the first. The Hearts supporting journalist with a clear anti-Celtic agenda never fails to put the boot into the club whenever he gets the chance.

In fact, he tweets more about Celtic than he does about his own club. Make of that what you will.

And no sooner is Ange out the door, Murray’s brave pills start to kick in.

Murray tweeted, “I’m a big admirer of Ange Postecoglou’s work and style… but you’d like to think Celtic supporters are more than a little irked by the utter flannel he came out with in the lead up to his exit.”

Now, there’s no denying that Ange was being “coy” regarding his links to Spurs, but what exactly was the flannel Murray is talking about? And why is he so upset?

What’s it got to do with him? He’s not emotionally invested in the club like we are. What right dies he have to call out the former Celtic boss.

Because it gives him a reason to have a pop at anything Celtic that’s why. Murray should stick to golf.

Or maybe not. Because he took a swing here and he missed.
