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.
These major *Rangers podcast sites always are always bumping their gums on Twitter. Always.
And they are a far cry of how Celtic podcast site’s conduct themselves.
I have yet to see any Celtic podcast site behave the way Rangers Rabble or Heart & Hand do on twitter and, quite frankly, if I did see them carry on like those guys do, they would be blocked quicker than you can say ‘liquidation’.
This podcaster tried to take the moral high ground after the news that wee Alfie was set to miss the Glasgow Derby in February:
The problem with this is there is only one club that has invoked the postponement rule in Scotland. One.
And was it against the might of Celtic? Aberdeen maybe? Hearts perhaps?
Superscoreboard is brilliant when it comes to the pain of Govan.
Not only are they still unbeaten in the league, they are still four points clear.
But are they happy? Noooooo.
Ok, they’ve never had a penalty given against them in I don’t know how long or a red card in over two seasons. They got both in one game.
Has that tipped them over the edge? Bingo.
And it’s quite incredible.
In fact, I’ll go one further. It smacks of entitlement.
But as the fall out over their 1-1 draw at Aberdeen and as Scott Brown continues to consume the very fibre of their beings, this caller was superb.
Rather than just accept that these happen and ‘honest mistakes’ can happen to everyone, this one guy sifted through the annuls of the FIFA rule book to find something, ANYTHING, to show that his team had been cheated.
Have a listen:
I stopped at Andy Halliday because, well, you know why.
But it is stunning the amount of nonsense these guys come away with and it is strange though.
They can check through hundreds of pages of FIFA rules but when you ask them to Google ‘liquidation’ their fingers stop working. All eleven of them.
All winter break we have heard them bleat on about how Celtic s*at it from them as ten of the twelve SPFL clubs voted to bring the winter break forward to allow the possibility of crowds back into stadiums.
Rather weirdly, *Rangers fans were in favour of locking themselves out of seeing their team just to disagree with Celtic’s stance.
Think about THAT for a minute. A weird wee bunch.
But back to my original point. We s*at it.
We s*at it because of we were missing key players through injury.
And the latest one of how we s*at it because of the possibility of international call ups (even though Ange wasn’t interested in calling the game off) was another thing of beauty.
Well, all that seems to be forgotten about as the news that wee Alfie gets a Columbia call up filtered through their ranks, the calls for a postponement seem to have ramped up now.
Have a look:
These next three guys thinks we had a hand in Alfie’s call up!
Now it’s the SPFL’s fault……………………
This one is my favourite. Scott Arfield should have become Mystic Meg in his spare time!
The last two days have been really unkind to them!
