Sometimes you see a story and you need to check the date. Not because I think it’s been stolen from my site (I wish) but just in case I slipped into a coma and I’ve come too on April 1st.
Today, as some of you may well know saw Rangers* take on the Spanish Galactico’s of Real Madrid in a pre season friendly.
The Govan team eventually ran out 2-1 winners after coming from behind with goals from Sakala and Itten after Madrid went down to 10 men.
The Spaniards played a full strength team minus just a few first team players as Carlo Ancelotti decided to rest Coutois, Carvahal, Modric, Kroos, Mendy, Benzema and Hazard and a few others but apart from that, it was a full strength Galactico side.
Don’t get me wrong, it was still a decent result considering we were humiliated against West Ham but The Sun chose to run a story from what I can only imagine was a wind up tweet from a Real Madrid’s supporters club that Madrid should sign Ryan Kent INSTEAD of Mbappe.
You the type of tweet I’m talking about. When we beat Barcelona in a real competitive match in the Champions League against a full strength Barca side there was many pictures of Messi mocked up with him revealing a photo of Tony Watt under his shirt after he had scored.
And I was correct as the tweet was followed up with a secondary wind up tweet as shown above.
But the national newspaper ran the story anyway and it was a SERIOUS piece. Almost like it believed it was a serious suggestion.
Mbappe or Kent? What would it be? I’m sure Ancelotti is on the phone to Gerrard as we speak.
