It’s a new era at Ibrox, one we are all incredibly excited to witness and watch as new signings appear under a megastar in Steven Gerrard. However we cannot help but be a little amused by the constant references in the press of Celtic men who feel sorry for our ex-manager.
The latest one is Steve Kean, on top of a bunch of others including Neil Lennon, and the complete lack of sympathy from their Rangers’ counterparts speaks volumes for the agenda in the Scottish press, and the utterly appalling nature of the decision to make him permanent manager.
I know I know, it’s in the past, it’s about the Stevie Ger Time now – absolutely, it is, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to sit idly by as an evident pro-Celtic agenda continues to defend the man despite him admitting he’s entirely oriented towards Parkhead. While in the job, I hasten to add.
Sure, for a while it went absurdly well – February actually had most of us buying into this guy. Including us. But the wheels came off spectacularly and now we have a new era to look forward to.
But we will not forget the past, nor, indeed, are we being allowed to as Celtic man after Celtic man comes out in the press telling us how they feel for him and how the club treated him terribly. Really? The club that took HIS side over the Miller and Wallace fiasco?
He was hung out to dry a little as caretaker, we admit that – but as full manager on a better wage – that’s his job! His job is to take the flak for the club and the squad – them’s the rules I’m afraid.
Stevie Gerrard too will live and die by his own sword, and we sure hope it’s the former, but all managers have to take it on the chin when the brown stuff hits the fan.
And the complete absence in the press of any Rangers men giving the guy ‘sympathy’ indicates two things:
The agenda in the press to keep the Celtic angle going, and the fact no Rangers men have any sympathy for him in the first place.
He was told his Auchenhowie job was there for him if he wanted to return, but Stevie Ger had other ideas and appointed my colleague Richard’s proposal Michael Beale as the new youth coach. We utterly endorse this. We didn’t want the ex-guy back at Ibrox at all.
And we foresee an exciting and bright future under Stevie – but we remain amused as to the tabloid obsession over our ex.
