There's definitely something new in the Scottish press these days...

"Celtic have been rocked with the breaking news a glut of clubs want Odsonne Edouard this January for a reported £30M, while Neil Lennon is wanted by a pile of suitors.

The shocker is set to test Celtic board’s resistance as their star player and manager gets linked out yet again with a pile of suitors ready to fight for their signatures...."

Sound familiar?

No? That’s because unlike Rangers’ Alfredo Morelos and Steven Gerrard, there is no agenda to wanting rid of Celtic’s star striker or manager, to securing the release of their most potent player and the man who leads it. So we don’t see any stories about a clutch of PL or European sides seeking Edouard or Lennon, not because there strictly aren't (we’re no fools, Edouard is a good player, not so sure about the manager), but because a Celtic-driven agenda in the Scottish press clearly wants Morelos and Gerrard gone.

They’re the biggest threat to the quadruple treble, and if Rangers do win the Betfred next month, the biggest threat to stopping 9IAR.

And a Celtic-minded press and governing body doesn’t want to see the Colombian in a Rangers shirt any longer or Stevie in the dugout, so the stories saturate about their departure, while Celtic’s own men are left completely alone in peace by comparison.

Of course, this is not to say there have NEVER been stories, there have – but not with the frequency or intensity of the ones seemingly desperate for Morelos and Stevie G to move on.

Either way, for his part Morelos’ survives every transfer window and Stevie says the Colombian won’t go anywhere in the next one either.

And that goes for himself too.
