Once again today we’re seeing headlines littered with ‘observations’ by Celtic minded people on Rangers situations, Rangers players, and Ibrox in general, with this morning’s turn being Kenny Dalglish, admittedly a fine player back in his day, condemning Alfredo Morelos and telling Rangers we won’t get any decent sides or bids interested in him.
That’s nice of Sir Kenny isn’t it, telling Rangers fans, Rangers and a club and Alfredo Morelos what his future holds for him.
And spare us the ‘well he’s not exactly wrong is he’ handwringing patter, where some of our fans appear keen to take digs at our own players and will use the word of Celtic men to do it.
We are not Morelos’ biggest fans here on Ibrox Noise, preferring Antonio Colak by a mile, but we will defend the Buffalo against criticism from Celtic people till the day we die, because taking their word is absolutely irrelevant.
They can praise our club if they want, we won’t much care, but if (and when) they criticise, we REALLY won’t care and we’ll always have our players’ and our clubs’ back against anyone of a green and white persuasion taking a dig.
So forgive us if we’ll not just join in patent attacks from Parkhead at our players – we will defend them, and if Morelos remains one of us, and doesn’t leave in January, we will back him against anyone from the east who wishes to snipe at him.
We find it intolerable that Celtic people get their word into the press about our players, and take snide jibes at them in order to gain attention – Dalglish may be respected, but end of the day he’s a Celt, and any criticism from them at our club is not worthy of our attention.
If you’re a Rangers fan and you take it seriously, you might wish to reassess what it means to be a Rangers fan.
Dalglish can keep his thoughts to himself, or better yet, he can talk about his own clubs (quite a few of them in fairness). Because we’re not interested in what he or any other green and white thinks of us.
