We had to laugh at infamous Scottish red top the DR’s take on the numbers we published yesterday, in which we reported how Ryan Kent is the number one in the Scottish Premiership for chances created.
DR? Apparently they put Jota at number one for the same thing, despite the fact that the research and stats and numbers clearly show Kent at the top.
It’s funny, regardless of the numbers presented in front of their faces, the red top insists on outright ‘misleading’ about what they are demonstrating, going for the abstract ‘creator rating’ score which is an amalgamation rather than a hard stat.
No, 24-year-old Robbie Hanratty, who looks about 15 incidentally, may just have a slight veering towards things Parkhead as he penned the piece which he claims shows Jota as number one:
Despite the most important part for a playmaker, chances created, being Kent’s domain, he’s rejected that and decided Jota’s fictional creator score means he’s number one, and then prattles on about other Celtic players and how great they are too.
It’s actually hilarious, that despite hard stats showing Kent’s 2.36 has him as the highest-performing playmaker in the Scottish Premiership, Jota is still ‘confirmed’ as number one!
Let us be clear – we are not dismissing the Portuguese or his ability – he’s one of their best players and one of the best in the league – but to actually dismiss the hard research and facts and actually show them while wording them in a way that suits your agenda is quite absurd.
This is a bit of a reason why you shouldn’t take tabloids too seriously at all and especially not those published in the Glasgow area…
