Paul Parker has made a name for himself this morning by suggesting Scott McTominay, who is out of the picture now at Manchester United, isn’t good enough for Celtic but is at least as good as Nicolas Raskin, Ryan Jack and Todd Cantwell and he’d be a good addition for Rangers.
In short, Parker thinks a pretty rotten Celtic, and let’s face it, they are, are better than McTominay, but he’s better than what Rangers have.
Let’s look at this objectively – Raskin, Jack and Cantwell – the best midfield in the country, with John Lundstram not even able to get a look in right now, and likewise Finland’s Glen Kamara.
Meanwhile Celtic’s midfield ‘boasts’ McGregor, Mooy and Hatate, one of whom is 87 years old and has only just hit some form in the last 12 minutes.
Do we sound misguided? Possibly. But we would also rather morons down south keep us out of discussions about players we’re not interested in especially if it’s at the expense of making a cheap dig at us.
He clearly said this for attention – McTominay isn’t a player we have any interest in, given we have a wealth of quality options in midfield, but the reality is he’s a Scotland international with a market value of around £30M so to suggest he’s not good enough for any team (whoever they are) in the Scottish Premiership is literally hilarious.
It’s just pro-Celtic anti-Rangers propaganda. ‘This £30M Man Utd star isn’t good enough for Celtic, but he’d be great at Rangers’.
Pipe down Paul! The guy is a decent player, and he’d be an asset to any side in Scotland. To make a ridiculous claim that Celtic are too good for him is absurd and hints that he thinks Celtic are even better than Manchester United.
Have you ever heard such guff:
You have to laugh.
