Ok, I will admit it.
I was shocked to learn that someone at Sevco is a grass!
The caravan decided to take a wee trip to Nevada, but someone couldn’t keep schtum about it.
Of course, the…err… “Exclusive” that there is something of an ethnic split in the Sevco dressing room was revealed to readers here back in June.
In the Herald today one intrepid chap told the world that at Sevco “…finances are ok again…”
Oh dear, oh dear…
There are elements of the Sevco story that must be like a Greek tragedy for The People.
Therefore, I think a few words from Aeschylus are appropriate at this juncture:
“There is no pain so great as the memory of joy in present grief.”
I don’t think it would surprise anyone now if Pedro decided to exit stage left from this farce.
Of course, he and his imported backroom team are all on three-year deals.
However, I’m sure that their payoffs will be no problem as the chap in the Herald today stated that finances were “ok”.
Dear reader, I don’t want to be a grass, but finances are anything but ok at Sevco.
What appeared in the Herald today was in the “off the radar” category.
In fact, it is an even better fable than the one about the caravan in Vegas being led by a clown.
Now, I’m not saying that the chap made this up and then passed it off as news because that would be a major allegation to make against any journalist.
I just don’t think that he has very good sources at Ibrox.
Must try harder…
Oh, and one other thing:
Last night for Celtic beat Anderlecht 3-0 in Belgium.
Now that is real and I’m more than ok about it.
Celtic’s first goal was of genuine Champions League quality.
Three touches from Ntcham to KT to Griff.
The pass from the young Frenchman was sublime and I love an early low cross driven with accuracy.
It is the sign of a proper football team.
The first time finish was deadly.
After that breakthrough, the biggest club in Scotland grew into the match.
Paddy Roberts was rewarded for his agile prescience when he pounced on some Sevco like defending from the home team.
The third goal from Scott Sinclair could prove crucial in the head to head calculations.
In the post-match interviews, the man from Antrim called it straight like the real professional he is.
The contrast between Celtic and Sevco is becoming crueller by the day.
For the avoidance of doubt, I’m ok with cruelty.
