The so called Scottish press

I’m sitting watching Celtic History on the old DVD format :). All the way through from Fergus McCann took over until Gordon Strachan won his 3rd title and had taken Celtic to the last 16 of the Champions League on two occasions the press in Scotland have been an utter disgrace.
Fergus was compared to Saddam Hussein, Wim was equated to the worst thing to hit Hiroshima since the atom bomb, Dr Joe who set up our scouting system was called ‘Dr Who’, Martin O’Neill was apparently leaving Celtic every month, Gordon Strachan was hated by the majority of the Celtic support and Neil Lennon was a loose cannon who brought trouble on himself. 
Everything Celtic have done over those years is discounted, trashed and played down. Ok it’s not a big surprise to any of us but the disrespect shown to our latest golden era is saddening.
So here we are in 2012 when it is now more or less a certainty that the other Glasgow club from Ibrox have cheated and corrupted the game in Scotland. We all now know that the Scottish press have been complicit in turning a blind eye to this corruption. So there are a few questions to ask.
Why do Celtic fans buy these publications or even visit their websites ? Why do Celtic fans listen to their ill informed ego stroking phone ins ?
Each to their own but I’ll stick to Celtic Fans media . 🙂
 
If nothing else Celtic have conducted themselves with DIGNITY and fair play.

  1. I agree wholegeartedly … the so called media have been complicit in the demise of rangers & are disingenious ( & thats being kind ) in regards celtics achievements , the very existance of our sport is hanging by a thread …. There are far more intelligible guys than me who could & maybe will be emphatic in the need to ” OUT ” the so called MSM , i for 1 being a mere layman will leave it @ that , BUT Ponder this will the media run with Thugs & Thieves front page exclusives & Catchphrase it maybe something along the lines of ” Frauds & Thieves ” When the inevitable hits not only the walls fan (s) But Yesireee the Brogues …. #Sport=FairPlay

  5. Jas I have to put my hand up here and confess I’m one of those who do visit their websites. I feel guilty for doing it, as my local priest would testify to if he was aloud to speak about my weekly visits. It’s addictive, you can’t help yourself, I also have a couple of hacks that I actually like to read, Richard Wilson at the Herald is a great young writer who hasn’t fallen into the media cesspit yet, his article’s are usually very ballanced and informative reading.
    I am trying but I think we all know that every now and again we have a wee peek at the latest revelations regarding the huns. My visits to their sites have decreased over the past year, at that is partly to do with sites like TCN as now I don’t have to trawl the internet looking for Celtic sites or new story’s ,almost everything I need is here. There are one or two other sites not on here that I visit regulary, one being the excellent Liam Conway http://liamconway.wordpress.com/ who covers a variety of other topics that supplement his mussings on football.
    So while I agree whole heartedly with your view Jas, we need to understand that our natural curiosity takes over when we’re on the internet and although the MSM in Scotland is largely against us, we as Celtic fans have the most inteligent online community that examines in forensic detail all the lies eminating from the laptop loyal, we now have the power that was once denied us and we are showing that we know how to use this new power.
