Dermot Desmond’S Comments on Sevco

Like a lot of you I seen the interview on TV last night with DD and heard his patter on Zombi fc. Now there seems to be a lot of anger amongst the support about his comments like “Scottish football needs Rangers and their history”. He was talking bollocks and he knows it. Basically he was playing to the gallery of low brow Scottish Hacks.

Now as you know I don’t buy the rags so I don’t know what they have written today but I’ll take a guess. It will be along the lines of ‘Celtic Supremo Say’s Scottish Football Needs Gers” and the Laptop Loyal will be lapping it up. My guess is that DD could not give a flying feck about Zombi FC. Now this is a guy who is on the phone to Lenny 2 or 3 times a week, do you not think they have both been privately laughing their heads off at the state they are in?

Now if they were to ask me the same questions I would tell them I don’t give a feck but I don’t have the luxury of being the major shareholder in Scotland’s biggest club so they would just label me an internet bampot and move on.

If DD had came out last night and said “I don’t care about them” you can bet yer bottom dollar that the papers today would be filled with all kinds of crap about DD being full of hatred, egotistical, stirring up trouble and attacking poor Rangers. .

Now Charlie Green has been coming away with all sorts of off the wall crap for months now and to everyone outside Rangers and even some of my Rangers supporting mates have just seen the guy as a circus act, the only difference being the Laptop Loyal have lapped it up and helped create a siege mentality around the 3rd division minnows.

When you look at the bigger picture all he done was make the right noises so the monkey’s could applaud, he basically threw them a Banana and their lapping it up.

What you got to remember is DD is a very shrewd man he’s steered his major assets through an economic collapse while Mr Whyte is going bankrupt with Mr Murray not far behind him and as things stand this ‘New Rangers’ will be lucky to make it till February 2013.

So on this occasion I’m going to cut DD a bit of slack. Looking forward to your opinions on this, could be interesting 🙂

Hail, Hail

  1. Path to least resistance, this is what you want to hear, there is nothing to be gained from a sly dig at them, leave me alone I’m trying to play golf!

    Don’t care what noises any of them make about us. Bring on the Barca!

  3. From a commercial point of view, he’s right, Celtic will miss Rangers. An extra tenner on the tickets for full houses twice a season will be missed.

    However as the majority of his own clubs fanbase don’t consider the economic argument top of the agenda, DD would have been better advised to decline the invitation to comment. In my humble opinion.

  5. He is entitled to his opinion, just because it does not tally with other peoples opinions doesn’t make him bad or mad

  7. Think as fans we have to trust the people that run the club (Lawell & DD), not saying we should follow them blindly but some fans just seem to want to create more drama than is needed, & think its time we should question their motives as much as DD or Lawell’s..

  9. No one connected to Celtic should ever say the words ‘great institution’ or ‘fine history’ when talking about Bigot FC. That is tantamount to condoning the sectarian history of the UK’s only openly sectarian football club, he is a very intelligent man and could have blathered his way through the interview without uttering a single word in praise of these bigots. Celtic fans throughout our genuinely great history, with our very real tradition of openly welcoming people of all creeds and none to our club have pointed out time and again that Rangers ‘tradition’ is merely another word for Bigotry. A man in his position should know that and also should be well aware of how his words will be used against him and subsequently ‘for’ them.

    Therefor I cannot agree with the above article at all.

    1. Agreed 100%. It’s like waxing lyrical about the proud traditions of the KKK..!! I’m sick of hearing about the Zombie’s “traditions” and their being a “great institution”.
      As Hingmae says, DD could easily have thrown the media puppets a bone without basically condoning the Zombie’s sectarian policies.

  11. Do you not think, that THEM listening to Dermot Desmond,will just make THEM all the more FRUSTRATED,? I certainly do! and How many of THEM Will Think that a Billionaire, Celtic,s biggest investor,and Especially an IRISHMAN, was Genuine? I could tell you, NONE! Dermot Knows, we will not have this New team beside us for at least 3 or 4 year, at least. Also the timing of his comments could not have been better,just after a victory in The Big Cup ,and another 1,000,000 Euros in the kitty. Am LUVIN THIS!

  13. I have to say that I have mixed feelings. I have my suspicions that DD was trying to play the trump card and may have misjudged his hand. He might have been playing the MSM game, pretending to offer support for The Rangers but a lot of his words were, for me anyhow, ill-chosen. However, I am not, nor can I be, inside the man’s head so I will refrain from a final judgement and I too will “cut DD a bit of slack”. I will add, though, that he and others at Celtic should be preparing themselves for the final conflict in which it is paramount that they stop towing lines and have the courage of the convictions that we are prepared to hang for the moment on that bit of slack we talk about.

  15. Celtic or should I say Dermot Desmond wanted Rangers in the SPL. That’s what was being pushed for behind the scenes until the other clubs were forced by their fans to come out and state they would be voting against Rangers and then Celtic had to vote that way too. That’s why they never said anything. Nothing to do with ‘playing a blinder’ or ‘keeping their cards close to their chest’. And on this occasion DD isn’t ‘playing to the gallery’ as this blog claims. Talk about having your head in the sand.

  17. What I know of DD he is an independent thinker and is taking the moral high ground…ie nothing he says or any Celtic director says will be construed as being remotely smug…however I think he was ill advised this time to comment on them as being somehow an institution to be respected…or missed.

  19. Whether you think DD was playing a game, or inferring some obtuse point or other, or even if you think the Zombies will be ‘pure ragin’ at his remarks isn’t really the issue.

    The point is: NO ONE from Celtic should EVER make a remark that even implies they are comfortable with Rangers ‘traditions’ never mind suggest, to a media outlet, that they have any kind of admiration for their so called traditions.

    Have we ever been comfortable with their signing policy, their song sheet, the quintessential anti-Irish racism they espouse, the hubris, the orange strip they will be wearing sometime soon on a playingfield near you…

    In this country remarks about Rangers are scrutinized, twisted, used and abused by the media to suit their agenda and as we all know ‘their’ agenda is not ours.
