Dermot the Suit

I’ve thought long and hard about posting this since I first read about a certain monopoly man’s comments last night. With the feel good factor about celtic just now I’ve wondered what will be the point in bringing something which I feel as negative to the table whilst we bask in celebrating Tuesday’s tremendous win.

With that though I think it’s important to discuss why Dermot Desmond has come out with such a statement right after such a historical win.

A few quotes from our shareholder…

“Rangers are a fantastic club with a great history.” – GREAT History? Really? What’s great about an ongoing policy of not signing players from YOUR country Dermot?

“every Old Firm match” – Ohhhh C’mon – No Guilt By Association please.

I’m very much of the opinion that the suits within our club have and always will be on a different level to us supporters. Whilst the everyday fan grafts, scrimps to enjoy a Celtic game these suits are on a different level and when yer man Dermot feels to need to glorify Rangers / SevCo it’s clear those that earn the crust from the club are way way different.

Why did Dermot say the things he has? Why could he not just respond to the necessary questions with a “Speak about Celtic, No Other club” type comment?

It truly baffles me why he sought the need to discuss the 3rd division team right after a remarkable achievement by Neil Lennon and the team.

Is this a clear sign that whenever the motions restart to get SevCo up the league’s that we’ll (Celtic PLC) one of the main drivers behind it?

Discuss.

  1. The fact is, there are drama queens everywhere, some of them are nutters, some of them read the shit written by the MSM nutters and believe it.

    If he doesn’t answer the question, he might read about his refusal to answer questions about bla bla bla and the insinuation that bla bla bla, if he answers by saying this that and the next thing about whoever, he or his family might end up in danger by said nutters, does he care if a soundbite from him hits a website for a day or two, maybe not, maybe he now just wants a simple life.

    I like to keep things simple, I like to keep life simple, for us at the moment, everything has worked out peachy, hooray, why does everything always have to turn into an issue, a reason to attack someone or to cause unrest, why do we care when, just now, touch wood, shit’s good?

    Maybe he just said something, maybe he has no agenda, maybe I’m glad he’s one of our suits as opposed to the Glaziers, or Green, I bet Lennon is.

    Why are we starting an argument here on speculation where we can simply put up a nothing to see here sign, move on, it’s mince n tatties for tea, my sock drawer needs a bit of attention.

    More posts on that magnificent achievement, I’ve had a right good couple of days reading match reports, looking up the prize money, dreaming about heading to Barcelona just to soak it up, considering a Europa cup run if the top 2 isn’t to be, trying no to count my chickens.

    1. Totally agree BHOYAZOID, why should give MSM bone to go crazy over?,was disappointed with certain comments though,as mentioned in post.IMHO I think the Celtic board playing a blinder,Lawell saying nothing,just hope our lawyers are on the ball though.YNWA

  3. Desmond is a businessman, money is his priority, it suits his agenda to perpetuate the ‘old firm’ narrative spouted by the msm.

  5. Like it or not, the two clubs were/are inextricably linked as far as the outside world goes. Even right up till Rangers lost their SPL place the two clubs were in cahoots with regards TV money and voting structure. In the long term, the ‘suits’ will seek a similar monopoly, as it’s good for business. There is also an element of being statesman-like in Desmond’s statement. Why kick a dog when it’s down? By taking the moral high ground by praising Rangers and not reaching out to our lowest denominator Desmond has put the ball back into Green’s court. I await Green’s next statement, which will, no doubt, contrast sharply with the approach taken by Desmond and strengthen opinions about his unsuitability to be in the West of Scotland never mind in charge of an institution that seemingly needs the support of bigots to prosper. In conclusion, I applaud Desmond for being conciliatory rather than confrontational. We know the position of strength our club is in at present, especially in relation to our biggest rivals, whatever they’re called this week, month, year. They’ll be back one day though, and we’ll be ready.

  7. Honestly I was thinking the same thing but at the end of the day he is only telling the camera’s what they want to hear. I think your comment about the SUITS at our club is a bit OTT also. To be honest without his backing where would we be. And if your mentioning Lawell as one of those suits our club has a lot to be thankful for that guy has steadied the ship for many a season now. So to be honest with you Desmond played it well the same way we played it well when during the whole who will vote yes and who will vote no saga we stayed silent. And politely voted No like everyone else. Why should we give people like that ORC Traynor the ammunition to print shite. Desmond is a lifelong Celtic fan who attracts the money and investment

  9. DD is a good man who has done well by Celtic over the years. Why should it be an issue when he responds to questions put to him with dignified answers?
    I for one am happy with his response! (not that I agree)
    Do we want to give the media and “the rangers” fans, ammunition to call into question our integrity by stoking the fire of bigotry?
    I will bet they hate the comments made by DD, no doubt they were hoping for some derogatory comment towards them to justify their bitterness & hatred towards Celtic FC and the rest of Scottish football, well they were sorely disappointed.
    Also, do you think a public opinion would be the same as a private one?

  11. I cannot believe that some people are saying that his comments are OK. This individual has a ridiculous amount of millions of pounds to his name but wouldnt buy a Celtic fan a cup of tea never mind a player or two. This individual has used the Celtic name and brand for his own devices for years. This individual refuses to turn up for shareholder meetings because he is getting his tash trimmed. This individual couldnt spell Celtic never mind pretend to be a supporter. This individual has rarely publicly commented on anything Celtic and is usually far too clever to be found answering these sorts of questions. He has publicly said that he is willing to sell his shareholding on our club and has reached this decision because he now accepts that we will never be allowed to enter the EPL and he cant make even more millions by selling our shares at a major profit.
    I would suggest Dermot that you fade into the background you came from and go back to your plan of how to take your millions with you when you depart this mortal world of ours.
