Despite much howling by those of a lunar disposition, Rangers Lite have not ‘splashed the cash’ to acquire Jamie Murphy. Most of those who railed against me chose to play the man ergo went straight to the sin bin. I not only informed my readers of the putative bid but I also revealed that Lite proposed making the first of three payments when season ticket returns for season 2018/19 had been banked. I add the caveat that Metro Bank might be forced to withdraw banking services should King remain as a director of this distressed corporate concern. I further add that Brighton will engage in a thorough credit check to establish whether Lite can be trusted to make staggered payments. As I revealed exclusively yesterday Tony Bloom was of a mind to demand the full fee up front. Murphy’s loan may be a short one.
BFDJ and Traynor’s Lickspittles made a complete arse of themselves. Murphy will now join on loan until such time as the Gullibillies stump up for another season of being also-rans. How embarrassing.
Common sense, which seems to be a scarce commodity at the SMSM, would have informed the lickspittles that any club that could not find £800,000 for a formal sit down with McInnes were not in a position to splash anything. Paying on the never-never is the norm at Ibrox.
Compare and contrast how a professional club does business. Compper has signed for Celtic for the fee that the Seagulls are demanding Lite pay for Murphy. There was no embarrassing loan deal in an attempt to save face. They have also signed Lewis Morgan for £300,000 from St. Mirren. The Morgan deal is reminiscent of the Scott Allan deal. Both players were the stand outs in Scotland’s second tier. Both players were from families who supported the club that formerly played at Ibrox. However it’s apparent to anyone other than the one-eyed bigots who follow the new club that Lite are not Rangers. They are a poor facsimile run by a lower class of criminal than was the case when Sir Bribe & Lie held sway. David Murray treated you to a decent glass of claret before picking your pocket, or a suitcase containing one million in crisp dollar bills.
Sir Bribe & Lie was the Bernie Madoff of Rangers. King is the Bernie Made-Off of Lite.
Players with ambition will always sign for Celtic. The lure of playing Champions League football and the possibility of a big money move to England will always trump wondering whether your next pay check will be your last as Lite inexorably folds. Celtic will add more quality to their squad.
The fact that Morgan formerly played for Rangers was not universally popular with the Gullibillies. Martin@foreverblue1690 opined on Twitter:
“Hope that Lewis Morgan’s family disown him. Turncoat fenian bastard.”
Martin also has a penchant for inviting the Pope to engage in sexual congress with himself and is fond of conflating child abuse with Celtic FC. He will probably consider it a badge of honour when I describe him as a Hun’s Hun, freshly minted in Phil Macgiollabhain’s ‘Incubator.’
In the final analysis a common chant by Celtic fans – your grandchildren will be Celtic fans – has more than a ring of truth to it. If ‘Sons of Ibrox‘ Allan and Morgan are representative one may not have to wait a generation for this eventuality.
