Unless you count the wee gap between the door and outer casing of the fridge at the corporate mortuary. They should be able to spot them because they will look just like Rangers. Or indeed to its lame-arsed tribute act.
Meanwhile, Celtic would play in the Champions League and cruise towards six-in-a-row without casting so much as a pitying glance across the city. He suggested that hyping up the rivalry would mean that Sevco keeps feeling relevant — although to an ever-diminishing degree — and would supply a sympathetic local media with vacuous stories such as this one until the money finally runs out.
What my study shows is that this has not always been the case. If this trend continues, you can forget about any ridiculous pretence of there being an Old Firm. If its fans in the mainstream media are no longer interested in the remote possibility of Sevco absolutely hammering Celtic, this will hurt their identification with Scottish football as being a worthwhile thing.
And if you think that article is ridiculous, take a look at this one…. Brendan Rodgers is consumed by an irrational determination to win football matches. Scottish press is losing it over their obsession with vague negative Celtic stories. With the heavyweight analysis of a fortune cookie, the Sunday Mail pulled out a pile of nonsense from a cobweb-covered filing cabinet, and peddled some mean-spirited pish about Celtic.
Forgive the Cheltenham talk, because this piece has absolutely nothing to do with Cheltenham, a lovely town in Gloucestershire which hosts horse racing. I just thought I would mention Cheltenham. Because it has been on the telly recently. Clearly it is time to give it a rest. You bet! In all honesty, it was always going to vanish once it was rumbled by discerning readers with an Internet connection. And almost everyone else too. Just for a laugh. Mistakes are being made. The corgis had a good yap about it too, and have made themselves available to discuss the game on SSB this week, on the basis that they will offer more insight than the usual pundits.
The Queen immediately called for a map of Glasgow and a pad of paper to begin making plans for a state celebration of the winning of this momentous point. First up would be an open-top unicorn parade through the city centre. A gun salute would be fired from the BDO offices. I understand The Queen has now, therefore, asked her military bands if they have any mime artists available to perform…. Her Majesty then thought about deploying tanks!
Having finally got through to someone in authority at Ibrox, and having assuring them that she really was The Queen and not Phil Mac Giolla Bhain doing an impression, the exchange went something like this…. Anything at all. We are so honoured that you want to recognise our amazing success. One does so love to have the public finances in order before sending in the Red Arrows.

rangers treble kings a tribute to a forgotten achievement Manual
In an absolutely shocking development, someone may have swore at a player at a football match in Glasgow today. We cannot have the beautiful game sullied in this manner. Fans around the world need to know that they can attend football matches without hearing swear words. We will be pressing for rule changes whereby teams will be expelled from football if fans do not offer regular compliments to opposition players.
Players in Scotland are used to the highest standards of fan behaviour, and usually hear comments or chants that consist solely of lines from Rabbie Burns, Shakespeare, or The Dave Clark Five. When asked what sort of punishment might be on the cards, our source asked if we had seen what happens to Alex in A Clockwork Orange.
Police Scotland have not asked for help with their inquiries. However, the Daily Record has taken it upon itself to splash a young ballgirl across its website and Twitter feeds. Seriously folks, what on Earth does the Record think it is playing at? NB For the avolidance if doubt, I would say the same about any outlet publishing something similar….
The Clumpany had completely forgotten about Jason Cundy until he popped up on my Twitter timeline recently. He was taking an extensive pop at Scottish football and Celtic for… well, I am not quite sure why…. I think they would be scrapping down the bottom [of the English Premier League]. Mid to bottom half is the best I could give them. They are a very similar level to Stoke, I think Stoke would end up beating them. He obviously has to create a programme which stimulates conversation.

It is ignorance really, with all due respect. The footballing world is more than the Premier League. Alan Brazil: Jason Cundy is just an ignorant balloon. I vaguely remember Mr Cundy attempting to kick a ball on a football pitch once upon a time, and for holding the rare distinction of seeming like an ex-pro before he had actually stopped playing. And sometimes he might say that various fans are deluded.

Here are just a few hilarious samples of his wisdom:. His return to Ashton Gate was not a great success. He was released by the Robins the following summer and played for Chippenham Town in the Western League before hanging up his boots. Ken Satchwell, was a very popular player in the late s and early sixties and scored 24 goals in 75 appearances for the club.
Ken passed away on Sunday night after a serious illness just a week after his 76th birthday. He was a Ricoh regular until recently and a popular supporter of the Former Players Association. Older City fans will remember Ken scoring four goals in a home win over Wrexham on Christmas Day — the last time City played a league game on the 25th December. The following day in the return at the Racecourse Ground Ken scored another two goals in a win to notch a Christmas double for the Bantams.
Born in Birmingham in , Ken was prodigious schoolboy player with Erdington Boys and played as an amateur for both Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers, playing regularly and scoring prolifically for the Villa youth team. When the time came for professional contracts Villa were reluctant and Ken started playing for works side SU Carburettors and scored over goals in the Birmingham Works League. When the Football League pointed out that he could only sign for one club he plumped for City.
He was an amateur when he made his debut on the left wing at Oldham in a Division Four game in August The following season Ken, although still a raw year old, became a regular, playing alongside journeyman striker Ray Straw as City came close to a second successive promotion.
Straw netted 20 goals and Ken 15, in 28 games, earning the nickname of Satch the Snatch. His eye for goal, quickness to move into the open space and his finishing ability give more promise of feats to come — and his improvement over the past couple of months has been little short of astonishing. I was on the treatment table at Highfield Road being treated by trainer Wilf Copping when someone walked in and told us Billy Frith had been sacked and Jimmy Hill was taking over.
Wilf was sacked too and had to clear all his gear out there and then. I never really got on with Jimmy and the club put me up for sale. He passed away in a Blackpool hospital at the age of Prior to the First Division days it was unusual for Coventry City to sign international players, especially England internationals. Don Howe, whose death at the age of 80 was reported this week, played a small part in the history of Coventry City, steering a poor team to First Division safety in the last season before the advent of the Premier League in Wolverhampton-born Don had an outstanding playing career as a full-back with West Bromwich Albion and later Arsenal, making over appearances and winning 23 caps for his country.
He left Highbury in the afterglow of that achievement to become manager at the Hawthorns but only succeeded in taking his former club down to Division Two. He returned to Highbury as coach under Terry Neill as Arsenal reached three successive FA Cup finals in the late s and successfully combined this role with being assistant to England managers Ron Greenwood and Bobby Robson before becoming Arsenal manager for two years in the mids.
Two months later after a bad run of results and contract wranglings Butcher was sacked and Don took over the reins on the understanding that the kitty was empty and there was no money to spend. Drab, dour football was the consequence, and although only one game in nine was lost, the run included four goal-less draws and saw only four goals scored.
The slow accumulation of points was enough to keep the threat of relegation at bay until mid-March, when City were overtaken by Sheffield United, Southampton and Tottenham, each of whom had put on a surge. Successive defeats by Tottenham and Arsenal meant that City would have to scrap for everything to survive. Deflected goals then cost them the points against both Notts County and Everton. On Easter Monday Lloyd McGrath was sent off in the televised clash with champions elect Leeds for deliberate handball, although TV replays suggested the ball had struck his knee and not his hand, and City lost again.
One of the worst Coventry City sides in their year top flight stay could afford to lose only so long as others beneath them were also losing. But Luton were stringing together a winning run, and beat Aston Villa in their penultimate game. It was just as well that City recorded their first home win since November, against doomed West Ham, for that set up a climactic final day at Villa Park. With the Sky Blues having a superior goal-difference, a draw was all they needed to survive. News that Luton were winning at Meadow Lane, coupled with a second Villa goal, scored by Dwight Yorke, put City in the bottom three for the first time all season.
The fans were almost resigned to relegation. Salvation came, not through a City fight-back, but in the shape of Loughborough University student Rob Matthews, who scored twice for Notts County to send Luton down. The idea was that Howe would retain responsibility for coaching and tactics and that the duo could repeat their success at Wimbledon.
But his record and style — not to mention his decision to sign Les Sealey who had bad-mouthed the club when leaving in on loan — had not endeared him to City fans. Howe, who had been suffering some heart problems, decided that the daily trip from his Hertfordshire home was too much, stepped down, and allowed Gould to recruit axed Bolton boss Phil Neal as his assistant. After leaving Coventry he was a member of the England set up under Terry Venables before his final job in , back at Arsenal, as youth team coach before retiring in He continued to pass on his advice to aspiring young coaches.
Don was unquestionably an outstanding club and national coach and respected by the top people in the game but he failed to achieve success as a club manager. In many ways he was similar to Dave Sexton, always happier in a tracksuit coaching than behind a desk or fielding questions at a press conference.
After the passing of Jimmy Hill last week it is another great loss to English football.

Jimmy Hill was a man of many talents and Coventry City and the City of Coventry benefited enormously from his time as manager and later chairman of the football club. In the s I was one of the hordes of Coventry and Warwickshire boys who followed our very own Pied Piper down a golden path to success. The five and a half years of his time as manager, from December to May , remains the most exciting and momentous era in the history of the club.
In a unique partnership with the go-ahead chairman Derrick Robins, he transformed Coventry City from an ailing Third Division side in a run-down stadium into the most progressive club in England that would grace the top flight for 34 years.
