SFA might be wise to call off next Rangers vs Celtic match, writes Bill Leckie
Three months ago, the Belgian was just about being tolerated by a Celtic support who would happily have swapped him for a bag of balloons and some coloured pencils. On one side, the player and his agent, talking about broken promises when it appears blindingly obvious that the only example of this on show is that of an employee refusing to turn up for work. On the other, a board and management whose inability to sing off the same hymn sheet on recruitment has edged them closer and closer to where they find themselves this morning — on the brink of elimination from the Champions League qualifiers and with their air of domestic invincibility slowly evaporating. Their manager Steve Bruce took him to dinner, put him up in a nice hotel for a couple of days and moved heaven and earth to sell the place to him. Yet they had the humility to go out of their way to convince a transfer target that they were right for them. The Ivorian was a little boy lost. Jack Hendry was intimidated all day by Steven Naismith. Scott Sinclair did nothing. Jonny Hayes did less. Jozo Simunovic lacks concentration.
Bill Leckie is a Scottish Sports journalist and broadcaster who currently writes for the Scottish edition of The Sun newspaper. The nomination was withdrawn following criticisms from trans campaigners who objected to articles Leckie has written mocking a bingo night for drag queens and arguing against taxpayer-funded gender reassignment surgery for prisoners. He grew up in the Foxbar area and was a childhood fan of local team St. Mirren as explained in his book Penthouse and Pavement , a critique on Scottish football and its inequities as he saw them.
