Have you been living in a cave? The OF's MO when it comes to signing up other Scottish team's best players is typically:

 

Unsettle player with placed press stories (ie tapping up via the papers) along with probably other ways of tapping up (through Rangers players on international get togethers for example)

Make a derisory bid (sometimes they don't even bother offering money to a club)

Sit back and wait for the player to agitate for a move or the player's agent to start demanding more money from their current club etc

The papers? 😂 Which are read by about 5% of the population. 

 

Utter paranoid nonsense and more excuse making. If Hearts get beat on Saturday it will be because we were crap as usual in Glasgow, not because some journalist printed a story (which the player won't read) saying Souttar could be a potential target.

For balance, the Sun are reporting Morelos to Newcastle.

 

Shocking attempt to put the player off his game for the weekend?

It's tinfoil hat stuff. Some wee journalist sitting there thinking "how can I put John Souttar off his game this weekend"? 🤔 "I know, I'll ask the editor if I can put a story in about him joining Rangers" 

 

Do you honestly think that happens? 

 

Yup I very much reckon it's part of the recipe/business model.  There will be a minimum space every day that must be covered relating to Celtic and to Rangers, if it's a slow news day they will need to find an angle - unfortunately for us that often involves this kind of stuff, it is after all an easy way to fill a page. Whether or not it's deliberate, who knows?

So he's saying that Souttar would leave Hearts for Rangers knowing he would a bench warmer, because he's not as good as any of the Rangers' central defenders? 

Not a very encouraging move for John to further his career.

If John signed a wee extension with us, with a release clause, and proved himself reliably fit next season, he could do a whole lot better than Rangers. 

I don't think that there would be any Hearts fan who wouldn't wish him all the best when he did move on, if he stayed a wee while longer.

 

Alex Mcleish has been talking p15h for years. Worse than that he's been incoherent for years, even while he was manager of Scotland, he only got that job because of his connections with the Scottish Football Establishment (SFE), prominent among whom is The Rangers Football club (formerly known as Sevco, formerly known as Rangers Football club). it would be interesting to know what the fee is for such an 'interview'.

Or Morelos will score four trying to impress Newcastle scouts.

I happen to know exactly how Rangers and Celtic use certain journalists.

Big deal. No matter what they write it will have absolutely no bearing on the outcome of the match.

I was talking about how the OF uses the media to indirectly tap up and unsettle players, which absolutely does affect players (the tapping up).

Is it just the OF that do it? No other club is guilty of it? You really need to get over your OF obsession and stop blaming them for everything. Yes, there's plenty to have a go at them for, but this tapping up players is not solely an OF thing. It's being going on at every club since football was invented.

What happened to the DR Celtic supporting journos who went after the Heart and Hand Rangers boys then were found to be spouting their own sectarian drivel on their own twitter accounts?

Honestly as a Rangers supporter I laughed at this post, but you have been spot on as I see the Daily Record doing an interview with Alex McLeish saying  that the lad would jump at the chance to sign for Rangers 😁

We wouldn't happen to be playing them this weekend would we 😂. Top reporting from DR btw - shows how much they've actually looked into Souttar when they're saying he was out with a serious ankle injury. 

 

Look out for "Celtic offering Gordon a pre-contract in January" rumours next month since we've got Celtic at home on 2 Dec. 

 

Happens every time we're about to play one of them.

Looks, and sounds, like a pished auld jakie.

 

Someone who cannot fathom that there is more to life than Rangers Football Club.

It's reported on English BBC gossip section. Stoke, Villa and Spurs are all looking at Souttar. 

 

Harry Souttar.... same source quoted as the Scottish media.

Souttar should not sign for them or their unwashed brethren. Soapy if he has any sense should commit to us after we stood by him through his injuries. Any player who is a threat usually gets signed to warm the bench and is ultimately loaned out to some shitey English league 1 side for them to make a profit. Its the Glasgow way.

Laughed my arse off reading that!


When I read the headline, I was ready to have a massive rant, but that is a genuinely hilarious article 👏

That's a Belter. As Homer would say, "it's funny because it's true". 

 

I think Souttar will sign a contract extension with us and be away within a year. 

 

If he doesn't, and buggers off on a cheap then I'll be annoyed but so be it, I feel confident (given this summers dealings) that Joe and his team (along with the manager) could get a suitable replacement brought in.

I was talking to my auld man about this just yesterday. OF have done this for over 40 years. If the Scottish media stopped the west coast rhetoric and really got behind teams who make a fresh challenge, like what the English press did with Leicester, then we'd see better journalism and fairer reporting. Instead we get papers indirectly touting other clubs top players to the OF. I've already seen stories why rangers should sign Gordon and Soapy. Also Beni could do a job a Celtic. I don't think the lad came to Scotland to keep the bench warm.
