Anyone who reads the Scottish football media during the transfer window will know that one of their most loved tropes is the ‘Rangers [sic]pip Celtic to [insert any player they sign]signature’.

Sam has given us a Google Challenge – search Luca Connell and Rangers there is plenty of articles linking the now young Celtic Star to the Ibrox club.

Forget total football, this is totalitarian football.

And while I’m not making light of genuine totalitarianism, this endeavour of the Scottish football media to upkeep the delusion that the Rangers (2012) are beating us to signings reeks of the kind of cognitive dissonance that you find in authoritarian and totalitarian systems.

Those who find this stuff fascinating will have known for a while that the media claim, repeated multiple different times by multiple different outlets (it was ubiquitous and has become accepted among the media and less discerning consumers), regarding Celtic losing out on Aribo to the Rangers (2012) was nonsense.

His name was Luca Connell.

The reason you won’t find any of this stuff regarding Connell or any signing made by Celtic is because, shock horror, there appears to be a leading core, an advanced guard if you will, of ‘journalists’ in Scotland who have an obvious and pathological dislike of Celtic and/or a conviction to constantly portray our club in a negative light – almost always to the benefit of the Rangers outfit, formed in you’ve guessed it, 2012.
