“Celtic toil to get job done,” reckons ghost writer for Graeme Souness’ and David Weir’s autobiographies

This guy…Sunday Times hack, who wrote the match report from Celtic Park yesterday afternoon..on his twitter handle states that he’s the ghost-writer for a few football biographies…in his own words:

“Scottish Football Correspondent for The Sunday Times among other things, ghost writer for Graeme Souness’ and David Weir’s autobiographies” he stated. This was his initial thoughts on Celtic beating St Johnstone 2-0 yesterday….

Here’s how he saw the match yesterday at Celtic Park…

Feedback – “I would implore you to seek out some statistics on Carl Starfelt yesterday and then maybe reassess your quite frankly baseless opinion, you wonder why your industry is dying.”

At what point did Starfelt look shake yesterday? Where you actually there?

“Starfelt was excellent again yesterday you dunce.”

“Lol. Starfelt was terrific today.”

“As a man famously used to say on Radio Clyde , “ were you at the game today caller “ that’s a “match report “ done sitting on the couch after watching the highly impartial sport scene highlights.

“Hi Douglas. Can you tell us all who won the penalty? That essentially sealed the 3 points? Did starfelt produce his best numbers for a game so far in this game also? Appears you’ve had a mare here.”

“Think you watched a different game from most of us.”

“Douglas, what game were you at?”

Maybe he shared in their EBT payouts !

  1. We don’t care what the animals say what the hell do we care.
    Let them write and say what they want. We know that is one of the fixtures last season’s team would have dropped points and we comfortably won 2 0.with us restricting st johnstone to 0 scoring chances and throw in they should have been down to ten men i will gladly take a 2 0 win
