The great Pedro revolution is well and truly under way, with the Sevco manager bringing into the new club his first two signings.
With a reputed war chest of £30M from his philanthropic chairman, Dave King, sitting largely untouched, the Portuguese gaffer chose to ignore the many player who would cost money and stick to the tried and tested transfer policy of his predecessor.
And like the Magic Hat before him, the signing of ‘oldie’ fellow Portuguese defender, Bruno Alves from Sardinian cracks Cagliari and ‘freebie’ former Aberdeen captain Ryan Jack, means the new club have yet to spend any money on transfer fees.
Despite the aforementioned King telling the Gullibears he would do ‘whatever it takes’ to topple Celtic from their lofty heights.
To be fair to the bold Pedro, this strategy worked so well for the Ibrokes club last season, they managed to finish third in a so-called two horse race!
And right on cue, the rank and file silly Billys are lapping up their new signings, like they always do. Such is their stupidity, they are already issuing the usual ‘Rangers (IL) are coming’, pish, that you wonder if even they REALLY believe it.
Alves, at 35 has a decent pedigree but is in the twilight of his career, Cagliari shipped 76 goals with him in their defence, and he won’t fancy facing a hungry young Moussa Dembele, or a Leigh Griffiths putting him through his paces.
Where as Jack knows the Scottish game but hasn’t really set the heather on fire.Neither would get anywhere near the InVIncibles team, so from that perspective, nothing has changed.
So normal service has resumed, the Sevies keep spouting, and Celtic keep winning. Here’s to number SEVEN!
