It’s always someone else to blame!

Managerless and rudderless Sevco can take comfort in the knowledge the cheerleading SMSM will be on hand to shift the focus from their own inadequacies and blame someone else.

After Dundee recorded a well deserved 2-1 victory over the league newcomers at Dens Park yesterday, it was circle the wagons time for all those concerned with the the club/company.

Racist, and former 48 hour director, clown shoes Chris Graham, was the first to respond with the club message that everything wrong at Ibrokes is Mark Warburton and Frank McParland’s fault. There was no mention of Davie Weir as his staunchness can’t be called into question.

According to him, the Manager of the Year must take responsibility for leaving caretaker and part-time acrobat Graeme Murty with the players that many over o the South Side thought capable of winning the Premiership.

After all, we were told the Rangers (IL) were coming….

And to keep the finger point going, Matthew ‘Bungle’ Lindsay of the Evening Times has laid the current Ibrokes crisis at Celtic’s door. Apparently, when Brendan thought about the best place for Ryan Christie to get game time and continue his development, it was specifically to hinder Sevco.

Bungle basically accuses Celtic of helping Aberdeen secure second place in the Premiership by loaning Ryan to the Dons, failing to credit them with a good run of form that’s seen only the Bhoys beat them.

This narrative is very much the same as in 2012, when everyone else was to blame for the Downfall of old Rangers. The SMSM are very much following the same pattern and no doubt the same outcome awaits Sevco.

Maybe then, Scottish football can get on with it…
