Daily Record goes off message with Sevco comment as Clement’s new striking target is trashed!

The Daily Record Hotline can sometimes be a column of reality tucked inside the hype, spin and cheerleading of the fading Glasgow publisher but today it went dangerously off message.

Regular rounds of staff cutting has taken its toll with wet behind the ears reporters given access to the website with barely any sign of Editorial controls.

Record readers expect the usual spin to be put on the most mundane signings at Ibrox, sadly it seems that they rarely jet in for a tour around the state-of-the-art facilities at Murray Park before snubbing Arsenal and Manchester United to sign up for a dream move.

There was a recent spectacular when Jefte was tipped to be on the move to Real Madrid a year after spending a season in Cyprus but manning the emails and phone calls today Ross Pilcher seems to have allowed standards to slip.

On Tuesday Michael Gannon produced a gushing profile of Hamza Igamane, earning bonus staunch points for repeated references to his current club, AS Royal Armed Forces Rabat.

Nothing was too much for the 21-year-old who hasn’t had a sniff at a full cap but after being scared off by the £6m price tag that Rapid Bucharest have put on Albion Rrahmani it is time to downscale and look at a £1.7m rated Moroccan, preferably brought in on a loan with an option to buy.

Today’s Record Hotline shows dangerous signs of independent thought with:

Robert Livingstone, Palm Beach, countered: “Jimmy Mac expressed what every Rangers supporter must be thinking; What’s going on in the boardroom? Who is approving these amateur hour signings?

“An unknown 7 goal Moroccan what a joke again not interested in league’s best strikers Miovski and Shankland, seems their option is to stick with Dessers and Danilo at 9, that’ll put a smile on the faces in the Parkhead boardroom.”

Jamie Thompson, Yoker, agreed. He said: “I’m really worried with Clement he needs to stop signing unknowns from Europe. He needs to sign Shankland, Miskovic, Borland. Few really good players from English league.”

Matt O’Riley keeps being linked with a move away from Celtic and one Hotline regular has been told to pack it in with the constant down talking of the midfielder’s capabilities. Michael Emonds, Northampton, emailed: “What a sicko Chris Lowe is, instead of celebrating his team winning the League Cup & Moral Victory Cup double, he’s spent the close season telling us all what a poor player Matt O’Riley is.

“This is the same Bhoy who has played against Sevco five times in the season just gone, won four, drawn one, lost none. he mentioned the 22 goals scored by centre forward Dessers, that for a no 9 doesn’t come close to midfielder Matt scoring 18 with 13 assists. Get them both to put their winners medals on the table since arriving in Glasgow.”

The S word has virtually been banned by legacy media outlets, being about as welcome as liquidation as the events of 2012 are skated around by the Record and the usual suspects.

Sevco 5088 was the club founded by Charles Green to buy the cut price assets of Rangers Football Club from Duff & Phelps, quickly it was renamed as Sevco Scotland as they entered discussions with the SFA which led to the Five Way Agreement featuring Sevco Scotland, the SFA, SFL, SPL and Duff & Phelps representing Rangers (IL),

Yesterday the Press Gazette revealed that print sales of the Record during May had dipped below 50,000 on the back of Celtic’s double success.
