In times of yore, armies laying siege to a well-fortified citadel would occasionally resort to catapulting rotten plague-infected corpses over the city walls. In a modern day homage to this, Liverpool have lobbed craptastic cripple Harry Kewell over Hadrian’s Wall and towards Glasgow. Thankfully, for Celtic fans, Gordon Strachan appears to be having cold feet:
“The prospect of Kewell teaming up with his compatriot, Scott McDonald, at Celtic Park might offer a potential increase in commercial revenue from merchandising back in Australia but Kewell’s injury-plagued five years at Anfield, after signing from Leeds United in 2003, is scaring off suitors. In addition, Celtic have had their fingers burnt in recent seasons by big-money acquisitions, such as Thomas Gravesen, from Real Madrid, who have failed to deliver.” (Times)
Would anyone really roll out the red carpet at Celtic Park for this footballing plague victim?
