I’d say hardy old school Vincent’s lads like Mullins and Keaveney are mortified by this whole thing. How the fuck did a harmless spat like this end up in court and all over The Sunday papers?
look at the head on this fucker
“The ice preserved them perfectly” as the picture shows a black lump with a shoe sticking out of it.
Should lead to some interesting bed time conversations.
PANICKING Celtic star Stuart Armstrong attempted to rescue Gary Mackay-Steven after he jumped in to a chilly river at 3am, it has emerged.
The Hoops midfielder, 25, tried to save his stricken pal after watching him plunge into the water during “high jinks”.
He acted before mercy crews arrived by boat to haul Mackay-Steven, 26, from the fast-flowing River Kelvin in Glasgow.
The former Parkhead team-mates were returning from a night out in the city’s trendy Sanctuary club when the Aberdeen ace leapt in.
Tonight, a pal claimed the winger had been left red-faced after spending nearly 90 minutes in the river.
They said: “The current was quite strong so he couldn’t get back to the bank.
“There was nothing sinister about what happened. It was high jinks which went a bit wrong.
“Gary feels pretty embarrassed about the whole thing and wants to put it behind him.
“He’s very grateful for all the good wishes.”
Mackay-Steven was snapped returning to his plush Glasgow flat today dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, despite suffering hypothermia in the drama.
Asked how he was feeling, the smiling star replied: “No comment.”
An onlooker said: “He seemed in good spirits considering the ordeal he’s just gone through.
“He smiled when he was asked how he was but quickly made his way up to his flat.
“He looked pretty relaxed as if nothing had happened.”
The Scotland cap, from Thurso, Caithness, was greeted at the door by a young blonde woman, who said: “He can’t talk right now.”
He was later spotted dumping a suitcase in his motor after changing into pink boots, tight blue jeans, a flannel shirt and baseball cap.
Meanwhile ex-Parkhead pal Leigh Griffiths admitted he’d had a giggle after reading our story yesterday.
The striker, 26 — on international duty with Scotland — said: “We were just talking about it with Charlie Mulgrew and Stu Armstrong. It’s so funny.
“Maybe he just wanted to float back up to Thurso — it’s too far away for a taxi.
“I wouldn’t say he’s tight exactly, but if he got a taxi it would cost him a few quid. He maybe just wanted to sit on his back and float until he got there. You wouldn’t expect it of Gary to be fair.
“I don’t know what he was thinking, you’d need to speak to him. It’s good reading for the boys waking up on a Monday morning.”
He added: “These things usually happen to me but I wouldn’t be so silly — I’d pay a taxi to take me home instead of floating there.”
Fucking waster. No wonder Scotch football is shit.
How does this rank with Jimmy Johnstone’s rowing boat incident in 1974 .
Scotch soccerball is back creating scandal .
I found myself wrapped up in this story
Off to the lookalikes thread with that one.
What you mean ?
Why nothing. Nothing at all.
