After the joy of Sevco pulling out of the Sydney Cup that their supporters were showing yesterday, reality has now started to sink in.
While Celtic will be going to Australia and picking up close to £10m after the initial fee plus a large percentage of ticket sales, Sevco are not only going to miss out on that money, but end up £3m out of pocket, after withdrawing from the tournament.
To ease his pain at Sevco’s financial loss, glib and shameless liar Joe Black has been making up nonsense on Twitter.
He claims to have contacts in Australia who confirmed the money that we are getting is far less than what is being reported and is only £900k!
Which is funny, considering it was actually Sevco Chief James Bisgrove that came out and stated that Sevco would make more money from these two friendlies than in an entire SPFL season.
So Joe is essentially saying that the Sevco board have lied to their own supporters.
Wee Joe didn’t quite think this fairytale through!
Check out the ridiculous tweet for yourself below.
