You have to laugh that the Scottish press tried to make out that Celtic had a genuine interest in signing current ‘Rangers’ player Rabbi Matondo in the summer and that the Ibrox side ‘beat us to his signature’.
There is not a chance in hell that Ange Postecoglou watched this guy and thought he was good enough for this current Celtic side. It is laughable to even suggest such nonsense.
I said myself when they signed him after watching his video highlights and I wrote “He’s fast, but that’s about it!” And now, funnily enough, that is exactly what our rivals are saying about him now after watching him for the last 6 months!
They paid £2.5m for this guy, to put it into perspective, that’s the same price we paid for Josip Juranovic just the year before!
In having a look at their match thread to assess their confidence or lack of it for the game on Monday, most of what I have read is them slagging him off, which is hilarious, and it makes it all the more funny that they were bragging at apparently beating us to his signature in the summer.
