Celtic are just born losers. All the bought success in the world can't change that.

So sad to see what's happened to the Scotsman's online output. They were one of the early adopters of website content, but instead of moving with the times their site has descended into a clickbait minefield that as you said is choked full adverts. 

My adblocker picks up 38 ads on their sport homepage which is far too intrusive and IMO the wrong way to go about content monetisation in  2019.

(For comparisons sake, the Daily Record's main football page has 21 ads; the Sun has 15; Guardian 12).

The Edinburgh Evening News isn't much better. Here's one of today's headlines on their site:

Desperate stuff.

No one, but it's what you're implying.

These are the same guys who continually write puff pieces about Celtic as well.

You're a cretin and a shitebag.

Today's Sun. If he has signed a pre contract agreement with Hearts why would playing against  Dundee United be an issue?

Its not as if they've just typed Hearts instead of United, as they expand on the move.

Very odd.

Ross County edged a further point closer to the Scottish Championship title and Partick Thistle a point nearer safety after a draw in Dingwall.

Quote

Despite the draw, Thistle slip to the bottom of the division but still move a point closer to 10th after Falkirk won and Queen of the South lost.

The same story from the BBC's Scottish and English websites. 

5cb49b8e1fedc_DelS.jpg.3e5c3536114ccb57eef78cbf26a109dd.jpg

A story about how stupid McInnes was reacting to being abused.

5cb49ba53abff_DelE.jpg.e5cb63c3a620e4b034d6eafcc57990f4.jpg

A story about sectarianism.

Use your skill and judgement to decide which site took which angle.
