He's what used to be referred to as a "utility" player.

That's good of you to protect his privacy, with the amount of Hong Kong-dwelling Dundee fans on here there's no way of knowing who it is

Now you mention it, Ip Man was from Hong Kong. Is he Dee Man's dad?

Oh well. 

He rarely posts these days and I've never seen him mention he's in HK so his anonymity should remain intact. 

I'll keep an eye on flights to Hong Kong from Edinburgh and if I see a Mr Waffen T Mint boarding I'll get in touch with him and tell him to go into hiding.

It’s believed the authorities are anxious about the potential for a repeat of the crowd trouble which shamed this fixture the last time it was selected for a Saturday night TV slot, more than 17 years ago back in January 2002.

On that night home fans spilled on to the pitch to confront Rangers supporters after Aberdeen striker Robbie Winters had been struck by a coin.

Premier Sport had hoped to cash in on the latest instalment of this fierce rivalry, which could come hot on the heals of a stormy 4-2 win for Rangers last week.

But they are now expected to agree to the wishes of the police.

 

That's about the game in 2002 when Rangers fans were ripping up and chucking their seats towards the pitch.

They didn't give a shit about the folk in the front rows. Front row folk went trackside and that's when it all went a wee bit ID in the south stand.

Ah yes, it was the Aberdeen fans that started it.  Of course.

Tbf that's as poisonous an atmosphere as I've seen at Pittodrie, on both sides.  Everyone drunk and everyone very, very angry.

The crowd trouble however was quite blatantly started by one set of fans and persisted for a matter of minutes.  Robbie Winters was unable to take the corner for being pelted whilst being serenaded with some lovely songs  before a few drunk dafties from our end (and it was maybe 10 at most) decided to act hard.

I was in London for that match and went along to an Aberdeen supporting pub to watch it. There was a couple of Americans there too as guests and they had eyes like saucers at the antics on screen and the dons fans in the pub going raj. Especially when Amoruso scored. Oosht.

Barry Ferguson on the McGregor/L.Ferguson incident IN THE SAME ARTICLE:

'But thankfully Lewis never got hurt. It's a booking for me and it's outside the box.'

He then says:

'It was a reckless challenge and it does deserve to be a penalty. I think it might have deserved a red card.'

That's just laughable.

When the Sun meets Barry Ferguson, it maybe shouldn't surprise us that the result is incomprehensible, contradictory drivel.

It does read a lot like Barry confused himself in the internal conflict over being Lewis' Uncle and a staunch Rangers man, resulting in the nonsensical verbal diarrhoea contained in that article.

I think the first quote is meant to be Barry Ferguson quoting McGregor, then the second is just Barry's opinion. That's the only way I can make sense of it anyway.

It initially looks like only the first couple of quotes were from Ferguson & McGregor's conversation but, it then seems to flit between that and Ferguson's comments to the Sun reporter wihtout actually clarifying what's been said by who. It's terrible journalism either way.

ETA: Reading it again it seems less like that. I've no idea...

That explanation would make sense, but it doesn't really read that way at all, given the quotes that sit either side of it, which very clear belong to Barry Ferguson himself.

You're right that it's terrible journalism either way, but I think the real way to make sense of it is to recognise the difficulty Ferguson has when striving to make sense.

The Sun may just have made up all the quotes anyway, as if they were really from Barry surely they would all start with "Listen...."
