Kris Boyd takes most of the flack after his infamous welcome to Aaron Ramsey at the end of the January transfer window.
Back at the end of January all seemed well in the world as ‘the most successful Welshman to play in Scotland was announced with tears of joy in the Sky Sports studio.
The former Portland Timbers ace could hardly be more excited, struggling more than usual to get his words out as confirmation was given that the SPFL Premiership title would be remaining at Ibrox.
Two nights later Rambo Ramsey watched, alongside Boyd, as Ange Postecoglou’s side destroyed that idea with a comprehensive hiding as Celtic moved into top spot in the SPFL Premiership.
Welcome @aaronramsey to the world’s most successful club! The most successful Welshman ever to play in Scotland?

As ever, as a loyal Number 2, Rae was in the slipstream in his gushing praise for Ramsey, apparently the most successful Welshman in Scottish football according to the Reading assistant manager.
Ramsey leaves Scotland without scoring 100 plus goals like John Hartson, he never played in a win over Barcelona like Adam Matthews and never scored the winner in a Glasgow derby like Joe Ledley.
None of Celtic’s famous Welshman ever took a penalty in the Europa League or appeared as a regular pundit on Radio Clyde’s Super Scoreboard.
Rae was given undeclared remuneration of £569,000 by Dave Murray for his 34 appearances for the old Rangers club prior to liquidation.
