After smiling a No Comment about transfer updates on Friday, Micky Beale rattled off the life story of Nicolas Raskin.
The midfielder is in dispute with Standard Liege and is the current message board favourite of Ibrox fans to revive their team through his inspirational midfield play.
As a current Belgian u-21 internationalist there are likely to be a couple of other clubs showing interest as his contract ticks down.
Regardless of that, all that it takes is for a few ITKs on message boards to share their inside track and before your know it #raskinisabear is trending across social media.

Belgian based reporter Sacha Tavolieri has 35,000 Twitter followers and real life contacts in football. The fact that Raskin’s brother is following the Tribute Act on Instagram is probably less significant than Tavolieri’s views.
After failing to cut a deal for John Souttar from Hearts a year ago the odds are against Ross Wilson securing any players in the current window who are out of contract in May.
Three weeks ago Beale looked into the eyes of his transfer targets to ensure that they had the minerals to play for the second best team in Glasgow.
