We bossed it! Deluded Phil goes deep into denial

Philippe Clement was deep in delusion after his side drew 0-0 at Dundee.

One point from two matches means that the Ibrox club trails Celtic by three points when they were expected to leapfrog the hoops into top spot as the post-split fixtures begin.

Following on from Micky Beale the former Monaco boss was quickly described as A Proper Manager but with his title challenge falling to bits he is fast turning into the Belgian Beale but without the credit for being the Brains Behind Gerrard.

Ibrox fans don’t take kindly to defeat, failures in management rarely last beyond a year as Giovanni van Bronckhorst and Beale can testify.

Telling the fans the opposite to what they have been watching isn’t a wise move with criticism switching from the serial losers on the park to the man picking them with a run of two wins in eight matches going into a Scottish Cup semi-final.

It’s not the result I wanted but on the other side, the reaction, we bossed it today for the whole game.

Our structure, we created enough chances to win the game but the ball didn’t go in and that’s the story of today.

There was a good goalkeeper on the other side also who made a few good saves, they cleared a few balls on the line so luck wasn’t on our side.

Of course we could do some details better but if you play against a team that does man marking all over the pitch everywhere you go so there’s not much space so you need to be decisive.

We had chances to kill the game off and there were a few times they were really lucky defensively.

Clement is expected to host another media conference tomorrow to preview Sunday’s match against Hearts with the usual dose of delusion for the soft ball media questions.

    And so we have it straight from the horse’s mouth …Dundee were ” licky ” last night ! My feeling is that behind the scenes big Clem – on frightens the bejesus out of his lot and they are petrified of the Belgian ? I could believe he would have a very short fuse sparkling to explode at any time ? There was a shot from the Sky cameras last night where Todd Cantwell was doing a Baz Ferguson and Alan McGregor routine after being subbed , sitting behind Clem – on holding 2 fingers up at his cheek ,as if he was sending out a coded message to the boss in defiance ? Name me one single player big Pip has improved and turned into a genuinely great player worth big dough since his tenure as head coach in Ibroxland ? I’m still waiting …….

  • Paul Mac says:

    I am just sitting here thinking … this manager … initials PC .. where have I seen that delusion before ??! Ahh the Caravans ….so here is a question … who is more deluded … Clement or Caixinha ??! Ahhh as the song goes I’m loving it loving it 😉
