He has gotten the backs up of many a football supporter on the airwaves, in print and on TV. Now he has left it all behind, passed through Checkpoint Charlie and joined the circus.
Jim Traynor ‘journalist’ and now ‘ex-journalist’ has crossed the media divide. He’s finally taken an official role down Edmiston Drive.
Traynor going to Sevco is like Prince Charles marrying Camilla. Finally, confirmation of our suspicions has been sealed…or would that be our paranoia?
There was never any doubt of Traynor’s allegiance, having been in the back pocket of Murray for so long. The worst kept secret in Scottish football.
Davie Provan even showed his distaste of Jabba’s former role in his column:
“Fondest retirement to Sir David Murray’s best-trained media poodle who has closed his laptop after years of sterling service. When it came to loyalty, this hack’s devotion to Sir David would have put Greyfriars Bobby to shame. One grovelling piece with the fawning description of a dinner shared with the steel tycoon, is the stuff of legend. No surprise then that Charles Green has tempted him out of retirement.”
Nice to hear from the ex-Celt, but a little too late. Parting shots are ineffective, you need to say it when it counts.
Talking of parting shots, Jabba didn’t exactly go quietly. By now most of you will have come across his excretion last week.
He declared his disgust of the modern day blogger. Of their inaccuracies of the facts.
Well Jabba, you’ve been that doing for years. In fact, I even pulled you up for it.
After writing an article about Celtic’s title chances in 2003, I challenged the Daily Record about it. Yeah I know I shouldn’t have read it but it was ten years ago man!
My email was passed straight to Traynor shortly followed by an outburst of defensiveness from him. I stood firm, reiterated my point and mellowed his mood by taking the morale high ground.
This was the last time I read any of his or the Daily Record’s guff for myself. In fact, in opposition to Traynor, I really enjoy people who blog.
I enjoy the personal touch of the every day man or woman who is driven by their passion. People are tired of tabloid drivel.
Reading the opinions of real people is better than listening to a lapdog. There’s no looking back for me.
If anything, it is guy’s like him who have misrepresented Scottish football whilst being fed by Murray at the same time. Pouring out his own bile whilst turning a blind eye to the deceased 1872 club.
How ironic that the part he played for the former club during those years of deceit and shame see him take up a role at Sevco. Green’s madness no knows bounds.
Traynor has written his own ticket for years of loyalty to Murray and his crumbled empire. I don’t imagine his role will be any more impressive than his columns were.
