JOHN HARTSON has used his column with the Evening Times to blast Kris Boyd for his running commentary of the Celtic dressing room branding him an attention seeker.
The former Celtic striker believes Kris is simply working his ticket into a cushy post-football pundit job by making as much noise as possible before he actually retires.
The man who famously flopped at Ibrox since their 2012 inception has had a lot to say about Celtic and their stuttering start to the season but Hartson maintains the striker is entitled to an opinion but when it comes to the facts, he hasn’t got a clue!
“I just think Kris has a platform now because he has his eyes on a career as a pundit and columnist when his playing time comes to an end. And for that you need to have an opinion and have something to say so this is him looking to get a few tongues wagging – and irritate Celtic in the process.
“He is as entitled to his opinion as anyone else. I don’t have an issue with it at all. I just think you have to take a step back and have a think about his motivation for saying it.”
It’s clear Boyd’s motivation is to continue the narrative of Celtic’s discontent but it’s hard to keep pushing that after what everybody saw on Sunday.
Celtic demolished St Johnstone with a side who looked like they were playing for each other from the off.
Hartson also made reference to this.
“That team who scored six against St Johnstone – did that look like a divided team? That celebration when every single outfield player ran to congratulate James Forrest – did that look like team with a split in it?”
