Shame that you said Pre MJ. I really wanted to be the first person to say "Kenny Miller" and start the haters off. Oh, I still said it anyway...

Kenny Miller is not a Catholic, is he? Not that it matters right enough.

Actually, I think there was a little humour in there. It was more a dig at his apparent willingness to sign for the great unwashed a few years back.

I didnt think so. You had me going there! :) His allegiance growing up was for Hibs, who have loads of Protestant fans, when asked to sign for Celtic, who could blame him? I didnt. I was just happy they punted him and he ended up back with us.

It's the Welsh we fucking hate.

One Welshman to play for us in our history. Now that is blindingly racist. :craphead:
