Yesterday was a fun packed day. I had a day off so slept late, went to Leith for a few pints with an old mate and then came home to find two stories about me and my new film, Armageddon, in two tabloids. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't deal with tabloid newspapers. The fact is though none of them contacted me regarding the stories and that's among the reasons why there is very little story in them.
Firstly, and please stop me if you think I am patronising you, this film is not about the liquidation of Rangers (IL). I did that film, remember? Secondly, this film is not entirely about Newco. As I've said on numerous occasions, the film is in three sections, Newco, Oppression and Invincible. It comes from a book that I finished, also called Armageddon.
Secondly, I know the point of these stories. It's twofold. The first is they actually believe they are telling Celtic something new about me showing a film there. The other part is more sinister and is something I am well used to-expose the target on my back. Don't for one second believe "All publicity is good publicity" because it's hard to buy that when you wake up in the morning to yet more death threats.
The point is though, the show must go on.
See you in March.
