Well, apart from us it would seem as we have 'rarely' seen John Utaka do this in a Pompey shirt over the past few years!
I do not know what is winding me up more now, his 'performances' on the pitch or the ones of it?
I have lost track of the number of clubs Utaka has been 'linked' with, and from these 'links' the number that he has said he would 'love to play for' - the latest of which is Rangers...
Just a couple of days ago it was his 'desire' to stay in the premier league although now, as he told The Nigerian Tribune, he would 'love to play for Rangers' so he can 'showcase his talent' in the champions league: 'I have a couple of offers now and I would love to play for Rangers in the Scottish League because it will give me the opportunity to showcase my talent in the Champions League.
'It will give me the opportunity to show my detractors that I am not finished yet.
'Rangers is a good team that has won the title for the third time now, and I would love to associate myself with them.'
Wrong Johnny boy, with all due respect to Scottish football going up their and performing like a demon will prove nothing - just look at some of the names that have shone in Scotland, yet how many manage this in tougher leagues.
Sorry if this sounds disrespectful to Scottish football, or Rangers...
Although I reckon the Nigerian should face it, this move is NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!
He knows as well as I do if Rangers offered him half what he is picking up here at the moment he would be lucky. Dropping his wages to something like a 'mere' £14,000 per week is not going to happen - and in all honesty I am not convinced they would even pay him that.
This is a 'non-starter,' just like the previous 'links' to Scottish football with Celtic were, or any move anywhere for that matter, unless he is offered 'serious money'...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
