I met the new Rangers manager for the first time today. Very impressed. Opinions, tactics, humour and humility. Quite a change. A much better talker than his predecessor. Warburton spent his time telling us he'd been "misquoted, as usual" by the press. I'll get a good look at the SPFL's newest boss when we broadcast Rangers' away games at @kilmarnockfootballclub (https://www.instagram.com/kilmarnockfootballclub/) and second-placed @officialaberdeenfc (https://www.instagram.com/officialaberdeenfc/) next week. I asked him if he knew what the great Glaswegian phrase "square go" means! He does now!l! I was happy to help.

T'S WAR Sky Sports presenter David Tanner utterly slaughters former Rangers boss Mark Warburton and says ‘he won’t be missed’
Tanner took to social media to praise Pedro Caixinha before attacking the former Ibrox boss in an astonishing rant

By Aidan Scott

30th March 2017, 4:40 pm Updated: 30th March 2017, 4:56 pm

SKY SPORTS presenter David Tanner has SLAUGHTERED former Rangers manager Mark Warburton on social media.

The TV host claimed that Warburton “won’t be missed” and hinted that the Englishman’s former colleagues had also been sticking the boot in.

Tanner also said the new Nottingham Forest boss was not as good a talker as Portuguese manager Pedro Caixinha – due to the fact he said so little.

Keep up to date with ALL the latest news, transfers and goals from Scottish football plus fixtures, results and live match commentary

Tanner was at Caixinha’s press conference today ahead of Rangers‘ match against Motherwell.

And he took to Instagram afterwards to praise the Portuguese – and have a go at Warburton.

Tanner said: “I met the new Rangers manager for the first time today.

“Very impressed. Opinions, tactics, humour and humility. Quite a change.

“A much better taker than his predecessor but that wouldn’t be difficult, to be uncharacteristically frank with you.

Tanner’s out-of-the-blue attack on Warburton is sure to stun fans.

And it will be interesting to see how Rangers supporters respond to the presenter in the coming days.

It's a shit state of affairs when you need to keep toads like Tanner on side - but the fact is Warburton's barely concealed contempt for the press scum up here - and the fact they had to wait 12 months before they could really start criticising him (a few exceptions like Ralston aside) - meant their knives were well and truly sharpened for this season and they went for it big style.

Unfortunately if Pedro wants a slightly less hostile press he probably will need to play ball with some of these feckwits.

I could understand it if he asked about square sausage, purely for dietary requirements, but a square go? How old is he?

The square go part was cringey.

Other than that it's difficult to disagree.

Warburton was like a fad diet. Great results at first but completely not fit for purpose long term.

Warburton handled the Scottish press exactly how they deserved to be handled and I doubt it will be too long before Caixinha learns how to treat them too.

Leaving aside the criticism of Warburton, it should be noted that a Scottish journalist said something pleasant about Rangers. That's surely a headline in itself.

Sorry but I'm not buying that. If he was able to manage the press they wouldn't have been clamouring for him to be sacked for so long.

I actually discussed Warburton with a member of the first team squad who was complimentary about his coaching methods but pretty much confirmed the jist of that article, that he was completely out his depth in managing the press and the other aspects of being a Rangers manager.

Did he really? Think if you look back at his press conferences he said basically the same thing during every one and I've yet to find one where he really went on the offensive.

He tried to be smart by saying things that couldn't be directly challenged, wishy washy statements that meant nothing. Think the press knew the c unt was touting himself behind the scenes to all and sundry and ultimately his last press conference highlighted what a tool MW is!!

Warburton handled the media appallingly. 90% "always with respect" 10% tetchy David Brent style reactions to criticisms. Contrary to the posts above he never went through people for asking dumb questions and they just carried on asking even worse ones.

God knows how Pedro will do and f*ck Tanner but yeah, Warburton's media handling was another failing many were blind to (and some still are it would appear).

Always thought that Mark Warburton displayed a level of intelligence far above that of the interviewing journalists. They went out of their way to trip him up but rarely succeeded. Pretty pathetic of Tanner to wait until MW is off the scene before slagging the man off. Pathetic but unsurprising.

Like being savaged by a dead sheep.

As for Warburton , yes his press conferences became repetitive and a bit tiresome but he had the measure of that lot and they knew it.

Bigmother
30-03-2017, 19:36
Warburton continually trotted out the same bland cliches at every press conference. We the fans learnt nothing from them. It wasn't all the fault of the press. Compare and contrast with what Pedro says. It's the same journalists.

bearskin
30-03-2017, 19:47
I don't see why our coaches have to 'manage the press' anymore? Why pander to the majority of these people who do not like us and type what they want anyway?

We have our own outlets for interviews, comments, videos to get the message out to us the fans. It's habit that some still buy newspapers, mainly older generation perhaps. Possibly same habit that we look at the same newspaper online content now. We should all get in the mindset that to get news about the team/club we create the habit of using club resources only. Cripple the naysayers

Tanner's a snivelling little prick, he says this now after Warburton's gone but whatever criticism is aimed at our ex manager's time in charge nothing changes the fact that the vast majority of the football media pack up here are no use b@stards and an embarrassment to the profession. The sheer amount of slabbering pish these arseholes talked and inane questioning MW endured was shameful but he handled them fairly well most of the time, I suspect some of the stuff he faced was just sheer ****wittery from people who are winging it as so called sports journalists and there's no doubt a certain amount of the stuff they made the topic of conversation and lines of questioning was done deliberately to annoy and antagonise, hopefully the new manager is able for them and I'd say the club needs to help him and deal with C@NTS who try and take the piss.

I don't know what's more pathetic, the fact that Tanner came out with this pish or the fact that The Sun printed it as some sort of explosive story.
Jesus Wept!

The questions are awful our manager is asked every week. The square go thing today was something you would expect your drunk pal to ask some one not a journalist at a press conference.

Warburton just repeated himself every week granted on and off the park but we do not have one credible journalist asking questions at the training ground ever. Same pish questions, same pish patter week after week.

As for the square go question, fck me, even the delivery was terrible. Rather than have a bit of a laugh with him, they tried to rip the pish. If you want to talk about the incident, tell him and then ask have you ever heard of a 'square go'.

I don't really give a flying **** how Pedro deals with the serpentine press corps in this country as long as he puts a winning team on the pitch.

Warburton couldn't be arsed with them, rightly so, but clearly he or someone close to him was leaking information to them at the same time which corroborates the disconnect between his public and private personae.

If your definition of articulation is of the Oxbridge-educated Imperial diplomacy variety then those occupying the managerial chairs at football clubs are likely to disappoint.

As far as football managers go, he more than passed muster.

Typically as results hit the skids, every and any personal fallibility begins to find itself under attack, and so it was with Warburton.

Could he be too repetitive in his interviews? Probably.

Did they frequently lack a degree of substance? Definitely.

Was Stephen Fry ever in danger of being replaced by him as host of QI? I doubt it.

Was Mark Warburton a bumbling idiot? No.

Thought MW handled the press pretty well for the most part. Above my pay grade was simply a polite way of not answering something he didnt want to answer. Generally gave them nothing despite a lot of baiting and still they'd concoct controversial headlines by not only twisting but totally misrepresenting what he said
Those looking for a manager to communicate his intentions through the press should have a look at some of the big names' conferences. No one gives anything away.

Usual suspects giving it tight to Warburton and indirectly backing a system that doesn't give a **** about the club.

Warburton gave the press nothing they were dying for him to screw up. It was a dangerous agenda he set for himself personally think he could have given himself a bit of room but his choice....

Any comments on Pedro in relation to the Warburton/media situation are at this stage ludicrous as we need to see how it pans out....obviously PC comes across very very well but the media play a game and he will need different approaches.

Frankly the modern day exchanges are garbage and the questioning is a waste of time.......how PC handles the media in the long run won't matter-just as it didn't for Warburton. The big pressure is driven by results and the support.

Usual suspects giving it tight to Warburton and indirectly backing a system that doesn't give a **** about the club.

Warburton gave the press nothing they were dying for him to screw up. It was a dangerous agenda he set for himself personally think he could have given himself a bit of room but his choice....

Any comments on Pedro in relation to the Warburton/media situation are at this stage ludicrous as we need to see how it pans out....obviously PC comes across very very well but the media play a game and he will need different approaches.

The Pedro love-in is eerily familiar to the Warburton love in when he first arrived and for a long time after. The revisionism on here at times takes the biscuit. I'd wager no more than three percent on here called Warburton out when he first got here, everyone else bought into his philosophy and at times his press conferences were like a bukkaki fest as spunk bounced off the FF keyboards with righteous abandon at his use of the term "pitch geography" and the like as we collectively swooned at his mastery of the game. So let's not kid ourselves on lads. Let Warburton go and let's give Pedro some time before we start jerking off over his every phrase.

:D maybe not quite the way I'd have put it but agree entirely.

Everybody loved Warburton at first and we were told he had the scumbag press in his back pocket. Most bought into this.

Pedro has performed well in front of the cameras but lets wait to see how he reacts when they turn on him or he gets pissed off with their constant shite questions.

And Tanner is a wee bawbag, always has been.

"Rips in to" Mark Warburton....???

FFS OP, you've never been in a fight, argument or had confrontation before have you?

laughed at that,
and obviously ripped into him from 300 miles away as well.

Warburton's gone.

Let the anger go.

There's no anger, champ. Just surprise at the naivety of some.

Great you can stop posting about him and move on then.

Remember if you stop making rubbish posts about him, I won't have to reply to them.

If your definition of articulation is of the Oxbridge-educated Imperial diplomacy variety then those occupying the managerial chairs at football clubs are likely to disappoint.

As far as football managers go, he more than passed muster.

Typically as results hit the skids, every and any personal fallibility begins to find itself under attack, and so it was with Warburton.

Could he be too repetitive in his interviews? Probably.

Did they frequently lack a degree of substance? Definitely.

Was Stephen Fry ever in danger of being replaced by him as host of QI? I doubt it.

Was Mark Warburton a bumbling idiot? No.

3 out of 4 correct or as MW would mumble, "we'll learn from that, we have to". At least I think that's what he said.

Tanner's right on the whole.

Nice lad, met him before. Just wish he wouldn't be so scared in the public domain to admit he's a Rangers fan.

I have never met him, but it doesn't stop me from thinking he is a total cvunt.
Rangers fan...........ffsake what has he ever done inside his trade that has ever helped give Rangers a fair deal?
Not a favour ....I don't want favours.....just an honest square deal...............when has Tanner ever even attempted to give us that?

Just this week Richard Keys a journalist who is not a Rangers fan....who is not even involved in Scottish football, ......and who has never had a dog in the race......did more for our profile as a club with one single paragraph in a newspaper than Tanner has done in his entire journalistic career.
Did I mention that I still think Tanner is a total cvunt?
