Vladimir Romanov has attempted to clear up the ‘mis-interpretation’ of his last comments about referees and the media in Scotland.

His latest statement continues to refer to the media as ‘monkeys’, who are apparently led by ‘Mowgli’! To be honest I’m probably going to have to read this statement a couple of times before voicing an opinion on it, but here it is in its entirety for you to stew over in the meantime……..

Dear Monkeys

Today I will not be showing your portrait to you. It is pointless. You are one step away from becoming human beings.

Go and carefully have a look at yourself in the mirror. Don’t you see a human in it?

Stop fighting for the values which the ex-captain of Hearts was fighting for.

Education and truthful information – that should be your input to humankind.

Your leader Mowgli is not taking bananas any more, now he is taking money for lies and untruthful interpretation. However he is greedy and makes you collect rotten information from cesspits and poisons readers with it.

This is unworthy even of a monkey.

Today I will express my opinion in English about refereeing in order that your Mowgli will not make you tell lies.

To discuss whether referees take money or not is the same as discussing a woman who gives herself with no love.

Isn’t it better to concentrate on the standard of their work instead of looking for reasons for their poor performance?

A woman cheats herself and nature if she gives herself without love. If a referee officiates a game based on his personal love, he commits a cynical crime, especially when the public has trusted him.

I respect those referees who take money from two stupid teams and then honestly officiates a game. They do not harm football in any way. Though it is bad, still everybody is equal for them. Perhaps that is the reason why football in Italy will never die despite all the scandals that continuously shake it.

I think that is much better than being the champions for 40 years while building up the same system for a further 40 years.

Now it has become obvious to me why you, the Monkeys, were trying to ruin Hearts not only in the Championship, but in European competitions as well. I think it was not without your help that the ‘frozen’ referee from Russia was selected to officiate our match and that in the games against the Greek side we got three red cards.

It is not without your help that traitors were presented as heroes thus showing the road to children for betrayal.

You will always call teachers silly because unlike you they lead children along the correct path.

Protecting your values in that way just spoils not only football, but also a Scotsman’s proud name.

I beg you Mowgli, take the monkeys back to the Safari Park!

  • There’s a very good chance that while he was writing this statement he had a pair of underpants over his head, two pencils up his nose and mumbling “wibble”. You’ve got to admit that, apart from all the problems at Tynecastle, he can cheer you up no end (unless you work for the SFA)!

  • Hot off the press!…. Sir Mowgli Murray launches his latest media venture…”The Safari Park News” featuring an exclusive “Bribe Your Own REF Kit”…free inside issue 1…,lol….., Seriously though, Vlad should forget about Ref’s and concentrate on the arse-licking Press instead. The ref rants detract from anything else he says. It’s a Pity.

  • Well I think his main problem these days IS actually with the Press, hence the “Mowgli” and “monkeys” nonsense. Some of his observations are bang on by the way, but I agree he really should get his own house in order before firing off like this. Entertainment though. The Press really should LOVE this guy, not hate him – after all, he’s effectively keeping them in a job with all these quotes!

  • Maybe I’m thick, or maybe I’m just monkeying up the wrong tree, but I’m just trying to figure out who “Mowgli” is supposed to be in this latest rant?
