Silva’s diving days are numbered in Scottish football

Fabio Silva, the Portuguese comedian on loan to theRangers has been told that he will be heading back to parent club Wolves in the summer. I know, shock horror eh?

Wolves wasted money on Silva

Wolves somehow managed to part with £40 million for the boy who spends more time on the floor than with the ball at his feet. Even by inflated EPL prices, that is still an extravagant amount of cash for a player with such limited ability and integrity.

When Silva signed on at Ibrox in the summer he was heralded as something of a sensational signing. Not quite on the level of Aaron Ramsey, but he was hailed as something special all the same.

The predictable ‘Celtic too were interested in his services’ line was also rolled out, to please the deluded bears. In spite of Celtic denying any interest in the Portuguese diver.

You hardly needed to be Einstein

You hardly needed to be Einstein to know that Fabio would be heading back south in the summer from the very moment he temporarily signed on at Ibrox.

I’m reliably informed that Fabio is currently the highest paid player in Scotland, and that theRangers have been paying 100% of his wages themselves since he arrived at Ibrox.  Delicious that one.

Silva’s antics on the park have been disgraceful

His sky high salary along with a price tag ranging between the £15-£25 million mark meant that he was never making any deal a permanent one even if Silva impressed on the park. He hasn’t and his antics on the park has been disgraceful and will stick with Silva wherever he goes.

The rolling around the pitch in apparent agony against Celtic, the dive for the penalty dutifully and disgracefully awarded by John Beaton and Nick Walsh on VAR and to cap it all his dive against Hearts when he had an open goal but instead decided to go down apparently anticipating contact.

Even theRangers fans will secretly have been embarrassed by this fraud of a footballer, remarkably the highest paid player in Scottish football at this moment in time.
