Abraham Lincoln was bang on when he famously said you can’t please all of the people all of the time. But even so, you still have to scratch your head and wonder what was going through the minds of the handful of dissenting Celtic fans who tried to vote Dermot Desmond off the board yesterday.
Dignity. It’s a word that used to be considered as integral a part of the language at Rangers as ‘winning’ and ‘trophies’. But in these recent turbulent years for the Ibrox club Alex Rae has watched in horror as all three have become increasingly distant from the club he loves. That’s why he believes the next managerial appointment the board makes is critical to getting, not only the team back on track, but the whole club back to the basic principles that defined Rangers for so long.
Raging Neil McCann slammed referee John Beaton for not having the balls to red card Anthony Stokes for punching his player where it hurts. The Dundee boss accused Stokes of punching Jack Hendry between the legs during a second half flashpoint that left the defender writhing on the deck. McCann hounded the referee and at full-time demanding to know why he didn’t send Stokes off for violent conduct - instead choosing to book BOTH players for their part in the bust-up.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
