It’s time to end the Scott Brown hokey cokey. In-out, in-out is no way to start a new era for the Scotland team or their new manager. The Celtic captain has been the best player in the nation by a country mile these past two seasons. His play, influence and drive have been outstanding at the heart of a team who have won everything by the length of the M74, the M8 and the A9 combined. Any coach who didn’t want that sort of guy in their team would be, as they say, for the watching.
There’s no point trying to rationalise the irrational – but sometimes you have to try. Sometimes you need to put yourself in someone else’s head and try to work out their thought process. A process that starts with an idea, then some research, then a purchase, then a journey, then a decision, then an action. The you realise there’s still no point trying to fathom it.
They’ve not had a player like him in years – but Lewis Morgan would love to imitate the two-footed genius of Lubo Moravcik at Celtic. The 21-year-old is a rare breed in modern football, hitting corners and free-kicks from both sides in his rise up the ranks with St Mirren to earn his £300,000 Hoops move. But it was nurture, not nature, which gave him the gift, with hours of graft as a kid getting him to the point he wanted – where no full- back knew which side he was going.
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".
