A couple of months have passed since it emerged Pedro Caixinha had banned his players from wearing green boots because they are “the colour of Celtic”. It was at the same time that he decided the slogan “We Are The People” would be stamped around the Ibrox walls for — in his words — our players and opponents to feel the strength of Rangers. Gimmicks and fluff: toying with the iconography while Celtic do their business on the pitch.
Pedro Caixinha has insisted that mind games will have no effect on him as he responded to the Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers’ point about Rangers being Scotland’s biggest spenders. Rodgers noted that Rangers had outspent his own club on summer transfers and therefore were clearly aiming to win the Ladbrokes Premiership this season.
Imagine Celtic and Rangers as two neighbours permanently tuned in to what the other is up to, each with an ear pressed up against a glass on either side of a dividing wall. Celtic have won six consecutive league titles, have posted a 74 per cent growth in revenue to a record £90.6 million, and just shared a stage with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. Rangers haven’t won a major trophy for six years and were knocked out of Europe two months ago by Uefa plankton from Luxembourg.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
