GEOFF BROWN knows how to run a stable business. So the St Johnstone owner-turned-horse-breeder isn’t surprised a thoroughbred manager like Derek McInnes turned down Rangers. Brown handed McInnes his managerial break just a little over 10 years ago after recognising the then Saints midfielder as a “born chief”. The pair enjoyed a close, fruitful relationship as the Perth club’s fledgling gaffer led them to the Premiership.
CRAIG LEVEIN last night urged Hearts players and fans to turn Tynecastle into a fortress again – starting today against Celtic. Levein’s Jam Tarts stumbled back into their re-opened home with three disappointing draws before back-to-back wins over Motherwell and Dundee lifted spirits and voices. Now Hearts’ gaffer is calling on the Gorgie punters to raise the roof for the visit of Brendan Rodgers’ ‘Invincibles’ – and make today’s lunchtime’s clash hell for the Hoops.
But Anthony O’Connor insists rumours linking the Aberdeen boss with a move to Rangers have never been discussed inside Pittodrie. McInnes was immediately installed as favourite to replace Pedro Caixinha at Ibrox after the Portuguese was sacked five weeks ago. The Dons have won just two of their five subsequent games, while drawing with Hamilton and racking up costly defeats to Motherwell and the Gers.
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".
