The strange twisted relationship between Sevco and the BBC took another turn last night when Chic Young hosted a cosy Question and Answer session with Ally McCoist and Charles Green in the Thornton Suite at Ibrox.
When it comes to matchdays Young and his BBC colleagues aren’t allowed to speak to anyone at the club after they got upset the club earlier in the season.
Despite that the BBC give almost round the clock coverage to the Third Division side taking the moonbeams from Green at face value rather than demolishing them.
Up until the turn of the year the BBC provided a well paid platform for James Traynor to audition for the role of communications director at Ibrox defending the club he was seeking employment from at every turn against the few journalists and presenters at the BBC who weren’t toeing the club line.
While a relationship with a well-supported Glasgow club is essential for a commercial operator to retain audience or readership the state funded BBC don’t live in that world allowing them to pick and choose whichever club or issue they wish to pour their resources into.
With the doors of Ibrox slammed shut the various teams from the BBC could divert some of their resources towards the incredible success of Queen of the South or the closely fought battle between Morton and Partick Thistle at the top of Division One.
Reality however suggests that the BBC are bending over backwards to get back into the inner circle at Ibrox with Traynor in a position to negotiate a deal.
Young isn’t an employee of the BBC but is one of their top earners with the added perk of regular foreign travel from the licence payer.
Perhaps his appearance alongside Green and McCoist will restore the usual cuddly relationship between the two organisations or maybe the lifelong St Mirren fan was auditioning to join his former Airdrie supporting colleague Traynor on the Ibrox payroll?
