It’s not difficult to detect the glee from BBC Scotland at the prospect of Celtic missing out on reaching the group phase of the Champions League.

Success for Celtic helps commercial media groups through greater interest but the state broadcaster doesn’t have that concern.

With experts like Alex Rae (EBT), Kris Boyd (EBT), Steven Thompson (EBT) and Billy Dodds (EBT) on speed dial for their expert opinion they struggle to cover up where their allegiances are.

Every Revolution from Ibrox has been given the big billing as they carefully avoid a repeat of Mark Daly’s investigation of Craig Whyte on the current ownership of the company.

There are real issues at Celtic but yesterday they didn’t rush through the sale of last season’s leading scorer to Wigan Athletic.

Celtic fans will analyse the issues at the club, read and watch the interviews behind the headlines and make up their own minds.

The next seven days promises a festival of faux concern by the state broadcaster, Celtic supporters won’t be taking a lead from BBC Scotland or any other vested interest.
