Celtic fans were quick to let BBC Scotland know their feelings on the broadcasters Kris Boyd obsession.
On Saturday the state broadcaster decided to go ahead with an interview in which the Kilmarnock substitute justified his view on Celtic’s dressing room split with the word because!
Public service seems to have been kicked into touch to provide a platform for anyone who wishes to launch baseless attacks on Celtic.

You’re just trolling everyone now. Can’t believe we have to pay a licence fee for this guff.

FFS. Can I opt out from paying for this utter guff?

BBC nothing more than a tabloid these days, what is this nonsense? And you wonder why people begrudge the licence fee
— James Casey (@jcasey1986) October 9, 2018
Who cares? Why is this news? You’re a publicly funded body and you’re spending my money on this drivel. Stop pandering to this man.

Boyd’s views, or the views he is instructed to think, are usually aired every Saturday morning in The Sun which generally provides a running commentary on Celtic’s alleged problems.
Going on message board rumours and the wishes of a former Radio Scotland presenter and news-hound Boyd has a ready market with those sickened by Celtic’s domestic dominance.
Seven successive titles and two back-to-back trebles has left deep scars at BBC Scotland with the comforting words of Boyd offering hope that their suffering may soon be over.
