Club 1872 have accused BBC Scotland of absurd mental gymnastics but have refused to comment on the translation of an Alfredo Morelos by Sky Sports.

The Ibrox fans group have had a long running feud with the state broadcaster while fans of every other club hit out at the pro-Ibrox bias of the broadcaster which calls on Billy Dodds, Neil McCann, Alex Rae and Steven Thompson for expert opinion. All four former Rangers players were given secret disguised remuneration payments during their Ibrox playing days.

Club 1872, whose percentage of shares in their company has been repeatedly diluted over the last 18 months, provide their members with a quarterly update on their activities with The Sun reporting:

Club 1872 members will be aware of the club’s long-standing dispute with BBC Scotland.

Since our last general update, we have issued four statements/updates specific to BBC Scotland and our correspondence with them on their refusal to cover games at Ibrox and interview Rangers players/staff.

We have also made a number of complaints to BBC Scotland regarding what we consider to be biased, inaccurate and offensive output, and have updated members on these complaints via email and social media.

It is absolutely clear from the responses we’ve had that BBC Scotland will use any excuse and perform mental gymnastics to the point of absurdity to try to justify instances of biased or inaccurate coverage

The most recent source of outrage for the fans group involved the comments of Michael Stewart.

The former Hearts midfielder linked Ibrox PR guru James Traynor to a number of stories involving Morelos which caused panic for Sportsound presenter Kenny MacIntyre.

Stewart was suspended by the BBC for three weeks with a lengthy apology given to Traynor at the start of the programme the following night.

Sky Sports apologised for the translation of their Morelos world exclusive but no statement was issued by the Ibrox club or Club 1872.
