Just after 1.30pm today the headline flashed up across Twitter:

BREAKING NEWS…. Dundee confirm intention to vote against SPFL plan.

Coming from a trusted source, BBC Sportsound it seemed like a breakthrough on the stand off that has existed since Friday evening.

Alas there was absolutely nothing to the story. Someone at the state broadcaster thought that putting their spin on a club statement at lunchtime today which was virtually identical to yesterday’s 5pm statement BREAKING NEWS.

Instead it was just another reheat of yesterday’s news. As we’ve come to expect from BBC Scotland it is all loaded against the proposal from the SPFL board. It seems that recognising and celebrating another Celtic title success would be a step too far for those in the senior positions of BBC Scotland.

On Saturday afternoon Scot Gardiner was given a platform to broadcast his own anger based on WhatsApp chats with employees of two other clubs.

Gardiner seemed to be taking a real personal interest in ensuring that his employers were denied £180,000 in prize money.

Strangely no one in the BBC opted to push Gardiner on the reasons for his deep concerns for Hearts, Partick Thistle and Stranraer. Strange.
