BBC Scotland has decided to ignore the booing from members of the Tartan Army during the Minute of Applause ahead of last night’s match against Ukraine.

Celtic fans have been in the firing line over the last week for their reaction to the death of a 96-year-old with the SFA on egg-shells ahead of last night’s Nations League tie.

Ian Maxwell left the explanation for the Minute of Applause to Steve Clarke with the negative reaction predicted by many. Had they expected 100% compliance the SFA would have gone for the traditional Minute’s Silence.

Across social media there was plenty of reaction to the booing with most newspapers also on the case.

BBC Scotland’s morning gossip round-up managed to avoid any reference to the issue, they picked up on 10 stories with the first two coming from on-message Ibrox fansite The Rangers Review.

    PATHETIC the media staying silent on this when all they did was run down Celtic for the same thing last week.
    Typical BENNYS fronting the media and TV.

  • the maister says:

    You are a bit of a “Benny” yourself, Scud (your term)! Mis-calling bigots and racists only gives them the oxygen of respectability, which they are not entitled to and which helps to disguise the true nature of their politics and beliefs.
    Your nomeclature is an Iraqi missile used in the Gulf War. I take it that you have a military connection, British perhaps?! You are definitely an apologist for the the bigots and the racists in this part of the world, giving them the cloak of naivety in order to disguise their true intentions and beliefs. Is that why you are on here almost every day?

    • Scud Missile says:

      Oh dear we have another BENNY in the ranks.

    • Scud Missile says:

      Lol it’s good you have taken notice of me I must be doing something right if I have rattled your cage.
      Your very judgemental for someone who doesn’t know me,but hey that’s your opinion which are like ARSEHOLES everybody has one.

    Welcome to the North Korea News Network where everyone and anyone must mourn the passing of the head of state. No dissension or deviation from this will be allowed. If it happens it won’t be reported.

  • the maister says:

    You obviously don’t like scrutiny Scud. A good laugh, maybe? How is it “Good” that I “Have Taken Notice of You” and how am I being judgemental? Do you think nobody reads your posts, or they don’t have an opinion of them? You think I am an idiot as well? Your phrase “In The Ranks” along with your nomenclature suggests you are a military sort. British military, Scud? A “Terrorist” hunter, perhaps! It seems to me it is you who is in a cage and it has been rattled. You can’t call bigots and racists out as idiots or as being the equivalent of some fictional foolish character. Get real Scud! And you didn’t learn your really BIG word in the Bible, now did you?

  • Scud Missile says:

    Lol looks like I’m living inside your head,your obviously not a happy chappy,cheer yourself up and take a chill pill you’ll feel better for it.
    Don’t worry or panic about things Scud will keep you in line.

  • Scud Missile says:

    Maybe I should send the TROOPS out with a search party to find the maister he has gone very quiet,a bit like the other bigots,McMoist Sourness and the rest of the klan.

  • Scud Missile says:

    Infamy infamy they all have it infamy.
    Remember maister,it is mind over matter,I don’t mind and you don’t matter.

  • the maister says:

    Have you’s got it?!
