Two Ibrox stories are out of bounds for shameless BBC Scotland

There are three big stories in Scottish football today but for their own reasons two of them seem to be out of bounds to BBC Scotland.

The signing of Yuki Kobayashi by Celtic is given prominence, some very very early transfer news with the registration window still more than a month away.

Dominating many of the back pages and websites today was the attacks on Douglas Park by Dave King. There are a number of angles and options on this story, the sports team at the state broadcaster have decided that the story is best ignored.

It is the sort of policy that promotes talents like Tom English and Kenny Macintyre to the top of the tree, to describe them as mediocre is a compliment that neither deserves as they answer the rallying calls from Gorgie Road and Edmiston Drive.

Later this afternoon The Sun revealed that Hummel are in court with a £9.5m claim against the Ibrox Tribute Act for breach of contract.

Again there is silence from that state broadcaster. If a newspaper can uncover the story through court documents with their massive resources BBC Scotland should be able to cover the story in depth, or at least acknowledge it.

On Saturday Kenny Mac will be joined on Sportsound by Neil McCann, Kevin Thomson, Maurice Ross, Kenny Miller, Richard Forster and Steven Thompson to discuss specially selected feel-good stories including an in-depth feature on Micky Beale.

  • Robert Downey says:

    The BBC are gutless, they are afraid of upsetting the establishment club in Scotland, WHY?
    My take on it is they are part of the brotherhood.
    And are being warned off.
    They are a shower of COWARDS.
