Club 1872 commented yesterday on the disparity in coverage and comment on the issue of unacceptable behaviour but as our members and the wider fanbase are aware, there has been an ongoing issue with BBC Scotland for a much longer period of time.
In discussions with Rangers on this topic we became aware that, as recently as this week, BBC Scotland had extensively edited an interview with Rangers spokesperson, Jim Traynor, which diluted the club’s position on the extent of the ongoing problem with Pacific Quay. We felt it would be helpful for supporters to hear more about the club’s position and what would have been articulated had BBC Scotland delivered a properly balanced news report on the subject.
You can view an interview with Jim Traynor on the subject here:
Supporters have a role to play in ensuring that BBC Scotland start to treat our club fairly. We recently issued media guidance to help in this regard, and the coverage of Steve Clarke and Kris Boyd’s comments has only further illustrated the deep seated issue with elements of the Scottish media and particularly BBC Scotland.
We will continue to fight the supporters’ corner in these matters but the more individual supporters who assist us, the more successful those efforts will be.
