‘Outstanding’ Did really well’ ‘more to come’ Gushing BBC Scotland are all over Micky Beale’s tactical masterclass

BBC Scotland were in their element last night as their saturation coverage of the SPFL Premiership runners up paid off.

Watching nervously in the TV Studio in Glasgow with Jonathan ‘Dundee United fan’ Sutherland was Neil McCann and Alan Hutton who are more used to sharing a studio at Ibrox with Emma Dodds.

Steven Charisma Thompson presented from the stadium, Liam MacLeod produced some useless stats accompanied by some commentary with James McFadden as co-commentator. For balance Jane Lewis was pitchside for pre and post match interviews.

Over on Radio Scotland Kenny Macintyre was all kitted out for the big game with Kevin Thomson giving him an insight into what it is like with the lads in the dressing room before a huge match.

The half-time panic was replaced by post-match delight as James Tavernier came to the rescue of the expensive forwards that never looked like scoring.

Apparently there is more to come from Danilo, well you’d certainly hope so if you had shelled out £5.5m while ditching Alfredo Morelos and Antonio Colak while looking to score goals in European ties.

The former Feyenoord striker somehow managed to miss an open goal late in the first half that was in the Peter van Vossen category.

After an hour he was replaced by Cyriel Dessers who headed over from six yards out then struck the post when presented with a one-on-one from 10 yards away from goal.

With the state broadcaster more on-message than ever with the Ibrox regime last night’s draw is being portrayed as a tactical masterclass from the rookie Ibrox boss.

Next week against PSV Eindhoven the serious broadcasters move in leaving the BBC with some radio coverage while the licence payer stumps up for the expenses claims from some very elite Geneva restaurants.
