If it was Liverpool or Manchester United he’d be out a job but TNT Sports give McCoist their full backing

On Tuesday morning Ally McCoist told TalkSPORT listeners about his plan to commit Hate Crimes on Sunday at Ibrox. Alongwith 48,000 others in case anyone was in any doubt.

At the Etihad Stadium last night TNT Sport had McCoist on co-commentator duties with Absolutely Fletch, Absolutely as they presented live coverage of the EPL match between Manchester City and Aston Villa.

For the best part of two days McCoist has been trending on social media, most Scottish media outlets quickly picked up on his TalkSPORT promise which provided them with plenty of content in the build up to Sunday’s Glasgow Derby.

TMT Sports has a high profile on Twitter/X with two million followers, they were well aware of McCoist’s comments, the purpose of their social media accounts is to draw attention and to be trending. But surely not for the reasons that the former Rangers manager has been trending.

Regularly social media issues set the agenda for the mainstream in England. Sickening video clips of chants and gestures from the recent Manchester United v Liverpool FA Cup tie led to Police charges.

Last night there was no apology or explanation from TNT Sports as they introduced McCoist to their viewers, the seriousness of his Hate promise can be gauged by his hurried decision not to go to Ibrox on Sunday.

Judging by the excitement and expectation in his voice on Tuesday morning that decision wasn’t taken lightly, clearly something major like a threat to his multiple broadcasting deals forced his retreat.

There is no wriggle room away from:

We’ve got a hate bill, by the way. A hate bill has been passed in the country. And I can guarantee you, next Sunday at Ibrox, I, along with 48,000 will be committing a breach of that hate bill in the particular Rangers vs Celtic game we are all going to. It is madness.

Although he will now be spending quality time with his second family McCoist has quite clearly given his approval to the 48,000 who will be sharing their chants and songs of hate towards Catholics and Irish people.

And by providing McCoist with a platform last night, without an apology or explanation by extension TNT Sports are quite comfortable with the comments of their co-commentator from the previous day.

ITV and Amazon are other media firms that pay for the thoughts and opinions of the former Rangers striker, assistant manager and manager.
