BBC Scotland in overdrive with Celtic doom warning

Celtic fans should avoid the BBC Scotland Gossip page this morning if they want to enjoy their weekend.

Even among the talent pool of the state broadcaster which employs Kenny Macintyre, Tom English, Alasdair Lamont, Jane Lewis, Steven Thompson and Neil McCann the Gossip page is gaining notoriety.

At one stage the page was a What The Papers Say type feature but now they have a remit to scan the internet to find negative Celtic stories while painting a glowing picture of issues at Ibrox despite the severe lack of proper trophies to celebrate.

On Friday morning when the closure of Ibrox dominated the football landscape the BBC found two upbeat Ibrox tales to lead the gossip page followed by news that the SFA would make Hampden available should it be required by Phil Clement’s side.

Thursday’s statement from Ibrox confirmed that their stadium WON’T be ready for the start of the season but as ever the state broadcaster likes to downplay any disturbing news from their favourite club.

Even by the low standards of the BBC today is something of a spectacular with not one but five negative Celtic stories leading the Gossip page!

BBC Celtic

The Kyogo story is certainly down to translation issues but with his habit of scoring in the Glasgow Derby it would be party time in Pacific Quay if the striker was to leave Celtic. Seven Derby goals during 2023 finished off Micky Beale and forced Macintyre and English to require grief counselling.

Next up we discover that the new Norwich manager is wanting to assess all of his players before making changes to his squad. As everyone knows, Clement, Beale and van Bronckhorst have all taken the same approach to their Ibrox Revolutions!

Getting desperate the BBC interpret a valuation put on one of Bournemouth’s goalkeepers as bad news for Celtic. Dan Travers is probably one of 30 goalkeepers loosely linked to succeeding Joe Hart.

Scraping the barrel the BBC turn to Thursday quotes from Honduras have have surfaced in The Herald about Luis Palma rounded off by another story of a club linked with signing Roco Vata.

When a current u-21 internationalist id about to become a free agent you tend to find that there is interest in him.

Meanwhile there is no mention of the crisis at Ibrox with no home stadium for next season and no timeline over when the expanded Copland Road Stand will be able to welcome back bears, most of whom have shelled out over £600 for a Season Ticket.

Clement’s serial losers will have a Champions League first leg qualifier on August 6 or 7.

    On today’s ‘exclusively live ‘ BBC Sportsound show from Germany on the radio , we have McIntyre ,Thompson ,McCann , Chrichton , with wee Chic Young and Billy boy Dodds in the studio in Scotland . Not even a token Tim to be heard …anywhere ! Most of the talk has been about ‘ Billy ‘ and how incredible he is ! There has to be some legitimate ways to complain to bosses at the national broadcaster about this ,and receive proper and genuine answers to this ultra favouritism using our money ?

    Same old same old from the BBC. I wonder what the focus of their (largely baseless) daily speculation round up page would be if asbestos was found at Celtic Park and we were looking for a new ground at very short notice, with record Champions’ League money at stake, because one of our directors had screwed up this badly because he was trying to do this on the cheap? Or someone at Dundee had failed to deal with a pitch that was regularly waterlogged.

    I also wonder what Rangers reaction over at the Asbestos Arena would be if we couldn’t play the first home derby of the season because of something like this? Oh wait, no I don’t. It would be statement o’clock with some brogue-wearing bellend banging on about professionalism, unsurpassed dignity etc etc.
