‘Small margins’ ‘Dominated possession’ ‘denied by VAR’ Derek Clark Bingo comes to Radio Scotland

Derek Clark graced a BBC Scotland podcast to apply some soothing gloss over events at Ibrox for the state broadcaster.

Affectionately known on social media as Specky, Clark is the face of the Rangers Review after switching his allegiance from Hamilton Accies.

For three years the Rangers Review has been reassuring subscribers and You Tube viewers that all is well at Ibrox, good times are around the corner after appointing the right manager and running away with the 2021, 2022 and 2023 Close Season Cup.

This year even that trophy is in doubt with a raft of unknown project signings unable to lift the gloom created by the aftermath of Celtic’s domestic double being followed by the resignation of CEO James Bisgrove and the closure of Ibrox.

Despite all of the evidence Clark is in upbeat mood, last season’s haul of one point out of 12 against an under strength Celtic was all down to small margins, disallowed goals and bad luck despite dominating each match.

Typically, host Iona Ballantyne refused to step in to correct or challenge the claims made by Clark, effectively giving them the approval of BBC Scotland.

The delayed construction work is virtually off the agenda at BBC Scotland despite being based a 10 minute walk away from the Copland Crane.

In June they were able to send over a cast of dozens to cover Scotland’s three matches at the European Championships but it seems that no one can put any questions to the Ibrox board about where home matches will be played and when Ibrox will reopen.

It is a fairly simple task, if there is no answer within 24 hours they can run with the ‘refused to comment’ line and published the unanswered questions.

That would put their cosy relationship at risk, the soft soap treatment delivered utterly pointless interviews with Jack Butland, Todd Cantwell and Phil Clement following a so-called fall out that lasted seven years.

After yesterday’s special appearance Clark will be hoping for future pay days alongside the broadcasting pygmies that include Kenny Macintyre, Tom English, Alasdair Lamont, Jane Lewis, Steven Thompson, Kenny Miller, Rory Loy, Cammy Bell and Neil McCann.
