This morning’s massive news that Rangers have restored full cooperation with the BBC after an official apology from the Beeb is seismic, and has come with an overwhelmingly negative reaction from most Rangers fans.
We will be clear on Ibrox Noise, and be tone deaf and out of touch with fans – we are 100% in favour of this decision from the club, and while we will never be friends with those at Pacific Quay, it serves Rangers’ best interests to have them back at the club fully reporting on our content and speaking to our people.
Because, unlike you and I, not every Rangers fan can afford BT and Sky or Premier, and they deserve the right to be able to see what Gio and the team has to say about things, and the BBC are the only way they can do that.
In short, the BBC are free (scam license fee aside) to air and this gives increased coverage for our supporters both here and worldwide.
Look, do you like Sky or BT any better?
Sky especially have done some blatantly anti-Rangers things in recent years, and have been completely slaughtered by fans, but few complain about Luke Shanley or formerly Charles Paterson outside (or inside) Ibrox reporting on us and speaking to Gio.
The BBC are no different, and this decision has been made in the interests of the club and our fans, especially those unable to get full access to the club via more expensive methods.
We don’t like or support the BBC, but we do like and support our club and fans, and it’s in the interest of us this feud ended.
It’s time to move on.
