The BBC have just asked Giovanni van Bronckhorst their first question as Rangers manager, as Kenny Macintyre took part in the boss’s conference for the first time.

The Beeb and Rangers’ feud is now over, meaning Pacific Quay are now welcome again at Ibrox, and they were only too happy to take part in their first press conference for well over 7 years.

Macintyre was the first BBC journalist to have been engaged directly with the club for easily a generation, and his question was gentle, asking Gio if he felt his squad was now stronger than before the window opened.

We neither welcome nor object to this – it should have been the case the entire time, but for childishness from the club along with biased coverage from the broadcaster to prevent it.

Both have now sorted their differences out and we can hopefully expect fair content from them from now on.

We can’t deny though, it was certainly strange hearing ‘bbc’ at our presser.

Surreal times!

  1. The BBC may be back but let’s hope the standard of question improves. Having just signed 7 new players it was really stupid to ask Gio if he thought his squad was stronger. What answer did he expect Gio to give?

  2. That Rangers hating clown Michael Stewart has been incredibly quiet on Twitter, l think the Beeb have told him to pipe down and stay in his box
