Well what a difference a truce makes. Only a couple of weeks after the BBC and Rangers finally their long-running feud, the coverage of last night’s epic win over Union Saint is all over the Beeb and is being rightly lauded with various snippets towards it.
Indeed, headlines fill the rafters of praise towards the crowd, the manager, the team and this is exactly the coverage our club deserves from the national broadcaster which is supposed to support all teams equally.
We hardly like them, but if Celtic achieved this, as much as we’d avoid it completely as Rangers fans, we’d expect the Beeb to be all over that too – ditto Hibs, or Aberdeen, and indeed, Dundee Utd’s stunning win over AZ was rightly lauded by Pacific Quay.
Only a few weeks ago, anything Rangers was taboo, but since the ceasefire the whole tone has changed.
We don’t expect pro-Rangers bias from the BBC, and indeed that’s unlikely to happen, but we just wanted fairness.
A broadcaster we all pay for, legally obliged, and therefore state-funded, has a duty to be fair to all groups and organisations it covers. And for too long, Rangers were not afforded that privilege.
Since the two made up though, Rangers have been much more constructively and fairly covered, and that’s all we wanted in the first place.
There’s only one thing that remains – a pro-Rangers article from Chris McLaughlin.
