After a season in which they have insulted the manager, downplayed his impact on the team and annoyed us at every turn, until they were finally forced to confront some home truths, the BBC is finally doing something positive for us by showing a documentary on Friday night about how the turnaround happened and the league was won.
Frankly, it’s the least they can do for us after the nonsense we’ve had to put up with from them all season long. If it wasn’t attacking our club it was the ceaseless praising of Ibrox, and the number of ex-Ibrox players they have on the staff.
No other company – including the club itself – can have so many of its former players on the payroll. BBC Scotland can say whatever it wants in defence of that, but when the public broadcaster hires so many individuals representing one point of view its coverage becomes clearly biased and you don’t have to look too closely to see how that’s manifested itself.
Called “How The League Was Won”, the show will air at half past ten tomorrow night and will be available thereafter on IPlayer. They did the same last season when the Ibrox club won the title, by the way, so this isn’t us getting special treatment.
Not that I imagine any of you thought that it was.
The show will feature some friends of the club and some neutrals like Michael Stewart. It should be thoroughly entertaining and it is about time that the broadcaster remembered that its audience isn’t solely made up of the Ibrox fan base which hates them anyway.
And this is what I’ve never understood about the BBC; they are despised by the supporters over there, and still pander to them at every turn. They will doubtless howl about tomorrow’s show, but they wail about everything.
