CELTIC have gone 12 points clear at the top after another win at the weekend while they’re nearest rivals managed a battling point in Perth.
The BBC Sportscene highlight show had a distinct lack of impartiality with two former Ibrox players sitting on the panel. However, even the two men on the panel; Neil McCann and Steven Thompson could put a positive spin on Steven Gerrard’s title hopes. However, Neil McCann flippantly threw out a comment which because of who he was sitting with, wasn’t challenged.
The former Dundee manager wasn’t hopeful of an Ibrox title win but he did point out there were two ‘Old Firm’ games left that you wouldn’t put past the Ibrox club of winning. Just casually throwing it out there with not the semblance of a challenge on the matter.
“There are still two old firm games to go, and you wouldn’t put it past Rangers of winning those” McCann said.
BBC go out their way to have varying points of view on their programming, to the point they’ve got people on TV just telling lies because it’s the opposite opinion of someone stating facts. They don’t feel the need to do this on Sportscene and have punished impartial pundit Michael Stewart for calling out the Ibrox spin machine.
