Stewart Robertson confirms Rangers talking with BBC in London over dispute

Rangers managing director Stewart Robertson has told the club’s AGM that they are now dealing directly with the BBC in London as the bitter row with BBC Scotland continues unabated.

The Light Blues have been boycotted by the national broadcaster after they withdrew media access to a journalist over a series of false and misleading articles were published.

Since then, BBC Scotland have refused to attend Ibrox, and Robertson confirmed he’s now dealing with their bosses down south.


“We’re now dealing with the BBC in London,” Robertson said, as quoted by The Scotsman.

“We just want coverage to be fair and balanced. We’ve got very good relations with BT, Sky etc.”

The row has gone on for a number of years and it is beyond a joke that the state broadcaster would boycott the biggest club in the country.

Hopefully, there is a resolution soon and it wouldn’t be a surprise if London was to take a dim view of BBC Scotland’s actions towards Rangers in recent years.

The club has every right to expect “fair and balanced” coverage and the quicker it happens, the better for all involved.
