A Scottish football journalist has called for Rangers and Celtic to allow a “fly-on-the-wall” Netflix style documentary ahead of their Hampden Betfred Cup Final clash.
Writing for the Daily Record, Michael Gannon has suggested that Scottish football opens it’s doors to the cameras and gives us a sneak peek of what happens behind closed doors.
Starting with the Old Firm final at Hampden in just over a fortnight’s time, Gannon believes that an insight into the dressing rooms of both sides would be box office.
It’s an interesting suggestion and not the first time it’s been levied concerning Rangers over the years.
Following the success of numerous fly-on-the-wall Football series, including those involving Man City, Sunderland and Leeds United, the idea of one concerning Rangers’ rise is tantalising.
It, of course, would have to culminate in the Ibrox side winning the Scottish Premiership title.
It’s not like this kind of thing hasn’t been done up here either. RangersTV has developed considerably in recent seasons and is feeling the benefit of a higher focus.
Inside Ibrox and Away Days provide a fly-on-the-wall look at life for Rangers, their staff and their players on matchdays and it’s a superb insight into how things work at Ibrox.
Hearts have also announced plans for the release of a special BBC Scotland produced documentary series named “Inside Tynecastle” which will chronicle the events of the 19/20 season.
As for one which shows both sides of Old Firm final day, it’s hard to argue against the idea that it’d make enthralling viewing.
