BBC journalist Tom English has got history with Rangers. 

After reports of Rangers fans getting crushed as they queued to get into the Kilmarnock game on the opening day of the season, English tweeted, “Trapped outside Rugby Park…’ Trapped outside? This is execrable stuff.”

A complaint about his tweet was upheld by the broadcasters.

Gers SLO Greg Marshall demanded an apology from the BBC Scotland journalist.

He was at it again on Thursday after the Times bombshell about HRMC potentially billing Rangers £50m too much in a move that led to the club being liquidated and relegated to the fourth tier of Scottish football.

In his tweet, English said, “If I’m reading BDO’s documents correctly the revised tax bill stands at £68.3m. Correct me if I’m wrong. In those circumstances, blaming an HMRC ‘blunder’ for the implosion that wrecked Rangers could be considered, er, a bit of a reach.”

The Times report stated that the actual bill owed by Rangers could have been as little as £20m, which could have had huge implications for the future of the club back then.

Rangers fans have reacted to English’s tweet with scorn if little surprise…
