Cammy Bell and Ian Hogg resign after Ragners controversy
Cammy Bell and Ian Hogg have both resigned from the Heart and Hand podcast following another Rangers controversy this week.
According to the Daily Record, Police Scotland are now investigating “hate-filled” Tweets sent by the accounts of the Bears new “media partner.”
David Edgar, using the official Twitter account shared that he was “gutted” to see both step back from the outlet on Friday.
Heart and Hand shared the first statement of Hogg on their official Twitter account this afternoon following the news.
“With regards the newspaper article of historic tweets across a number of years, I acknowledge that certain language and terminology have been used that is clearly unacceptable and sincerely apologise,” he wrote.
“The only excuse I can make is from a place of immaturity, stupidity and without intended malice. However that is no excuse, the fault is mine, and I need to rebuild the trust that others had in me.
“I need to be better. With immediate effect I will be stepping back from Heart and Hand.”
Following that, Bell also left the podcast, labelling the interests of themselves and their families as the reasons.
For the best.
This is in the best interest of everyone involved.
It doesn’t look great for Rangers, who could now face a big storm in the coming days should they not break their silence.
The outlet has apologised and sought legal advice which told them these posts don’t pass the threshold for further action.
That still doesn’t make them acceptable, and it will bring the question mark of why they replaced the mainstream media in the first place.
Something needs to be done, and we could also see yet another change to the Ibrox media policy as the unwanted storm hangs above the club.
