BBC issue apology to Rangers after years of 'disagreement', will resume coverage

BBC have issued a public apology to Rangers for not meeting their editorial standards in the past and the two parties have agreed to resume their relationship.

Rangers and the BBC have been involved in a feud for years, with the light blues unhappy at the level of reporting against their club by the broadcasters, which led to Rangers not allowing them to cover the club fully.

But in a statement released on July 20, the BBC have communicated a public apology and revealed that they have agreed with Rangers to put the feud behind them and move forward to be able to give fans the best coverage possible.

In a statement shared on Twitter, the BBC said; “A disagreement between BBC Scotland and Rangers FC has limited the BBC’s ability to report from Ibrox Stadium over a long period of time.

“The BBC and Rangers FC have now agreed that it is in the best interests of the BBC’s audiences and Rangers supporters everywhere for the BBC and the club to resolve the dispute and to provide the fullest possible coverage of all Rangers’ matches.

“The BBC is committed to reporting the Scottish Premiership fully and fairly across all clubs. However, it recognises that the club has genuine concerns about the accuracy and balance of some coverage.

“The BBC acknowledges that there have been occasions when parts of the coverage of Rangers FC have not met its editorial standards. It has apologised for those instances and is happy to repeat those apologies now.

“We now look forward to a positive ongoing relationship with the club.”


It’s about time the BBC openly acknowledged their bias against Rangers in their coverage and issued a public apology for it.

We already know we’re not the most popular club in the world, but that doesn’t mean lies should be told and reports should always be negative which they were for a long time.

The club stayed firm in their beliefs and have finally got the apology they craved and deserved, and now everyone can move forward from the issue.

The BBC is one of the biggest broadcasters in the UK so having them back at Ibrox will only help the club with generating a bigger audience, and that’s a positive.

After an excellent run in Europe last year, and now getting the BBC to apologise, we are en route to becoming an even bigger club than ever before.
