'Great to see Rangers letting everyone back in' - Chris Sutton

Rangers and BBC Scotland rekindling their relationship is “great to see”, according to former Celtic player Chris Sutton.

BBC Scotland have endured a fractured relationship with the Light Blues for years after a significant disagreement between the two groups.

However, they have now put aside their differences for the benefit of BBC audiences and Rangers fans, as confirmed by the broadcaster on Wednesday (20 July), news that has pleased Sutton.

Sutton said on Twitter: “Great to see Rangers letting the BBC and everyone back in.”

Relationship back on track?

This will be music to the ears of many in Scotland who have felt the brunt of the fractured relationship between BBC Scotland and Rangers.

BBC Scotland apologised for moments in the past where they have angered the club by not meeting editorial standards, and an apology was also made by Michael Stewart.

The apology was accepted by the club, with a public statement being made on 20 July announcing the continuation of reporting of football matches at Ibrox from this upcoming season.

The news now means that BBC Scotland can continue to report on the club, bringing match reviews and news with balance and – hopefully – fair coverage.

The BBC have announced that they are committed to reporting the Scottish Premiership fairly across all clubs and now Rangers will be allowed the same luxury that other Scottish clubs have been allowed to enjoy.

In other Rangers news, the club have announced that Calvin Bassey has left the club.
