Big Rangers Administration/Liquidation Thread - All chat here!

Recommended Posts

Well, someone’s getting fired at the BBC for going off-message. 

And in Scotland, Rangers went into administration and liquidation in 2012 with the club's assets being bought by a separate company - Sevco Scotland Ltd - which changed its name to The Rangers Football Club Limited .

The team plays in the Scottish Premiership but even today some fans consider the old Rangers FC to be gone forever.

That reads as one of those instances of someone trying to get all view points and not offend, not realising the permaoffended will be offended.
Wonder if it's a boycott, witch hunt, threat to find and administer an attitude adjustment for the writer

Sounds like Graham Spiers. A professional who knows what he is talking about. He has always told the truth about their death. Fair play that man.

Well it's been deleted from the story now, so clearly Jabba has been on the phone to his pals at BBC Scotland asking who would dare write such lies about Sevco...

I'd like to know why the original item (copy at https://web.archive.org/web/20190827220509/https://www.bbc.com/news/newsbeat-49479847) was edited to remove the reference to Rangers' administration and liquidation. I suspect there has been interference from an outside agency and that the BBC have bowed to that pressure. The original article was factual, accurate and informative.

Well done.

Off topic but the BBC has recently been subject to interference in its reporting on other, non-football related,  matters IMO.

Got an answer at last.

You appear never to have received a response to your complaint, submitted in late August, and we’d like to apologise for the long and regrettable delay in writing back to you.

To hopefully address it now, this section was removed from the piece because on reflection, we felt the Rangers case was too detailed and complex to cover in two sentences.

We did not add an update note because this was considered a natural update, which did not materially change the story.

After considering this point again, in light of your complaint, we’ve added an update note to make this amendment clear to readers.

We hope this helps to allay your concerns, and rest assured your complaint was included on our audience feedback report which is circulated to senior management each day. These reports are among the most widely read sources of feedback within the BBC and help inform our ongoing work.

That last paragraph makes me think I'm on some troublemaker list now.

There's a tiny update at the end of the article - which will nobody will read given the article is about 2 months old.

Jesus Christ this is some bizarre paranoia. Weird whether it comes from anyone no matter who they support.

Aimed at a younger age group, yes.  Thought you'd appreciate that.

Except that tiny update, if applied to the BRALT, would have reduced it to about 20 pages with you and @Monkey Tennishaving an argument.

The initial article did not oversimplify the case.

it is essentially simple.

The Beeb probably thought so too but have you seen the number of windows at Pacific Quay?
