Sky Sports News this morning had Gary McKay-Steven signing for Aberdeen in 2015, played 31 games for us and scored 5 goals.  Makes me wonder if anything about the story of him speaking to New York is accurate. Abysmal stuff from Sky as usual outwith the you know who two.

Edit - they’re at it again just now on their yellow infobar. Derek McInnes wins Manager of the Month award for December with eight wins. Unbelievable!

Give the guy a break - he's quite capable of getting 8 wins in a month...

BBC Scotland promoting English football on the Scottish Football page again...

I wouldn't care if Ryan Fraser had scored a hat-trick for Bournemouth today.  I'd wish they'd stick to covering games only involving Scottish clubs on this section of their site.

He's taking offence to the story about Scotland international Erin Cuthbert scoring for Chelsea being in the "Scottish football" section of the BBC website.

Pish. Scottish player scores double in big game in top league, but reading it as a scottish football site promoting English fitba. Right.

big game in top league, 

An absolutely massive London derby in one of world football's leading leagues*, as the 3019 attendance shows.  

 

*Taken from internal BBC memo, probably.

That is “ex-rangers” player, not “dundee united” (who he had a short term contract with at the time of the incident)

To be fair, Mohsni is best known in Scotland for his time/hilarious meltdown at Rangers so I think it's a fair enough use.

Also, the reason "ex-Celtic/Rangers" gets used for headlines even when the player is better known for playing with other clubs is so that it shows up on search engines because - unfortunately - folk are searching for those two more often than any other teams. Same reason retired players get referred to as "Rangers/Celtic legend"; just trying to get more clicks.

Even as a Celtic fan i find this blog to be ultra cringey, of all the Celtic blogs this is by far the most paranoid.

My mate posts stuff from it on Facebook. I thought it was a parody page.

There's a "Scottish cup shocks" quiz on the BBC the now, and for at least two of the ten questions, the answer is given away or narrowed down - to anyone with a basic knowledge of Scottish fitba - by the accompanying picture. Useless ignorant dicks.

And at the other end of the scale, their current "where do the teams play" quiz is nigh on impossible. You've got to find the location to within a cm on the map.

The ex-Bigot stuff was going on long before the internet appeared.
