Rangers legend Ian Durrant reveals Neil Simpson stand-off as he readies himself for further knee surgery

Sounds very dramatic.  What happened when the two of them came face to face?

Ah, just another click bait headline.

Last time it was a Stand On tbf

It's absolutely tragic that Durrant only won 10 more trophies after Neil Simpson ended his career.

Pick your combined Edinburgh derby XI. Featuring Demetri Mitchell, who doesn't play for Hearts, right back Jamie Brandon as a striker and a Hearts badge which was a concept designed during the Chris Robinson era which was never made official.

Thought that said terrible news instead of transfer news.

BBC have a "what does your club need" article. 

Apparently our defence has improved since Jason Kerr returned from injury.

Jason Kerr hasnt missed a single minute of league football this season.

Good opening paragraph in this article, didn't even get the score correct.  https://www.thenational.ae/sport/football/vincent-kompany-a-link-with-manchester-city-s-past-and-the-future-1.963758

Quote

Vincent Kompany had his eye on two fixtures at the weekend. On Saturday, in front of a sparse crowd in southern Spain, his Anderlecht played out a 0-0 draw with Scotland’s Livingston, part of their winter break schedule.

Pity this fecker didn't keep his eye on the score*, it was 1-1, but at least he didn't put an E on the end of our name.

 

*Check out the name of the guy that wrote the article too. :lol:

“Dundee v Motherwell: Hosts bid to end 90-year wait for Cup win.” 

Apparently 2020 minus 1910 = 90. The gap is even mentioned in the article itself.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51084018

Also says it would be their first final in 16 years after their last appearance in 2003.

ETA Now changed. Somebody at the BBC must have found a calculator

More likely someone from outside told them it was wrong.

BBC are on fire.

Hearts' last three games against Rangers are a 5-0 defeat at Ibrox, a 3-0 defeat at Hampden and a 1-1 draw at Tynecastle.

It's strange wording that makes the meaning not super obvious but they aren't incorrect there. They are saying that we've scored at least 3 against you in 3 out of the last 4 meetings so including all the ones this season plus the 1-3 at Tynecastle in April 2019.

Terrible journalism either way you look at it.

Not sure how you're getting that? It says in the article that Rangers have put at least three goals past them in the last four games, not three of the last four. Unless they've changed the online article.
