Cowardly BBC Sport

You have to marvel at the anonymous sports writing of the state broadcaster, BBC. In the last hour they released a story covering the midweek football in the Scottish Premiership.

The piece isn’t aimed entirely at Celtic, however they begin the article by covering the Champions first. Within that, they focus entirely on Leigh Griffiths.

Having recently come back from a lengthy period out with his career and personal life being under scrutiny by a savage media, he had to endure some negative comments from Sky Sports’ Kris Boyd during the live show on Wednesday night. Upon scoring the second goal of the win at Kilmarnock, Griffiths responded in kind to the former Killie forward aloft in his studio punditry position in the stadium.

The criticism Griffiths had taken was underhand. As a mental health advocate, Boyd should have known better.

Then Griffiths had to deal with the Killie fans upon being substituted. This is where the BBC’s piece was solely focussed on.

Bad enough that Boyd was giving a comeback player grief live on TV, now the BBC were wading in with both feet. Whoever wrote this piece obviously felt that it was worthy to centre on the Celtic striker’s discipline rather than his return to the game.

Never mind the fact he had been out for a long time with personal issues which have been speculated on by the media. If Griffiths was out of order, which he wasn’t, then I would understand making the story about that.

It’s not as though he gestured to the crowd with a throat-slitting motion. No, he’s thrown a flimsy bit of rolled up tape he was wearing during match play.

The crowd were on his back and the Celtic bench came to his defence. Indeed, the abuse was said to have been unwarranted but the writer of this article has not stated as much.

The three paragraphed blurb entitled “Menacing Griffiths must maintain discipline” has all the hallmarks of Tom English. Throw in a compliment or two before taking the subject down.

It’s a totally unnecessary piece from the establishment. Once again, our club and it’s players receive some absolute nonsense reporting by the Scottish media.

Scotland’s media are an law unto themselves and a total embarrassment to our country.

Hail! Hail!

  1. I agree wholeheartedly the Scottish press especially the Daily Record are so anti Celtic it is beyond a joke .Players around the league can pretend to put guns to their heads, make throat slitting gestures but a piece of sock tape which is according to them is a serious deadly weapon in.a Celtic players hand and has the ability to kill someone at 20paces it’s tragic.
    Maybe the Kilmarnock police will jail him for assault with a deadly weapon AN ABSOLUTE F——ING JOKE

  2. I grew up in Ayrshire in the 1960-70 .. against a backdrop of the events in NI … it was a pretty unwelcoming place for a Scottish catholic ….. I thought for a while things had become less toxic in Bonnie Scotland … but with the demise of RFC and the regurgitated TRFC … it’s worse … the establishment has been found to be bankrupt morally and financially…the story is not Griffiths or tape … it is anti catholic bigotry… loaded with anti Irish racism … this article and all others with the same pish, stem from that .

    • This has never changed. Scottish journalism is a joke everywhere. Small minds in a small country. We are hated by the majority just as much as we were 100 years ago. They just wrap it up in poor journalism in their newspapers. F*** them. Here we go……

  6. Are you for real? Morelos makes a gesture and gets hung out to dry. Griffiths literally throws something at the crowd, but that’s no where near as bad as a gesture. Get a grip of yourself clown. Griffiths should be hung out to dry like morelos would be. Anything short of that is a scandal. Take your green tinted specks off idiot.
