A SCOTTISH TEAM TOPS EUROPEAN LEAGUE GROUP FOR FIRST TIME IN DECADES BUT BBC Scotland LOOKs AWAY

When was the last time a Scottish football team topped any group in any European football competition? 40 years ago? See how BBC Scotland celebrated? Bottom left, put your specs on.

Glasgow Rangers have just done it against pretty reasonable competition:

Table

Only 4 points dropped!? Surely that’s big news in this country?

I know, quite a lot of Rangers fans wouldn’t like the Tusker. Some think like Murdo Fraser, they’re the ‘Queen’s Eleven‘ and a few ran through George Square recently shouting abuse at anti-racists but many, most (?) are just football supporters.

According to a Daily Record poll in 2014, around half voted YES!

I’ve been really impressed with their play this year, driven forward by former Bairn, Scott Arfield.

The BBC and Rangers have a past of course with Rangers banning BBC reporter Chris McLaughlin and the BBC retaliating by boycotting Rangers. Reminds me of the Cold War or is it the playground?

Come on! Credit where credit is due!

  1. I used to watch the ‘Gers regularly, but stopped when I found myself beside Scottish supporters wearing England kits.
    I stopped going, and even turned down the use of a season ticket (the owner had to work every week-end).
    I no longer miss it, and NOW the England kit would be appropriate (along with kits from anywhere, really).
    Scottish football is miles behind, with little money, few players and the “good old days” (when every Scottish team had at least one really GOOD player) are never coming back.

    1. Gavin ? . . Gavin. . . The SPFL is a cracking league, there’s stiff competition from top to bottom. There Is number of really talented Scottish youngsters that have come through in recent years, look at our international team. Listenning to footy programmes the talent pipeline is working well. If Celtic had played more of their local talent they wouldn’t be in the mess they are in now.

      Radio Scotland 10 am news sports section is giving Rangers credit. That’ll be after reading this morning’s Tusker.

  2. I believe that the ‘Tic topped their group last year!

    However, credit where it is due, because the Gers have had a significant run and are the first Scottish club for 30years to go through a group unbeaten.

    Meanwhile, at Firhill, we are getting a bit shaky about whether we can get out of the third division any year soon!!!
