Don’t miss ‘How the League Was Won’ on BBC Scotland, 10.30pm tonight

BBC Scotland at 22.30 tonight has something for us on “How The League Was Won!” I am looking forward to it, and may I suggest it as late night viewing for you? The clips and the trailers have featured our own Pat Bonner, the ruthlessly fair and incisive Michael Stewart (except he didn’t like Carl Starfelt in the League Cup final, remember?), Leanne Crighton who is OK most times and Kenny Miller who is OK some times except when he is with Ally McCoist and feels he has to share in the general clowning and showing off. (Yet you did play for Celtic as well, Kenny!)

The content of course is tailor made for us, but I am intrigued to find out how the BBC will do it. I accused them of dreadful grovelling and sycophancy to (the)Rangers at Seville, but I don’t think they are institutionally anti-Celtic (they once were, when Peter Thompson “Blue Peter” was around) but watch it tonight and see. The BBC tend to side with the winners, I always feel, so can we expect a treat?

Where we can expect a treat will be in the reprise of so many fine games and fine goals this season. It really was a season to remember, for it was the year that we stopped 2 in a row by our opponents. And 10 years out of 11 is not bad going either!

So get home early from the pub or your summer barbecues on the lawn and watch and record this programme with a view to bombarding You Tube with it. We all know in any case that the BBC is about to go ballistic about some kind of platinum something or other, and I have a funny feeling that we might not enjoy that quite as much!
