“Nervy, that sounds bitter that” – BBC Scotland rinsed after bitter assessment on Celtic’s win

As others see it, a journalist with no agenda, hidden or otherwise, providing an assessment of the form Celtic have found since losing at Livingston last September. Australian sports writer Sacha Pisani notes this as follows with what is an accurate, fair and measured assessment of the 28 games in the league Celtic lave played without losing and drawing just four times while scoring 64 goals and keeping 16 clean sheets.

Since September’s defeat to Livingston, Celtic 28 games unbeaten in the league.

24W & 4D

In that time, Postecoglou’s side have scored 64 goals & kept 16 clean sheets.

One step closer to Premiership glory for Ange Postecoglou and Celtic.


Compare and contrast to BBC Scotland where the focus was not on any of the above and what yesterday’s win in Dingwall means for the likely destination of the title with Celtic fans having 3 consecutive Sundays at Paradise to look forward to with just one midweek away day up to Tannadice.

Instead they reckoned yesterday was nervy. Did they say that theRangers 3-1 win at Motherwell was nervy after going in at the interval level at 1-1 and being down to ten men?  Maybe they mentioned the latest ‘Penalty to Rangers’ moment for the award that came from an incident that wasn’t even a challenge never mind a foul inside the box?

You don’t need The Celtic Star to tell you the answer to that do you!

Celtic will go into the final Old Firm game of the season six points clear of Rangers in the Scottish Premiership after a nervy win at Ross County.

Tony Hayes hit back at BBC Scotland by showing them the stats they they published on their own website from yesterday’s 2-0 win for Celtic against Ross County…

“Let me fix that for you because you’ve had a shocker here. I would go as far as saying thats the kinda reporting that kills your reputation for everyone in Scotland who’s not a supporter of ‘new rangers’ Celtic totally dominated Only thing changed today is less games left to play.”

“There was only one group of fans “nervy”…and it wasn’t us. (Clue:- a large proportion of them work with the BBC),” Schrodinger’s Cat added.

    • Me too Thomas but no more so that at any other match in a title run-in, including the one at Fir Park the day before. It’s the mindset to use that word rather than focus on the significance of the three points that annoys people. And with the BBC isn’t not a one off.

  1. We expect nothing else from the British Bigoted Corporation.

    If you don’t pay attention to the BBC people will say that you are not informed, however, if you do pay attention to the BBC – you will be misinformed. They are the official perpetrators of lies and misinformation on behalf of the Establishment, helped by the majority of newspapers and subtle intrusions on the small screen.

  2. BBC Scotland Sport/ football has long been a hun empire ( excluding Off the Ball, Stuart & Tam) Anonymous for the most part but Phil Goodlad leads the way on Good Morning Scotland. Wasting your time complaining but sometimes you just want to let fly!
    ‘nervy Celtic fans’? Perhaps, but understandable.
    We’ve got a cushion should a result or two not give us maximum points.
    That mob has none. They’re not really nervous as they haven’t got a scuby in catching us.
    Put them to the sword next game Celic and let the party begin! hail, hail


  3. To be honest there were plenty of nerves in my house in the very early hours of Monday morning while watching the second half! And from the messages I was getting on my phone I was not the only one!
    On reflection it was a comfortable enough win but at the time when I first saw the BBC headline it seemed to fit with what I had been feeling myself.
