Rangers fans didn’t enjoy BBC Scotland highlighting one specific part of the recent Scottish Youth Cup final win against Celtic.
Footage showed Kai Kennedy suffering an injury and being dragged off the pitch by young Hoops defender Liam Morrison, only to smartly shuffle back on in an attempt to delay the game.
Why the broadcaster deemed to necessary to pick up on such a trivial piece of play in an otherwise thrilling and joyous youth final is beyond me.
The young Gers won the match 3-2, the first time we’ve won the trophy for five years, after a brilliant 90 minutes full of skill and exciting potential talents.
Is it really necessary to eke out every single bit of potential controversy out of a match, especially at a lower age level?
Rangers supporters haven’t taken kindly to it, believing that BBC Scotland have badly got their judgement wrong on this one.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
What is the purpose of your tweet ? Poor discipline ? Laying hands on an opponent and dragging them about? Poor sportsmanship? Entitlement and belief you should win automatically and tantrums if you dont ? Not seeing your angle here, only BBC Scotland and nutters buy into this

Who writes this tripe? Honestly beggars belief the standard of journalistic talent in Scotland.

Good plan…let’s put something on twitter to ensure that a young player gets lots of abuse. What a way to support young Scottish talent.

5 great goals, some brilliant future talent on show, excellent skills,last minute drama with a goal chopped off and a missed penalty. The game had everything….but aye BBC, just you concentrate on a tiny we tussle between 2 battling players that lasted 40 seconds. Fucking morons
