Bye, Dick.

No matter the replacement, he won’t be long in following the BBC anti Rangers mantra. However, they’re safe in the knowledge that Kenny McIntyre has had plenty to say about certain incidents involving Rangers when pitch side and asked his opinion.

Best news i’ve had in months. Richard Gordon came south from Aberdeen with his Rangers hatred 30ish years ago and has infested Radio Scotland with his bile ever since. The radio waves of Scotland will be fresher, purer and more honest when he goes. Break out the champagne Bears.

Honestly don’t care. Never listen to Radio Scotland at all. For anything. Their football coverage is shite.

If Rangers and the BBC made up I wouldn’t go back to listening. There are better outlets to get your Rangers news.

This was an attempt at dark humour before I have Jackie Bird on the doorstep with a new crew.

I don't want Kenny McIntyre to be a bear. All I want is for every media person in the country to be balanced and utterly impartial. Is that too much to ask?

Hopefully one of the main Rangers haters going in DG but many more left including those 2 off the ball idiots. I still look back at the Scottish BBC media from the 70-90’s and had total respect to all the points of view expressed, but not now. Just toxic and self serving bile served up. This years Scottish Cup final by the BBC was an utter farce.
