Rangers boycott BBC for 2nd time

BY foxsports • October 18, 2011

Scottish champions Rangers say they are boycotting the BBC ahead of the broadcaster's planned documentary exploring the recent takeover of the club.

The program, entitled ''Rangers - The Inside Story'' and due to be aired on Thursday, investigates what the future might hold under the Glasgow team's new owner Craig Whyte, who completed his takeover in May.

Rangers say the documentary is ''little more than a prejudiced muckraking exercise.''

The BBC rejected the allegation Tuesday, highlighting its ''accuracy and impartiality.''

It's the second time this season that Rangers have boycotted the BBC - they first withdrew co-operation following the broadcaster's report on sectarianism. The BBC apologized to end that impasse.
