'Fake news', 'Sad' - Rangers fans react to BBC journalist U-turn over Morelos bids

BBC Scotland reporter Kheredine Idessane was forced to apologise to Rangers on Thursday after claiming “sources close to” Beijing Renhe had told him no bid had been made for Gers striker Alfredo Morelos.
A few hours after claiming no bid had been made, the reporter quickly took to Twitter to “retract and correct” his earlier post on his personal Twitter account.


Sky Sports claimed the Gers had rejected as much as £8million for the 21-year-old striker who has hit the net 13 times since arriving from HJK Helsinki for £1million in the summer.
With more than a bit of tension between Rangers fans and the BBC, the Light Blues’ support was loving seeing Idessane have to apologise over his mistake.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:


BBC Scotland have refused to send any staff to Ibrox to cover games since chief football reporter Chris McLaughlin had his press access revoked over a series of false and inflammatory articles.
Morelos is the top goalscorer in the Scottish Premiership so far this season and has been in fantastic for the Gers since arriving at Ibrox.
The 21-year-old is under contract with the Gers until 2020 and the Ibrox giants will be desperate to keep hold of the prolific hitman for as long as possible.
Morelos was an unused substitute in Wednesday’s 3-0 Scottish Cup fourth round win over Fraserburgh but will almost certainly come back into the starting XI when the Gers face Neil Lennon’s Hibs in the Scottish Premiership on Saturday afternoon.
