Michael Stewart will be kept off BBC programming until the broadcaster is certain his Jim Traynor row will not be repeated.

Stewart was taken off TV and radio by the Beeb after he took a swipe at Rangers PR chief Traynor in a blistering Sportsound rant two weeks ago.

Despite regularly appearing on their output, Stewart has since been removed from Sportscene's football highlights as well as their other forms of broadcasting. No return date has been set.

Now, according to the Scottish Sun, the BBC will continue to keep Stewart off their channels until they can guarantee it won't happen again. "Our editorial guidelines were not adhered to on Sportsound," a spokesperson told the publication. "We’re still in discussions to ensure there’s no repeat of that in future.

"While those discussions continue, Michael Stewart will not appear on any of our sports programmes."

Stewart sparked the row with comments he made about Traynor regarding 'releasing stories to the press' as well as issues surrounding wanting proof that Alfredo Morelos was racially abused.

He was taken off air just hours before he was set to go live at Tynecastle before BT Sport stepped in and asked him to be part of their coverage of celtic's trip to Motherwell.

Only way to guarantee that is to keep him off air permanently, at a loss to no-one.

it's astonishing more hasn't been made of that aspect of his comments in this day and age.

At the moment in Scotland sadly it’s really not astonishing, but it very much should be...

It's impossible to imagine a Jamie Carragher or Gary Neville sitting in a Sky studio discussing allegations of racism saying things like :

 

"If you're going to make claims like that you need to have evidence... WHERE'S THE EVIDENCE?" 

 

It's not an exaggeration to say it'd be front page news.  

 

Foreby anything else, his comments were just ridiculous.  For his point to be valid he'd need to be suggesting that Alfredo has NEVER been racially abused.  I doubt there's any person of colour living in this county who has never encountered racism, let alone a high profile footballer.

Yet in Scotland you can write “If you cant take the vitriol, you are in the wrong city” which is lets face it, is just a different way of saying “go back to where you came from”, which would involve police action anywhere in the UK (even Scotland but only if said to a player from one shameless yet shameful team).

Knowing the mheejah here now and especially bbc jacobite  I’ll be very surprised if michael braveheart of brigadoom isn’t reinstated at some stage probably under the auspices of the gollum mickglaughlin Everyone Anyone except Rangers agenda.

The thing about Provan's piece is that, in a different context, he might be able to argue that his comments were simply about the passion of football in Glasgow. 

 

But to write that peice in response Morelos stating he's been racially abused is flat-out racism and would, in any other context, see him sacked and blacklisted. 

Just my observation on the vastly different narrative on two very high profile personalities on opposite sides of the fence. Provan is just another one who’s trying to be controversial and ultimately playing to the masses...

He is correct, however, cant help but feel he wouldn't comment had it not been Rangers...

Absolutely shocking decision not to rescind that card. Further demonstrates the shambles  that we operate under
