BT SPORT stop their coverage of Scottish football at the end of this season and on the whole it’s been good. However, on Wednesday night, the commentary was Sky Sports-esk with no Chris Sutton around.
The broadcaster chose to go with a team of Rory Hamilton (Lead Commentator), flanked by Michael Stewart and Stephen Craigan.
Stewart is an ex-Hearts player and Craigan has a well known case off wee team syndrome. Craigan actively spurs Celtic’s opposition on and talks them up. At one point he spoke of Celtic’s offside goal at 2-0 galvanising Hearts. We had Stewart who pulled up Christopher Jullien for making more of a tackle but then later in the game he kept quiet when a Hearts player did the same. It was a horrible night for BT Sport.
Celtic fans aren’t shy at telling you what they think and with no balance to the commentary – many stuck it on mute.

I pay £30 a month for @btsport and I feel like I’m watching Hearts TV with Craigan and Stewart.
Couple of bitter wee men

Can almost see the tears from Craigan and Stewart as Celtic begin to dismantle Hearts. Pair of biased idiots…

Time to put the tv on mute. Stewart and Craigan doing my head in #morons
