FORMER Celtic star turned football pundit Chris Sutton has taken a pop at rivals Sky Sports about their coverage of Scottish football.
Last night the Englishman tweeted out ‘Huge games deserve huge build ups’ – referring to Aberdeen vs The Rangers last night who were in a battle for second spot in the SPFL.
Huge games deserve huge build ups…

He then took it one further this morning and while advertising BT’s coverage of the Edinburgh Derby tonight he described it as ‘Full and comprehensive’.
.@btsportfootball Full and comprehensive build up Hearts v Hibs tonight 1845⚽️ Watch all the build up live… McCoist, Craigan, Stubbs, Stewart, led by the lovely Darrell Currie⚽️

It’s no secret that Sky Sports tend to give very little time to the Scottish game before and after matches.
BT Sports have excelled at selling the Scottish game whenever they can but may just be creeping into some complacency and bad habits.
Signing up Rob Maclean, a dinosaur of the Scottish game along with former Sky Sports frontman David Tanner has earned the Sports brodcaster some rightful criticism.
