BT SPORT may be bowing out of the Scottish game in 18-months time but if they’re going out then they’re doing so with a bang.
Rather than pull back on the coverage we have currently been enjoying from the BT production team, we’re going to get even more bang for our buck and perhaps, maybe, just maybe, make Sky Sports sit up and take notice.
The Bet Fred League Cup Final is the first trophy of the season up for grabs and not only is there lengthy pre-match coverage on the day – it has been announced BT Sports Xtra will be on from 11am to discuss the final and the Hearts vs Rangers game which is on before the big game!
We have a HUGE day of Scottish football coming up on Sunday 👊
💜 Hearts vs Rangers 🔵
🍀 Celtic vs Aberdeen 🔴
🏆 Betfred Cup Final

There is set to be five solid hours of football, pre and post match analysis of all the big talking points.
This isn’t a production that is resting on its laurels or phoning it in because they will not be carrying the league for much longer. BT look likely to continue their top coverage until the very end.
