As a follow up to our article last week about the lack of pre-match coverage Sky Sports gave the semi-final between Celtic and The Rangers last week – a mere 15 minutes, we look at what BT Sport are doing this weekend before Celtic’s potential title clincher.
The game at Easter Road which is scheduled to kick off at 12:30pm will get double the allotted time Sky Sports gave the Glasgow Derby last weekend with 30 minutes build up.
Not only that, BT Sports will air an interview with former Celtic player and Hibs boss Alan Stubbs 11:30 am till midday. An interview that will be pertinent to both sets of supporters tuning in to see their team. Between online coverage via their Facebook page and multiple pre-match shows on BT Sport 1, they are offering TWO HOURS of match build up.
Celtic have a massive chance to secure their seventh consecutive title if they can get past the man who won them one, two and three.
It promises to be an exciting early afternoon kick off and BT Sports are giving it the platform it deserves.
Sky Sports Blown Out The Water – Title Clincher Coverage to Beat Derby Day Disaster
Many fans would like to see BT Sports cover Scottish football outright in the next TV deal if it were possible.
Sky Sports seem to be only interested in the bigger fixtures and even then they do not showcase them enough and Scottish football plays second or even third fiddle to the EPL and Championship.
