For those who aren’t my lucky enough to have a ticket for Pittodrie this afternoon we have to make do with Sky Sports. Usually a tedious and uninspiring production with the usual suspects.
However, we won’t be subject to Kris Boyd today! Which is a win in itself. The player former Ibrox player is not remotely an impartial pundit and is there just to talk up his old side while trying to pour cold water on Celtic.
Kris Commons is a former Celt who has irked a lot of supporters since leaving the club. Happy to push the narrative the Sky Sports producers give him in a game to game basis.
The pair usually do most Live weekend Sky a Sports Scotland games.
Today we have John Hartson and James McFadden in the studio.
We’ll take that over the two Kris’s any day.

We’d love to see the BT panel come in to Sky Sports next term with the channels ceasing coverage of the Scottish Premiership.
Right now, for the most part, Sky Sports is Amateur hour.
