Sky Sports presenter Hayley McQueen has defended herself on social media in the aftermath of the quite staggering end to the coverage of Livingston against The Rangers.
We reported this morning that fans were left bewildered after Livingston’s win when McQueen alongside Kris Boyd and Kris Commons started discussing the innuendo and conjecture around Celtic this week instead of discussing the Ibrox club’s failings on the day or even discuss the fact a linesman was attacked by a missile.
Hayley is on Twitter and has felt compelled to tweet back after a barrage of miffed Celtic fans asked why she had taken the ridiculous route after the game.
Instead of defending her position Hayley passed it off as an ‘Editorial decision’ and washed her hands of any of the blame.
Why you think I’m a Rangers fan, god knows, it’s obviously what you want to believe. A decision to discuss Celtic today was an editorial decision not mine personally. End of.

I’m actually not defending it but when you tweet me with something that is wrong I will correct it. As explained already I do not control our editorial output.

Celtic fans who had tuned in to watch the football were mystified as to why their club was being discussed and not only discussed but the indulgement of gossip and rumours instead of dealing with the match at hand.
The editorial decision must have been taken before the result was finalised.
The story of the day was Livingston’s fantastic start to the Premiership season and the ineffectual Ibrox club’s hype train making another stop on their journey to nowhere.
Maybe Hayley will question the Editorial team the next time this comes up.
