Sky Sports scores incredible own goal with jaw dropping selection

If ever there was a more ridiculous Team of the Week selection in Scottish football history I would be keen to see the challengers. Sky Sports have put up their ‘selection’ for this weekend’s Scottish Premiership fixtures and it certainly makes for a jaw-dropping read as soon as your eyes catch contact with the names.

Four players of a certain club that play in Govan and wear blue have been selected, with one – yes one – Celtic player in that list. Greg Taylor is the only one who made the team, which was probably only shoved in because they would look incredibly dim if they awarded him Man of the Match on Sunday afternoon then snubbed him.

The other players that make up the team are as follows; Obileye, Nouble (LIV); Rowles, Shankland, Devlin (HEA). However, the final piece to this monstrosity is their inclusion of Kilmarnock goalkeeper Walker who conceded five goals! After being slated by Sky Sports commentator Andy Walker and their own resident pundit Kris Boyd, they have the temerity to include him in the TOTW. It defies any logic known to man. It really does. Gobsmacked doesn’t cut it this time.

Sky Sports are doing nothing to assuage any fears that their product is bias or pro-Ibrox.

There has always been underlying suspicions about this which only got more extreme when Steven Gerrard arrived in Scotland. There followed some highly dubious instances of anti-Celtic behaviour; the interview with Alfredo Morelos in which they grossly misinterpreted what he said to accuse the Celtic support of racism being just one of the more serious attempts to discredit the club.

I'm a Garngad Bhoy through and through. My first ever Celtic game was a friendly against Italian side Parma at Celtic Park, in 2002. Currently a student of English Literature and Education at the University of Strathclyde for my sins. Favourite game would be a toss up between beating Manchester United with that Naka freekick, or the game against the Oldco when Hesselink scored in the dying seconds. I'm still convinced Cal Mac is wasted playing that far back.

    I’m going to unfollow this page, not only is there a staggering pro Rangers agenda but some of the stories are YEARS old, not really looking for any of that content.
