Premier Sports, have this week announced the presenting team for their Scottish Cup coverage.

This may be a new station for Scottish football, but strangely, it’s unlikely to take much getting used to.

That is, if you’ve already decided to fork out the £9.99 a month to sign up.

It’s because, the on-air team is an exact replica of that used by BT Sport for their coverage of the SPL.

Ally McCoist’s continued inclusion is a plus for Gers fans.


The club’s record goal scorer is obviously a massive Ibrox favourite and initially drew praise for his knowledgeable commentary during the World Cup.

However, alongside McCoist comes Chris Sutton and Stephen Craigan.

Ex-Celtic striker, Sutton, is a controversial figure, while former Motherwell and Partick Thistle defender Craigan, also polarises opinion.

Host, Darrell Currie, commentator, Rory Hamilton, and pitch side reporter, Emma Dodds, complete the line-up.

What do you think of the appointments?

Should fresh faces have been drafted in, or is the BT Sport model one worth replicating?
