Outspoken pundit and former player Michael Stewart isn’t exactly the most popular figure amongst the Rangers support.

The ex-Hearts and Hibs midfielder regularly berates the Ibrox club, with many questioning the motives behind Stewart’s almost daily tirades about the Glasgow side.

Currently serving a BBC Scotland suspension for ranting about Ibrox media conspiracies live on-air, the outspoken pundit has stooped to a new low to land a dig on Rangers.

Stewart has taken aim at an Ibrox youth player for his involvement with Inverness Caledonian Thistle defender James Keatings and the resultant fall-out over the second yellow card that never was.

Seemingly unable to even hold back his desperate distaste of Rangers when speaking about one of the club’s youth players, Stewart unloaded on 17-year-old Ciaran Dickson.

“Fair play to the Gers Colts player, who tries to laugh consolingly with him as he goes off,” said Stewart [Scottish Sun].

“But Dickson, the guy involved in the incident, really needs to have a look at himself.

“He actually applauds Aitken’s decision to show Keatings the red. Get a grip, mate.

“That annoyed me as soon as I saw it, but I never actually gave the rest of it a second thought.”

I think Stewart was probably already annoyed by Dickson due to the jersey he was wearing in the Challenge Cup Semi-Final.

The Rangers Colts admirably reached this stage of the competition but were beaten 2-1 by Caley Thistle’s men’s side.
