BBC Scotland has confirmed that shamed pundit Michael Stewart is “available for selection” again after he was pulled by the broadcaster over ridiculous comments made about Rangers PR chief Jim Traynor and Ibrox star Alfredo Morelos.

Stewart has been off the BBC’s output for a number of weeks following the comments made at the start of the month but they have confirmed his return this afternoon.


The failed Ibrox trialist let loose in a bizarre on-air rant following claims that Alfredo Morelos was racially abused by Celtic fans, casting doubt over the legitimacy of the claims, leading to the BBC to issue an apology.

He then brazenly suggested that the entire thing had been orchestrated by Rangers PR chief Jim Traynor to deflect from earlier stories about someone allegedly tampering with the brakes on Morelos’ car.

Despite Stewart’s tinfoil hat conspiracies, a young Celtic fan has been charged with racially abusing Morelos and  Kilmarnock are now investigating another incident at Rugby Park.

After being pulled off the air by the BBC, Stewart pathetically doubled down on his Rangers attacks, singling out teenager Ciaran Dickson for criticism in the row over Inverness CT’s James Keatings’ Challenge Cup suspension.


While the BBC seem happy that Stewart will abide by the guidelines set out for him, it likely won’t be long until he causes another row in his desperation to take petty shots at the Gers.
