BT Sport’s final Scottish football offering airs this Saturday at 9:45pm and will be an hour-long special dedicated to Celtic’s nine-in-a-row triumph featuring former stars such as Moussa Dembele and Mikael Lustig.

Manager Neil Lennon and captain Scott Brown will also be involved while pundits Chris Sutton and Johan Mjallby will be on hand to offer their thoughts as former Celtic stars to presenter Darrell Currie.

Executive Producer for Sunset & Vine Grant Philips shared the news on Twitter this evening, with Sutton quickly adding to the hype with his own tweet which declared the programme is a ‘must watch’.

Sky Sports will become exclusive broadcast partners for the SPFL starting in August and with the Scottish Premiership wrapped up, there will now be no more BT Sport programmes beyond this dedicated to Scottish football.

The broadcaster will still be on hand to cover teams competing in European action.

BT Sport have offered up some fantastic coverage of the Scottish game for a number of years now and their excellent shows will be a big miss for many supporters.

From Sutton clashing with other pundits like Stephen Craigan and Ally McCoist to extensive day-long Scottish Cup Final broadcasts, they’ve really set the bar for what’s expected in the game here.

This final show sounds like the perfect send-off and with former favourites like Dembele and Lustig on hand to reminisce about their title wins, they can’t really go wrong.

One to look forward to while the ongoing shutdown continues!
