Michael Stewart and Tom English performed u-turns after seeing a different angle of Celtic’s penalty at Motherwell.

The BBC duo led the outrage on Wednesday night when Callum McGregor was accused of conning referee Willie Collum into awarding the hoops an 88th minute penalty.

When Scott Sinclair netted the penalty it seemed to unleash 66 matches of anger with no one at the BBC prepared to consider the fact that their view of the incident was distant and limited.

From the moment that the final whistle went at Fir Park there was only one topic up for discussion on Radio Scotland as each pundit expressed their horror at the decision.

Richard Gordon can usually be relied upon to provide some balance to any debate with an alternative viewpoint but he seemed to transform into critic in chief.

Following things up on Thursday night BBC Scotland’s Sportsound invited EBT duet Alex Rae and Barry Ferguson to debate the topical issues of the day.
