Scottish football fans have piled in to offer their backing to BT Sport on the back of their new video trailer for the new season.
According to some Scottish football ended with the transfer of Adam Rooney from Aberdeen to Salford City.
Jim White of Sky Sports was flabbergasted by the move and soon had an armchair army of experts sharing their thoughts on the passing of Scottish football.
“Scottish football is going down the pan…BT Sport have pulled the plug on us!”
“I’m just joking boys, we’re back!”
The new season is here and it feels so good ???????? pic.twitter.com/OYeBbTjB3A

Haha brilliant banter guys! Can you not also give us a goals programme that covers the goals from all the leagues in Scotland like they get down in England on channel 5?

There’s nowt wrong with football in Scotland, it’s as good as many other European leagues. There’s lots of football snobbery about, I never miss a game on BT no matter what league is being shown. I’m an English Man Utd fan who loves football, St Mirren are always great to watch

Far better coverage than anything Sky offer. What I would like to see is more cash invested in the game and a proper extended highlights package. Scottish football is on the up!!
