Michael Stewart has revealed that BBC Scotland kept their pundits in the dark about Gregory Campbell’s appearance on Sportsound yesterday.

Richard Gordon was his usual professional self as he introduced the show with Pat Bonner in the studio, Michael Stewart and Brian McLaughlin in Edinburgh and Tom English taking a break from watching egg chasing to join the show.

Later in the show they would be taking a look at Kilmarnock’s 1965 Scottish League success and be joined by Paul Hegarty, Maurice Malpas, Willie Miller and Eric Black to discuss the day in 1984 when Dundee United and Aberdeen played in European semi-finals.

One special feature however wasn’t announced in advance, a decision made by the production team that suspended Stewart earlier this year for discussing the role of Ibrox media chief James Traynor.

Campbell gave non-answers to a few questions from Gordon with that section of the show cut from the podcast released later in the day.

The Westminster MP had nothing to add to the debate about Scottish football, Stewart and English dismissed his comments when Gordon tried to generate some follow up.
