BT Sport sign off their coverage of Scottish football today with a special show at 5.30pm.
Over the last five years Scottish football has been shown in a new light with serious- and some not so serious- coverage of the domestic game.
The cast list revolves around Chris Sutton with few remembering his criticism of Ronny Deila before switching his focus on the serial failures at Ibrox under various management teams.

Stephen Craigan has been the regular side-kick, perched on the fence afraid to express an opinion and wary of being taken apart by the former Celtic and Chelsea striker.
As a very independent voice Michael Stewart has added great value in a sea of pundits incapable of anything other than trotting out the party line from Ibrox.
Ally McCoist has occasionally proved worthwhile but when push comes to shove his comments are as predictable as Alex Rae or Kevin Thompson.
Next season Sky Sports has exclusive coverage of the SPFL with BT retaining the rights to the Champions League and Europa League.
Sky’s interest in Scottish football can be summarised in two words- Kris Boyd. With a new dawn starting in August they could do worse than go on a recruitment raid on their broadcasting competitor.
