Andrew Dickson has decided to delete and issue a half hearted apology after a sick joke about St Mirren.

Last night it was reported that seven St Mirren employees had tested positive for the virus which was a source of amusement for the Sky Sports reporter.

Dicko’s sense of humour linked that news with Birmingham City’s decision to retire their number 22 jersey after Jude Bellingham was sold to Borussia Dortmund for £25m.

Across Twitter Dickson doesn’t make any attempt to disguise his affection for the club and Ibrox- matched by his contempt for Celtic. Seeing a Celtic shirt at Wimbledon was an upsetting experience for the Sky Sports reporter.

Dickson was an employee of Rangers when they went into liquidation, opting to TUPE his contract over to the club founded by Charles Green in 2012 where he gave a famous account of the bibs v non-bibs training session. Later on he compared liquidation to a rebranding of Kit-Kat.

From next week Sky Sports will have exclusive coverage of SPFL fixtures.
