Michael Stewart and Chris Sutton had a late night Twitter clash over politics on the day that Nicola Sturgeon showed Scottish football a yellow card.

Stewart and Sutton were the most watched pundits in Scottish football when they teamed up on BT Sport with refreshing views on the sort of topics that BBC Scotland and others steered well clear of.

Scottish football was centre stage at yesterday’s Scottish Government media conference with Chris McLaughlin of BBC Scotland the first of three sports reports to question the First Minister. Raman Bhardwar of STV was second up, taking time of from uncovering stories such as Vakoun Bayo’s move to St Mirren and Brentford beating Celtic to the signing of Ivan Toney.

Stewart is a vocal supporter of the SNP and has harboured ambitions to stand as an MP for Westminster, when it comes to politics and the current First Minister his views become blinkered in defence.

Sutton appears to have no party political views but has spoken out on a number of social issues, especially Dementia related as he sees first hand its impact on a generation of footballers including his Dad, Mike. Being deputy to flag wearing Douglas Ross at the Scottish Conservative party is unlikely to appeal.

The next big issue for Scottish football will be the first matches back for Celtic and Aberdeen, Neil Lennon’s side are due to face KR Reykjavik on August 18 in a Champions League qualifier.
