Neil McCann opted to dig a deeper hole when he switched BBC Radio Scotland for the Sportscene studio.
The former Ibrox ace had been slaughtered across Social Media for describing Odsonne Edouard’s penalty against Hearts as disrespectful as he performed a Panenka on Craig Gordon.
It seems that irony is lost on someone who spend part of his career being paid through a disguised remuneration scheme.
Edouard is at liberty to take a penalty kick any way that he wishes, just as Gordon is perfectly entitled to stand still on his goal line and pick up the ball from a Panenka.

Across football the Panenka penalty is regularly carried out drawing praise for the confidence and nerve of the taker. But it seems not in Scotland, or when it involves a Celtic player.
Prior to his double dunt with BBC Scotland McCann turned in a shift on ‘Rangers TV’ alongside Shelley Kerr, the SFA employee that manages the woman’s National Team that recently failed to reach the European Championships.
