Sky Sports got much more than they bargained for from their venture into live coverage of the SWPL.
The new look set up is determined to make its mark with the Sky Sports deal the perfect platform to promote the women’s game in Scotland and further afield.
Ian Crocker was in the commentary box for the match at Broadwood as the post split fixtures got underway.

In the ninth minute of stoppage time Caitlin Hayes levelled for Celtic but the real drama was still to come.
Rather than accept with some grace the fact that the two teams had delivered an entertaining match Ibrox coach Craig McPherson let his emotions get the better of him with an attempted head-butt on Celtic boss Fran Alonso.
Having invested heavily in the women’s game the spotlight is now on the SFA to react to an incident witnessed across the UK.
Early action from Ibrox would be helpful but the ball is now in the court of Ian Maxwell over how they react to one coach attacking another at the end of a showpiece match.

This club should be hammered for this thuggish attack by one of their back room staff , he should be barred for life from coaching and charged for his actions.
This club should be hammered and also their coach , he should also be charged for assault.
Typical hun behaviour
Trying to attack someone from behind . Judas rat f*ck
This Ibrox club is steeped in corruption and aggression. What a fouled and evil instItution it is! It is time the authorities took action, instead of turning a blind eye every time.
This is typical of this club and Fran was approached from behind by this absolute idiot. This should be taken to court as it is assault. Of course, the club will do nothing itself. How many times have we to put up with this?
As if their fans aren’t bad enough. Absolutely the most scummy club on the face of the planet. No matter what level of the game, they are a disgrace to this country.
A sleekit,cowardly kant.
Just like McCoist.
The bitterness and hate is instilled from birth.
This hideous club should be disbanded at ALL levels !!
Lothesome new club to all sensible and sundry sensible…
Lovesome club to Ch. Supt. Mark Sutherland, Hollywood Governmental Huns, Scottish MSM whore club, and Bastardised child of The SFA & SPFL !
A Celtic player will be hurt by them before the season is out – you heard it here first !
