The broadcaster have been criticised in the past for their attitude towards Scottish football with a proclivity to mix up the two Dundee clubs, while having problems matching the correct crest to the correct club.

However it extended to Rangers on Sunday morning when the Sky Sports Football account tweeted a link to a preview of the match to its 180,000 followers. A picture of Celtic captain Scott Brown was side by side with a picture of Clint Hill.

The person operating the account had not done their homework, Hill left the club last summer and currently plays for Carlisle United in the EFL League Two.

The tweet has since been deleted but not before Sky Sports Scotland retweeted it to their 96,700 followers.

Sky Sports Football tweeted out the preview with Clint Hill before deleting the image.
