Aberdeen v Celtic

Dave Cormack Hits Out At Sky Sports On Aberdeen v Celtic Coverage

Aberdeen Chief Executive, Dave Cormack has blasted Sky Sports on their promo coverage for the Aberdeen v Celtic match on Sunday.

Sky Sports released a promo clip on social media ahead of the fixture at the weekend.

The tweet captioned ‘A game which always delivers’ was accompanied by a video of 22 goals scored by Celtic at Pittodrie in recent years.

Aberdeen have scored four goals at home against the Glasgow side over the past two seasons, but none were included in their coverage.

And to top it all off, the SPFL broadcaster mis-spelt Aberdeen as ‘Abderdeen’.

Dave Cormack responded with a message on Twitter,  “Really disappointed at Sky. To spend all week creating a one-sided promo that tries to humiliate any club goes against Sky’s commitment to help promote & grow the SPFL. Thanks for the motivation & for showing our 3 goals today! BTW team name is spelt ABERDEEN! Apology on its way?”

Fans across Scottish football were equally angered by the broadcasters approach to Scottish football.
