Glasgow Rangers fans were far from happy with the commentary of Stephen Craigan during their 3-2 win over Standard Liege in the Europa League on Thursday.
The three points secured the Gers’ place in the round of 32. Goals from Connor Goldson, James Tavernier and Scott Arfield got the job done after Liege twice went ahead. The Ibrox outfit can secure top spot next week with a win over bottom-placed Lech Poznan in Group D.
The match was shown on BT Sport in the UK, and that meant Craigan was in charge of the match commentary. He made a couple of mistakes – mainly being surprised that Jermain Defoe was not included despite him not actually being in the Europa League squad – and that was more than enough for the Gers fans to hammer him, with one supporter even labelling him an ‘idiot’.

Going out of Europe is actually quite tempting when you realise you don’t have to listen to Craigan commentate your games

@alexrae1969 Craigan was desperate for rangers to be out of sorts the night. I know you want to keep your job with bt but you should pipe up when he talks trash.

Craigan has to be up there with the worst when it comes to punditry. I had the TV on mute and RTV audio feed on, much better.

I genuinely cannot wait to get vaccinated and back inside Ibrox. Craigan particularly deplorable in commentary tonight. The fact he didn’t know Defoe wasn’t in our European squad was utterly laughable.

Anyone else notice Craigan tonight “Jermain Defoe isn’t even on the bench, that’s surprised me”
Just sums up how embarrassingly bad BT’s pundits are, can’t even do basic research…. it’s been widely reported that Defoe isn’t in our Europa League squad
