Rangers momentarily returned to the top of the Scottish Premiership with a 2-0 win over Motherwell, though some supporters were left seething from the coverage of Sky Sports’ Andy Walker during the game.
The former Motherwell forward was on co-commentary duties at Fir Park, with the pundit offering his views during a dramatic match which included a strong tackle on Alfredo Morelos that only saw Liam Donnelly receive a booking, while the visitors then had Morelos sent off moments after scoring – something a number of fans felt Walker had been calling out for before the Colombian received his second yellow.
It had become a bit too much for these fans, who took to Twitter to voice their anger over the perceived bias from Walker and displayed their own views on social media.
Supporters felt that Walker was especially harsh on the Colombian striker even before his red card, which dominated the reactions during the game – some of which you can see below:
Katic’s shirt being pulled and he was dragged down in the box. Motherwell get a free kick and Andy Walker says he brought down his own player?! When will you stop making us listen to these terrible commentators @btsportfootball

If Morelos had made that tackle Andy Walker would be screaming for a red.

Andy Walker is something else.
Katic goes through the Motherwell forward and managed to get a head on the ball. “Had no right to go for the ball, definate foul, lucky not to be carded”
Motherwell defender does the same to Morelos in the box “it kinda looks clumsy”

Can @ScotlandSky maybe let us know why Andy walker is STILL commentating on rangers games….
Morelos could have very easily had his leg broken in a absolutely abysmal tackle
But walker thought it warrants a yellow card rather than a red….

Hugely impressed by Andy Walker’s complete refusal to even contemplate a single indiscretion by Motherwell
