Chris Sutton flattened by sliding tackle during live BT Sport coverage
Motherwell legend Stephen Craigan fulfilled a dream held by football fans across the country by flattening motor-mouth pundit Chris Sutton with a sliding tackle. The former Chelsea and Celtic striker was discussing the weekend's Scottish football with BT Sport presenter Darrell Currie when Craignan ran in from out of shot and cleaned him out. Sutton spent Saturday crowing over Celtic's 2-0 win the season's first Old Firm derby at Ibrox, and was on duty again on Sunday for live coverage of Motherwell's home game against Aberdeen. Clearly, with the cameras rolling the incident was rather contrived but Sutton appeared to have felt the full force of the challenge as his notes went flying and he ended up prostrate on the turf. Sutton's sardonic tone and Grumpy Old Man style of punditry has divided audiences, and it is not the first time he and Craigan have collided on camera. ������@chris_sutton73 is wiped out by Stephen Craigan!

Cathro, sacked within months of getting the job, was often ridiculed for his background as an analyst. Craigan and Sutton argued vociferously about his suitability for the role, with Sutton accusing the former Motherwell man of 'jealousy'. Sutton said: "Why is it brave? He's had four years of experience at Valencia and Newcastle." Craigan then intervened and Sutton told him, "He's better qualified than you Crags." Craigan -clearly angered by this jibe - hit back and said "He's hasn't got his pro licence and I have, so there."
