BT Sport pundit forced to admit Celtic penalty mistake
BT Sports pundit Michael Stewart has been forced into a u-turn on social media, after he admitted that he called a penalty award wrong.
The former Hibs and Hearts man originally described the decision to award Celtic a penalty against Motherwell on Wednesday night as “horrific”.
However, after seeing the incident again from a different angle he admitted that he was mistaken in his original tweet.
“Got to be honest and say that having seen a different angle just now it would appear it wasn’t as horrendous a decision as I first thought” he said on his official twitter account.
