FOOTBALL fans have expressed their anger at STV and the Scottish Football Association as the channel plans to show the England game on Monday – instead of the Scottish one.

While England are set to play against San Marino at 7.45pm, Scotland’s national team will also battle it out against Denmark for the World Cup Qualifiers.

The Scotland game won’t be on STV but can be watched on Sky Sports with coverage kicking off at 7pm.

Taking to Twitter to criticise STV’s lack of coverage, Bill Cruickshank said: “So #YesScots as Scotland plays Denmark in what promises to be a great game of football tonight, a game which you can only watch on @SkySports @STV once again are showing an England game.

“I reckon #YesScots will #stvswitchoff between 7-10 pm @STV advertisers will be not happy.”

Cruickshank's post received hundreds of likes with many replying in the comments also expressing their frustration.

One person said the blame should be laid on the Scottish Football Association (SFA) as the rights to broadcast the games were sold to Sky.

Another agreed with Cruickshanks that they would turn off STV during the time of the game.

User Stewart replied to the post, tweeting: “Remember when STV used to show a movie when the ITV network showed English football. That should happen again.

“Fed up seeing England on council telly in Scotland and the Scotland NT getting s#@*e, but expensive Sky coverage.”

Stephen White agreed, tweeting: “I'm not sticking up for @stv but the blame for this lies with the Scottish Football Association who sold Scots football fans out to Sky.

"Still won't be watching @stv for 2 reasons: I'm not English and I'm watching Scotland."

Paul O’Neill also criticised the SFA: “I hate this but it is to do with contracts. The SFA sold the rights to the sky and the FA sold theirs to ITV. It’s a bidding thing.

“It’s a pity that ITV didn’t push the boat out more. Wait until the likes of Amazon start bidding and it will be different.”

However, in 2014 Uefa centralised the TV rights for all 55 European nations.

Therefore, it is Uefa that sells the TV rights and the SFA will likely play no part in the process.

Scotland qualified for the World Cup play-offs and are just two matches away from taking part in 2022’s Qatar tournament.

If Scotland manages three points against Denmark tonight at Hampden then the Tartan Army should be guaranteed a place in the play-off semi-final in March.

STV and the Scottish Football Association have been contacted for comment.
