Celtic have escalated their dispute with Sky Sports by “withdrawing co-operation” with the media giants as the fall-out from the ill-fated Alfredo Morelos interview continues.

In a report by The Daily Record, it is claimed that the Parkhead club will refuse Sky Sports reporters access for press conferences and won’t release the players and staff for interviews, with the champions facing Aberdeen – live on Sky on Sunday – things could get awkward pretty quickly.

Sky have apologised to Celtic for the fiasco and apologised to both the club and their supporters for, specifically, claiming via subtitles, that Morelos said he was racially abused during the last Glasgow derby in December when he never mentioned the fixture.

Should Celtic take legal action over Sky Sports' production of Morelos' interview?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Hoops’ hierarchy continues to press for clarity and for more answers, particularly surrounding who was responsible for the translation and with news of the “ban” reaching social media, Celtic fans took to Twitter to hail the decisive action taken by the board.

This saga is set to run and run with no obvious end in sight, both sides of the Glasgow divide are currently in conflict with elements of the Scottish media which – when the English Premier League is already won – is a missed opportunity to put Scottish football on the map for all the right reasons.
