Chris Sutton chopped down by surprise tackle from fellow pundit live on BT Sport

The ex-Celtic striker was flattened by former Northern Ireland and Motherwell defender Stephen Craigan.

FOOTBALL PUNDIT CHRIS Sutton was caught off-guard and sent flying during a live broadcast for BT Sport earlier today.

The former Celtic and Blackburn Rovers striker — known for his strong views on Scottish football and, in particular, the Hoops — chatted to presenter Darrell Currie ahead of Motherwell’s meeting with Aberdeen when fellow guest Stephen Craigan appeared from nowhere with a perfectly-timed challenge.

Sutton has had his fair share of disagreements with ex-Motherwell and Northern Ireland defender Craigan on air, and while the tackle was undoubtedly pre-planned, it still makes for satisfying viewing.
