ALLY MCCOIST and Chris Sutton are often good value when paired on the TV together. 

Always friendly in their rivalry in relation to Rangers and Celtic, the BT Sport duo love nothing more than to wind each other up at every given opportunity.

Ahead of tonight's episode of Scottish Football Extra, McCoist couldn't resist a cheeky pop at Sutton's recent access denial at Ibrox.

Last week, both Sutts and ex-Hoops boss Neil Lennon were not allowed entry into Rangers' stadium to cover their Europa League group opener against Lyon, with CEO Stewart Robertson calling them "security risks".

A statement from the Premiership champions then followed, refuting the claim and insisting that the club had "complied with all UEFA contractual obligations to facilitate BT as host broadcaster".

BT Sport later released a statement clarifying their position, with Lennon also believed to be taking legal advice over a loss of earnings.

Now, in a preview clip shared by BT's Darrel Currie on Twitter, in his usual style, Gers hero McCoist made light of the situation.

The clip starts with McCoist explaining he's enjoying watching Scottish football so far this season. 

Then stepped in Currie: "Yeah, you're getting in to see all the games Ally in fairness."

With everyone smiling, McCoist added: "That's true. You make a valid point Darrell. 

"I don't take my access to all the Scottish football grounds easily - I appreciate it. 

"I'd like to take this opportunity to thanks all of the Scottish clubs for allowing me access to their grounds and I will continue to behave myself in the manner that's expected in these football arenas."
