Rio Ferdinand’s punditry skills – or should it be lack of them – have been slammed by a former former Scotland international.
Leanne Crichton has labelled them ’embarrassing’ after what proved to be some entirely ludicrous comments from the former Hammer ahead of the England v Scotland bore draw.
His inflated view of the team’s abilities was laughable following the dreary 0-0 draw which showed the Three Lions at their worst.
Predicting a win it could easily be claimed that he sowed a distinct lack of respect towards the scot who – on the night were the far better side against ‘sideways and backwards’ England.
And it all left Leanne seriously annoyed at his dismissive attitude towards the Scots and not afraid to say so.
Ferdinand had said: “I can’t see anything else, I’m telling you. I’ve never been this confident about a game in a major championship.”
England then mustered just one shot on target all game with the nation’s expectations crashing back down to earth.
And Crichton laid into Ferdinand, saying on BBC Scotland :saying “Some of the things that Rio Ferdinand has said are genuinely embarrassing. It’s so disrespectful.
“Scott McTominay plays for Manchester United. Billy Gilmour could probably walk into any other team bar Chelsea.
“They need to have a bit of realism about where their money and resources actually takes them.”
