The former Motherwell manager was introduced as a surprise co-commentator by Hayley McQueen just before the teams walked out at Celtic Park for today’s early game.
Ian Crocker was in his usual place as the play-by-play commentator, but McGhee, you’d expect, is there to add some colour to the game.
Well, it’s not quite turned out that way, with many bored by McGhee’s appearance.
Then again, should we have expected anything other than this response from supporters on McGhee’s commentary debut with Sky Sports? Probably not:

Mark McGhee on co-commentary duty as Celtic take on Morton. So far no goals, 3 bizarre outbursts and 2 attempted murders

"I'd imagine he'd be lying awake all week dreaming of that opportunity"
Mark McGhee everyone.

I genuinely thought there was no one that could be worse to listen to than Glenn Hoddle on co-comms. Step forward Mark McGhee

Mark McGhee could put a caffeine fuelled, ecstay filled, insomniac to sleep.

I would rather listen to Debbie McGhee co-commentating than Mark McGhee. This game is like watching the curling. Ice cold and boring. 😒

Mark McGhee must be a shoe-in to commentate on the next royal funeral. #Celtic

Mark McGhee is so dull he makes Andy Murray sound like a motivational speaker

Mark McGhee commentary sounds if he was up all night getting embalmed.

Mark McGhee is the WORST co-commentator in the world. Soon as he speaks I’m nodding off! You’d think he was commentating on snooker.

Who the fuck thought Mark McGhee would be a good idea!!!

We’ve just scratched the surface with that reaction – it’s fair to say there are a lot more who aren’t enjoying McGhee on their TV.
The game hasn’t helped much either, with Celtic and Morton level at 0-0 at half-time.
Hopefully there are more goals and a bit more excitement from McGhee in the second half.
