Jeff Stelling says he’ll wear pink trousers on Soccer Saturday – fans can’t wait

Jeff Stelling has joked he's going to wear pink trousers when he presents Soccer Saturday this weekend – and fans can't wait.

Stelling promised to wear the trousers when standing up for his Sky Sports colleague Michelle Owen, who had been the victim of online trolls when she sported a pair on Tuesday evening.

Owen tweeted: "I don’t given an opinion I ask the questions…. I also pointed out the Derby players were incensed, I asked if it was contact with consequence and pointed out the ref's position and we heard from Paul Warne on it. And I love my pink trousers thanks!"
