Uefa declined to shell out “a substantial sum” for her to front the event in a stadium suite for media and dignitaries.

There was also frustration at the BBC that Scott, and other well-known pundits, were not featuring enough on the broadcaster’s TV and radio news channels during the group stage to help plug the tournament.
