“Bead-rattlers” force an apology
The article was about the negative attitude of some fans towards current manager Gordon Strachan. The offending passage:
some fans would probably rather have a bead-rattling Hoopy the Huddle Hound in the dug-out.
(Hoopy the Huddle Hound is Celtic’s mascot)
In response to complaints the Sunday Herald sports editor Stephen Penman wrote:
The use of the term ‘bead-rattling’ is clearly unacceptable in a quality newspaper. Indeed, it is clearly unacceptable in any context and in any walk of life.
Sectarianism is indeed still a problem in some parts of the UK, and we here at MWW are totally against discrimination on such grounds. A zombie worshipper is a zombie worshipper, be they papist or prod.
