They must be buoyed after their Brexit victory and have decided to alienate even more people

http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/39601728

Same arsehole who wrote the original anti Liverpool rubbish - why do people keep on buying the paper?

P.S. top level footballers are not 'thick'. Many may not be too articulate and have not gone to University but to be a professional footballer means you have a gift that 99% of the population don't have.

More's the point, why after simply rebranding themselves are the parent company being allowed to takeover the rest of Sky.

Perhaps a boycott of Sky, rather than the Sun, would hurt more?

Murdoch still doesn't own Sky, though I'm sure it will be given the nod by the current government.

Big surprise was that the EU passed it. The first punishment?

Anyway, not football related, maybe it should be moved.

I have never heard of this footballer, and never, until now, seen a picture of him, but if I had not been told that his grandfather was Nigerian, would certainly not have classed any comment as racist.

Both my grandfathers were Welsh, and I have had various insults directed at me in the past (some on this forum) but it would never have occurred to me to class them as racist.

Maybe MacKenzie shouldn't have said what he said, but, to class the comment as racist seems a bit far fetched.

Isn't it time we all became a bit less precious about racial origins?

Ian Botham used to be likened to a gorilla as I recall. No-one suggested that was racist.

The reason this was deemed racist was because one of his grandfathers was Nigerian.

The Sun claims not to have known this at the time.

However, irrespective of parentage, I wonder why The Sun needs to publish articles like this at all?

It wasn't just the racism, but other references such as males with similar incomes in Liverpool being drug dealers etc. It seems the bloke has an issue with the city generally

I agree it seems from the reports (I have not read it) to be a bottom-scraping piece of journalism (having just typed that, I think it can be taken two ways :-))

However, I only addressed the racist element as that was the crux of the BBC link in the first post.

It is racist because if you see the guy he is clearly mixed race.

Possibly, but if I didn't see him then maybe MacKenzie didn't either. That picture is certainly not conclusive.

I hold no brief for MacKenzie, or the Sun, haven't read it since it stopped being the Daily Herald. :|

So -- if MacKenzie didn't see him or know anything about him why did he write the article. My view is that he is a fucking idiot who printed the 'TRUTH' as a Scum headline years ago and just can't live with the fact that he lost credibility and more important revenue. Despite all that has gone on the rag still pays him to print lies - only the British press could get away with it.

Both Liverpool and now Everton football clubs have banned Scum journos from their premises - well done to them!
