Experienced pundit Hugh Keevins has apologised to Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos after the club allegedly railed against an attack on the striker last week.
Keevins – who was speaking on popular football phone-in Clyde Superscoreboard – described Morelos as a “nasty piece of work” when discussing the forward’s challenge on Celtic full-back Jeremie Frimpong in last weekend’s Old Firm victory [Clyde SSB 08/01/21].
However, Keevins would take to the radio show once again to offer his apologies with one club insider claiming that this came after the club had challenged the comments.
Whilst describing Morelos’ opening goal in the 2-1 defeat of Aberdeen as a “classy piece of work” Keevins would offer a “retraction”.
“On Friday I said nasty piece of work but upon reflection I think I’ve jumped the gun on that one,” said Keevins [Clyde SSB 12/01/21].
“I offer Alfredo an apology and a retraction because it was a classy piece of work at Pittodrie and I wish him to remember that I have several other offences to be taken into consideration.”
According to leading fan media Heart & Hand, Keevins’ apology comes after the Gers themselves contacted Clyde One about the coverage.
Responding to a fan asking if someone from the club had a word with those at the Glasgow radio station, Heart & Hand said “they did, yes”.
They did, yes.
