A number of Celtic supporters have reacted angrily to the latest news surrounding Sky Sports’ interview with Alfredo Morleos.
The incident began when Sky Sports used incorrect subtitles that quoted Morelos as saying he received racist abuse at Celtic Park in December’s Glasgow Derby, according to the Guardian.

Celtic then issued a strong statement on their website, demanding answers from Sky as to how the “inconsistencies” between what was displayed in the subtitles and what Morelos said came about.
Sky responded to the incident by removing the interview from all of their platforms and issuing an apology to Celtic, Rangers and Morelos, the Daily Record revealed.
Celtic were not happy with that response however, and once again released a statement on their official website, revealing that they had reported Sky to Ofcom following the incident.
However according to the Scottish Daily Mail’s chief football writer Stephen McGowan, Ofcom have revealed they cannot pursue the matter further as Sky didn’t release that section of the interview on TV.
