AC Milan keeper Dida today stated that the 'assault' that could still cost Celtic valuable Champions League points was little more than a 'colpo delicato della mia guancicaor' or as we would say ' a gentle stroke of my cheek'.
Speaking from the Milan training ground the cheating itie admitted that rather than shouting, " Feck off you greasy wop" [vaffunculo grassi wop] as he had initially told the referee, Robert McHendry , life long Bhoys fan and trainee priest actually said, "Chase me you Italian Stallion" [inseguirlo voi stallion italiano].
Dida continued, "Where I live such things are not said between men. Homosexuality very rare in Italian society. So when I hear this man suggest that I persue him for sexy fun times, I dropped to my knees in shock. Possible you might hear such a thing at Barbra Streisand concert in Rome, but on a football pitch,.. "Meritate tutti che otteniate, Voi pervertiti gay dello scottish.",
[You deserve all you get, You gay Scottish perverts.] and a spit on the floor is a spit on the floor in any language.
Robert McHendry was unavailable for comment. However this is not the first time he has propositioned stars during a sporting event. During the Six nations last month he ran onto the pitch at Murrayfield, buried himself inside the Scottish scrum and emerged with Chris Cusiter undercrackers between his teeth. And what he suggested to Graham Dott at The Crucible back in April as he bent over to pot the pink could not be published in a family newspaper.
