Savage 'practising' in his back garden

Robbie Savage, the Derby County veteran, has spoken out to defend himself after it was alleged that the Welshman is a terrorist.

Savage has been under police surveillance since officers from the Derbyshire Police Force received a tip-off from a postman that the Rams' midfielder was in contact with a group in Lebanon.

A phone-tap was installed, and it was discovered that Savage was to travel to Beirut to meet Bilal Farraj, the manager of Al Ansar, the Lebanese football champions, under the pretext that he was going there to 'coach'.

Police immediately saw through this ridiculous 'ruse', and, after neighbours reported spotting him firing a loaded weapon in his back garden, a dozen officers swooped on the player's home in an early morning raid, and arrested him this morning.

It's not the first time terrorism charges have been levelled at Savage. He started his playing days at Crewe, moving on to Leicester, Birmingham, Blackburn and latterly Derby, after being rejected by Manchester United without making a single appearance for them. At all of those clubs, he was known to terrorise opponents, and is thought to have been on the Anti-Terrorism Section's list since his St Andrews days.

More updates to follow, but not about this boring subject.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
