Scottish newspapers have printed the name of a prominent footballer allegedly involved in an extra marital affair after avoiding the super injunction taken out to protect the person's identity.

The footballer's legal team failed to register the injunction north of the border and the Scottish press have gone to town.

The Sunday Herald were first to reveal the footballer's identity (albeit with a black bar across the premiership player's eyes) and others were quick to follow suit.

All 50 copies of the Benbecula Times flew off the shelves within 10 minutes but reports suggest that this occurred as a result of a misunderstanding.

Local councillor Fergus McFergus explains :

"When we aw saw the headline, we thought it was all about a new tractor and bogey.

"Nobody up here's bothered about a molly coddled professional footballer not being able to keep his zip closed.

"All we're concerned about is getting the fields ploughed".

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