Sky Sports appear to be increasingly distancing themselves from the subtitles used in the Alfredo Morelos interview which contained sinister inaccuracies.
The Sky Sports video which has since been taken down from all social media platforms and their website suggest Morelos accused Celtic fans of racist behaviour.
The Columbian never said anything about Celtic in that manner but the subtitles clearly suggested that’s what the Ibrox striker was getting at.
Celtic’s very clear and concise statement has asked for clarity and for Sky to investigate who was responsible for translating and why there was no checks before it was thrown out on social media. Given the gravity of the accusation, you would imagine things should have been properly checked.
A SkySports spokesperson told RecordSport: “We are aware of concerns raised about the content of the interview with Alfredo Morelos, while we are checking those we have removed the material from all our platforms.”
Someone has to be answerable for this and action must be taken. This kind of media reporting fans the flames of hatred. Alfredo Morelos actually tries to be diplomatic and speaks well in the legit transcribed article.
Is it idiocy or something more sinister?
