Veteran Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has slammed the recently formed Society Of Ginger lawyers whose militant and outspoken stance against "gingerism" both on the terraces and the field of play has outraged both the player's union and the FA hierachy.
"It's completely unnecessary and divisive" said Scholes 87 at his Salford home last night."To be perfectly honest with you I actually enjoy the abuse I get from fans and team mates because of my hair colour. Some of my finest performances both for United and England have come after I've been called a "ginger tosser" by wags in the crowd or my marker on the pitch. I mean to say it's not as if I'm a darkie or a chutney ferret is it?"
