Burnley Mascot Bertie Bee ‘Jailed’ For Offering Linesman Glasses Against QPR

By Chris Wright


Scandal mired Burnley’s 2-0 victory over QPR on Saturday when the Clarets’ club mascot, Bertie Bee, had to be escorted from the pitch by security staff during the second half after offering the linesman a pair of glasses.

(QPR midfielder Joey Barton was also pelted on the head with a half-full bottle of Coke during the game, but we don’t need to dwell on that.)

Bertie’s gesture was taken as a hostile suggestion that the assistant many need eyesight assistance in order for him to better officiate games and the anthropomorphic bumblebee was duly and quite rightly sent off by referee Simon Hooper before being escorted down the tunnel and slung in a holding pen deep within the bowels of Turf Moor – a punishment truly befitting the crime…


Apparently he’s got to stay in there until he learns to “beehive” properly. Huh, geddit? “Beehive”?

Aaaanyway, it’s not like Bertie doesn’t have previous either, this of course being the very same mascot that tip-tackled a naked pitch invader during a game against Preston North End back in 2002…

We need to get this kind of scum off our touchlines. Won’t somebody please think of the children??!?
