‘I’m No Racist Or Homophobe, I’m A Human Being And I Made A Mistake’ – Malky Mackay Apologises Over Gay Snake-Gate

By Chris Wright

Britain Soccer Premier League

Malky Mackay has publicly apologised for the offensive text messages that have come to light as part of the ongoing FA investigations into Cardiff City’s allegations of misconduct against their former manager.

In what is now being referred to across the board as “Gay Snake-gate“, Mackay is alleged by Cardiff City to have sent and received a number of offensive texts from ex-Bluebirds sporting director Iain Moody.

Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports News this afternoon, Mackay apologised for his conduct, saying:

“The texts are things I absolutely have to deal with and explain. Out of 10,000 texts in and out of someone’s phone I sent three.

“That being the case, they are complete unacceptable and for any offence I apologise for that. There’s no excuse for that.

“I did it in a period when I was under intense pressure. Relationships were not going too well at the club at the time. But that should not have happened.”

When Pies are under pressure, we tend to eat biscuits and shout at clouds. Each to their own, we suppose.

Anyway, Mackay continued his grovelling thus:

“I’m a human being and I made a mistake.

“I would humbly ask people to ask themselves if their own mobile was taken and every message scrutinised, would there be embarrassing texts.

“I’ve been in a multi-cultural football environment for 20 years and I’m no racist. I’m no sexist, I’m no homophobe, I’m not antisemitic.

“The people who know me, know that.”

Quite so. He’s a “real football man“, don’t you know?

    I love how when people get caught, these are the ONLY times they ever did it.

    “I only broke into Watergate that one time … what about all the other times I chose not to!?!?!”

  2. Dan says:

    Love how he tries to lump us in with him. “I would humbly ask people to ask themselves if their own mobile was taken and every message scrutinized, would there be embarrassing texts”.

    Probably not. But regardless, there’s a little difference between ‘embarrassing’ and the sexist, racist and homophobic ramblings of some belligerent bigot. Fight your own battles you troglodyte bastard!

  3. SteveH says:

    Mackay, you have revealed your true self, and you are nothing but a very unpleasant human being.

  4. Haywired says:

    “Some of my best friends are gay snakes”.

  5. Ron says:

    I don’t send text messages with my mobile phone. So…wouldn’t find anything embarrassing on mine, pal.

  6. Ron says:

    Oh, and Chris…eat biscuits and shout at clouds. That is pure gold! Ha, that made my day.

  7. Al says:

    Pies must have a lot of very squeaky clean readers or a load of hypocritical readers, I’m going for the latter and agree with Mackay, if most peoples phones were taken and analysed there would be at least 3 things on their they wouldn’t be proud of

  8. Al says:

    Oh, and Ron… if that made your day you need to get a life you insufferable bore and also take your tongue out of Chris’s ass
