Former Justice Secretary now Health Secretary Humza Yousaf has come under increasing pressure to apologise for his outburst earlier this year following a fake video the notorious Celtic fan backed.
The video, officially, and legally outed as a doctored fraud, prompted the ex-Justice chief to attack Rangers and demand action be taken over the ‘guilty’ players, with the Parkhead faithful not only releasing social media statements to the effect, but going on national TV and supporting BBC chief Rangers-hating hack Chris McLaughlin with live interviews to the same end.
The video, formally confirmed today to be a complete fabrication, prompted the justice secretary to peddle his anti-Rangers nonsense plus allege his receipt of ‘anti-Catholic racism’, before First Minister Nicole Sturgeon went into extreme damage control and shifted his position over to the Health Sector.
And today with Police Scotland confirming categorically the video is a doctored piece of libel, Yousaf is under pressure to acknowledge and apologise for the scurrilous accusations he made.
True, he added a ‘disclaimer’, but the fact a Celtic fan in power made any assertions one way or the other went outside of his professional jurisdiction and way into personal vendetta.
Don’t hold your breath for the retraction though…
