Sky Reporter Gives Take On BZG Statement

There has been no reporting from either Sky Sports or the Chronicle about Peter Redding’s alleged statements from BZG. The statement has however been reported in the Sun and in outlets in Dubai among others.

After being asked on Twitter why there has been no reports of the BZG statement, Keith Downie of Sky Sports simply stated the following:
