Celtic still not happy.

Celtic still not happy with Sky.

CELTIC STATEMENT

The statement issued by Sky Television is inadequate. It does not identify the source of the translation or why phrases, which bore no relationship to the words used by Mr Morelos, were introduced into it.

In view of the substantial issues of public interest involved, Celtic have lodged a complaint with the broadcasting regulator, Ofcom, who can seek the necessary answers and adjudicate accordingly.

For our supporters’ information, Celtic’s communication to Ofcom can be viewed below:

Dear Sir/Madam

On behalf of Celtic Football Club, I wish to lodge an official complaint in respect of an interview with the footballer, Alfredo Morelos, which was broadcast on all Sky platforms on Monday 3 February.

Mr Morelos spoke in Spanish and sub-titles were provided. It is our contention that the presentation of this interview was grossly and irresponsibly misleading due to the wildly inaccurate and tendentious translation which was provided in the sub-titles.

The effect and, we believe, purpose of this misrepresentation was to broadcast offensive and incendiary allegations against Celtic Football Club and its supporters, by attempting to attribute these – quite unfairly – to Mr Morelos. It is difficult to think of a more irresponsible piece of “sporting journalism".

Celtic Football Club has issued a statement on the subject which is attached for your convenience. We understand that the interview is no longer available through Sky Television which is, in itself, recognition of its deficiencies. On the basis of the inaccurate translation, highly damaging and wholly inaccurate stories were briefed to the press.

I am therefore asking Ofcom to conduct an investigation in order to answer the following questions:

1 Who was responsible for the inaccurate translation?
2 What steps were taken by Sky Television to ascertain the accuracy, or otherwise, of the translation provided?
3 What part did Sky Television play in briefing the story, based on the inaccurate translation, to the wider media?

We believe this is a matter of substantial public interest for the following reasons:

1. Issues of racism and sectarianism are far too important to be manipulated in this way by any broadcaster or third party.
2. The use of mis-translation to convey false meaning is a dangerous form of “fake news" which must be condemned and sanctioned.
3. Mr Morelos has been seriously misrepresented and is deserving of apology and explanation.

I look forward to your early response.

Yours faithfully

Ah - 'Grey Line Man'.

It's an odd thing - it really is.

Dare to debate (and not kowtow the party line) with the 'regulars' and you are ostracised.

Point out irony/hypocrisy/you're talking rubbish and that's it - the wee gang kick-in.

The colour of the scarf on here clearly dictates how things run and that is quite sad.

You’re not debating though.

You just jump in every now and again and try and pick holes in something a poster has written and when that goes down it’s usual path of failure just resort to whitabootery or claim it’s all so boring.

Strange tbh

I see he has filtered me. Nice to see he is scared of what I can reveal.

Pity he doesn't realise filter means he doesn't see me but I see him.

Oh the things I could tell about the surviving member of Pequod

It's beyond my understanding tbh. It must be like a sort of Stockholm syndrome that he has.

His knowledge of filtering is about on a par with his knowledge of how minutes per goal work.

Ren't Free?

Is he French? What position does he play? What's his goals to minutes ratio?
