Stop Press - Butcher's Not a Bigot!

Last updated : 03 September 2005 By Firparkcorner

In order to promote Terry’s autobiography, his publishers (Highdown Books) are making the best of their media contacts. They are owned by Trinity Mirror who also own the Daily Record and Sunday Mail. They also have a long list of local papers in their collection so we can expect to see more cheap advertising in the S&UN Lanarkshire weeklies.

The book cover
But what are these headline grabbing headlines about? “BUTCHER: MY WIFE STOPPED ME BEING A BIGOT” – boils down to the fact that "It took my wife Rita to see it and she told me to have a good look at myself in the mirror..".

Motherwell fans need no reassurance from tabloids that our manager has long since distanced himself from the hateful paranoia displayed at times by both sides of the Old Firm.

It seems fair to speculate that he has rarely enjoyed a footballing role as much as he is experiencing at Fir Park.

The job satisfaction gained from working with a small club and working with young developing talent is reward enough.

No matter what gory tales emerge from the forthcoming book we’ll be happy to see him celebrate his next victory in claret and amber.
