BT Sport Apologise For Robbie Savage Chants From Newcastle United Fans
BT Sport were forced to apologise after Newcastle United fans could be heard singing about Robbie Savage.
The away end began to chant mercilessly about Savage by singing: "Robbie Savage, you're a w**ker" during Newcastle's FA Cup third round fixture with Rochdale.
Commentator Peter Drury immediately addressed the chant before issuing an apology to BT Sport viewers.
"We apologise for the bad language for the supporters, we are right among them as you can probably here," he said during the broadcast.
