In January final 12 months, he tweeted: “Them Romanian beggars in Edinburgh ain’t hungry!! Simply drove previous all of them prepared to modify up begging posts and ALL em fats as huge juicy over fed pigs!”

He apologised for any “unintended offence”, however in an interview with John Beattie on BBC Drivetime he appeared to defend himself.

Requested what it was wish to be in that center of the row, he stated:

“It made no distinction to me in any respect. I used to be an expert fighter for 20 plus years. These type of verbal assaults and what you’ll deem abuse meant nothing to me. It was like water off a duck’s again, made no curiosity, didn’t maintain me up at night time, didn’t trouble me within the slightest”.

I’ve bought an excellent buddy whose mom’s purse was robbed by these specific Romanian gangs that hand around in Edinburgh, they aren’t ravenous, I can let you know that for positive.

“My reference to their weight was that they had been undoubtedly not individuals who had been ravenous, that’s what I’d identified beforehand and I’m not bothered about it”.

Requested if he thought independence will ever occur, he stated: “It’s not wanting nice is it, proper now I’d in all probability say no, it’s not wanting good”.
