“Due to our performance and the importance of the game I responded not so eloquently to solitary supporter who had shouted `Beagrie you're a mercenary`, explained Peter.
“I apologise to any body in the vicinity that heard my response and would like to point out that a mercenary goes to a club for money, usually abroad. I had this option before joining Scunthorpe and declined it.”
Iron-Bru.net does not condone Peter's reaction, and indeed professional footballers should do their best to walk away from such criticism. But, we agree with the player when he says he is not a mercenary. If he was, he could be plying his trade at the other side of the Humber now, or in a higher division. Here's to more tormenting of left-backs next season Beags.
