Complainant Name:
Know The Score Books Ltd

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Scotland on Sunday

Complaint:

Mr Simon Lowe, Managing Director of Know the Score Books Ltd, complained that an article based on the autobiography of former footballer John Wark had presented the information contained within the book in an inaccurate and misleading manner.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction:

On 15 March 2009 the Scotland on Sunday published an article about Wark On, the autobiography of former Scotland footballer John Wark. We would like to make clear that Mr Wark does not consider the entire current Liverpool FC squad to be "a massive waste of money", as stated in the article. In fact, Mr Wark was referring in name to four specific Liverpool players, rather than the squad as a whole. In addition, Mr Wark has asked us to point out that - when he sold his allocation of FA Cup final tickets in 1978 - this practice was both lawful and within Football Association rules. We are happy to set the record straight.

Report: 80
