McKenna says sorry to fans for red cards

Berwick Rangers midfielder Michael McKenna has contacted the club’s official site with a statement to fans following his third red card of the season on Saturday afternoon.

McKenna, who received his third red card of the season last Saturday against Clyde, said: “I’d like to place on record my apologies to the fans, my team=mates and the staff of Berwick Rangers with regards to my dismissal on Saturday.

“I know I’ve let them down by receiving three red cards in such a short space of time. Prior to this run I’d never been sent off in my life, so it’s not in my usual character.

“But I know I have done wrong. It’s not fair to keep putting the team under pressure by getting myself sent off.

“In honesty, I have a high level of competitiveness. I want the best for the club and I’ve let that get the better of me.

“I think that maybe makes things a little harder for me to control. But I know that in future I have to change my approach.

“I understand decisions will go against us and I accept that. I need to learn from this. I know I need to start letting somebody else do the talking from now on.

“What has happened is obviously disappointing but it has happened, and I need to try both to work on it and learn from it.

“In future I’ll be trying to take a few seconds out and let other guys like Jonny (Fairbairn) deal with it. He’s the captain and a little calmer than me so I’ll try use that to my advantage.”
