Birmingham’s Bowyer apologises for Granny abuse

Birmingham City’s Lee Bowyer has apologised for abusing a West Bromwich Albion season-ticket holder on the weekend.

The 33-year old midfielder allegedly called Baggies supporter Sandra Cox a “f****** c***” in front of her seven-year-old grandson Luke in a heated part of Birmingham’s 3-1 loss at The Hawthorns.

Bowyer has since apologised for his outburst which was confirmed by a Birmingham spokesman.

“A lady complained straight away to one of our senior stewards that she had been verbally abused, but the club are also aware that Lee Bowyer then made a complete and profuse apology to her,” he said.

“That is the end of the matter as far as West Bromwich Albion are concerned.”
