Soccer AM cleared over Kyle F-Word

TV WATCHDOGS have cleared comedy football show Soccer AM after complaints were made following an appearance by Scots rockers The View where one of the band swore.

The notorious Dundee band appeared on the show on February 7 this year, where one of them used the F-word.

But despite three complaints from viewers over the language, which happened at 10.45am, broadcasting watchdog Ofcom said the matter had been resolved by the show's presenters and no further action was being taken against Sky.

"This was a live broadcast; and that the language was clearly not used with the intention to offend, given the guest’s own reaction to using the word," the watchdog said.

"Further, both presenters immediately apologised to viewers and the guests were warned by one of the presenters to “be careful” in future."
