BLACKPOOL chairman Karl Oyston last night apologised for sending abusive text messages to one of the club’s supporters during an angry, expletive-ridden exchange.

Football League board member Oyston was accused of branding Steve Smith a “massive retard” during the row which erupted last month, while also referring to him as an “intellectual cripple”.

Oyston said: “I would like to unreservedly apologise for any offence or distress caused by my text responses.”
