Scottish referee Craig Napier has come out as gay, the 56 year old was speaking to the media on his announcement and said; “We need to see the climate change so that people feel they can be their true self and live happily and comfortably in their own skin.”

Fair play to him a brave move and one that shouldn’t be a big thing anymore. Hopefully he receives support for this and doesn’t get any online abuse. Football is a very man’s man world and someone coming out gay can be quite difficult.
