Gibraltarians FUMING after Ronnie O’Sullivan says he’d rather ‘sleep in pig sty’ than play snooker in Gibraltar

CHEEKY: Ronnie O’Sullivan and his inflammatory online post

GIBRALTARIANS have been left fuming after Ronnie O’Sullivan ridiculed the Gibraltar Open snooker competition.

In an online post the five-time world champion said: “I’d rather sleep in a pig sty than have to go and play in the Gibraltar Open.”

He later added: “The Players are the last to get thought of on the circuit. The conditions and venues are very poor.”

SLAMMED: O’Sullivan’s tweet which angered Gibraltar

But dozens of Gibraltarians and those living on the Rock hit back at O’Sullivan, with many calling him a ‘pig’.

Bill Pisani, the admin of Gibraltar group ‘Speak Freely’, said: “What a t***, let him go and sleep in a pig sty then.”

CRITIC: O’Sullivan slammed the playing conditions on the snooker circuit

Another member of the group, Signora Bauti said: “Shame on you Ronnie. You should use Steve Davies’ example. He was a real English gentleman when he visited sunny Gibraltar!”

Gibraltarian, Norbert Nicholas Sene added: “No wonder you want to sleep in a pig sty Ronnie, that’s the place you call home.”

CHAMPION: Stuart Bingham won the Gibraltar on Sunday

The tournament, held at the Tercentenary Sports Hall was won by Stuart Bingham who scooped £25,000 in prize money.

The Welshman and 2015 world champion beat Ryan Day 4-1 in the final on Sunday.

Bingham said: “I’m over the moon. I played well from the off, so it was great to keep it going all the way through the weekend.”
