THE story about John Doolan being told to cover up a crucifix if he wanted to be served in his local pub got our online readers talking.

Bosses at The Doon Inn, in Blantyre, Lanarkshire, have since apologised to him.

Craig Lockerbie said: "The same thing happened to me in Glasgow city centre.

"I live in Northampton and was visiting Glasgow for an evening with my friends and I was told the same thing."

John F H Ramsden said: "I'm not a Roman Catholic but this is shameful.

"If Jews, Sikhs and Muslims can wear religious attire in public this man can too. As a Protestant I wear a cross and I would be deeply offended if I was told to remove it."

Graham Rankin added: "It's not good that the country is bowing to the easily offended. I have been turned away for wearing a blue and red blazer, a Scots Guards regimental lapel pin, a Brigade of Guards tie, a Union Flag on my shirt, an England rugby shirt, a Rangers top and a Chelsea top."
