Red scarf: Take it or leave it

Shocked Cardiff City fans have reacted to the club's decision to hand out free red scarves at Tuesday night's Championship clash with Brighton.
The club plans to take pictures of fans wearing the scarves and offer free season tickets to those whose pictures are published.

The controversial scarf which has the word Cardiff emblazoned across it will be handed out to fans as they enter the stadium on Tuesday night.
Actor Jonny Owen, who is a lifelong Bluebirds fan, tweeted: "#donttakethescarf "if you are Cardiff and forever a Bluebird then please re-tweet that you will peacefully and politely refuse the scarf."
After that tweet picked up a lot of reaction from fans of differing opinions, Cardiff City media manager Barrie McAulliffe cleared up the situation, tweeting: "Not on your seat, handed to you when you come in. If you don't want one, say no thanks to the nice people on the gate. Easy."
Manager Malky Mackay has today spoken on the issue, saying he realises that the issue has split the fans but urges everyone who turns up to the match to get right behind the team on Tuesday night.
