Scottish Soccer Player Admits To Booze-And-Hooker-Fueled Bender

It was about a month ago when Paul Slane, once a rising star in the Scottish Premier League and a member of Celtic, tweeted out some salacious photos of himself getting, uh, "friendly" with two women (NSFW picture after the jump). This came shortly after Slane suffered a series of debilitating injuries and was was let got by Celtic. At the time, Slane claimed that the pictures were fake, but now he admits that they are in fact real, and that they were taken during an extended bender he went on in Amsterdam after leaving Celtic.

From the Scottish Sun:

“I got a £10,000 pay-off from Celtic for what was left of my contract and most of it was to cover the costs of my hip operation.

“But I spent over half of it on nights out—and Amsterdam cost me a fortune.

“I was completely stupid. I totally overdid it. I spent a lot of money on drinks for my pals. There were also a few hookers.

“I thought, ‘Why shouldn’t I just go out and have a good time?’ When I look back over those few weeks I’ve got no idea what I was doing or why — I went a bit crazy.”

Well, that's certainly one way to deal with the disappointment that comes with career-threatening injuries and joblessness. Slane promises that he's moved passed his dark phase, though, and is committed to resurrecting his career. In the meantime, I'm going to try and think of a way to explain away a dalliance with prostitutes that is more hilarious than "There were also a few hookers." I don't think I'll be able to.
