ANDY Murray continues to support the push for Scottish independence but regrets the wording of his tweet which created such an uproar on the eve of last week's referendum.

The tennis star has spoken for the first time since receiving a torrent of abuse on Twitter for his condemnation of the ultimately successful 'No' campaign.

"It wasn't something I would do again," Murray told the BBC.

"It was a very emotional day for Scottish people and the whole country and the whole of the UK — it was a big day.

"The way it was worded, the way I sent it, is not really in my character. I don't normally do stuff like that. So, yeah, I was a bit disappointed by that."

But the 27 year-old added that he did not "regret giving an opinion".

"I think everyone should be allowed that," he said.

Murray's tweet, displayed above, was retweeted almost 20,000 times.

More than 3.6 million people voted in the referendum, which finished 55 per cent 'No' to 45 per cent 'Yes'.
