Pascali: The Kilmarnock skipper is angry about Broadfoot's allegations
Manuel Pascali has branded Kirk Broadfoot a publicity-seeking coward after the Rangers defender alleged he received a death threat from the Kilmarnock captain.
Broadfoot claimed Pascali was 'in my face saying he was going to kill me' after the pair clashed at Ibrox on Tuesday night.
But the Kilmarnock skipper has angrily denied the claim and insists the Scotland international is lying.
Pascali said in the Daily Record: "Who will be the judge? I would like people who know both of us to decide. They will have an idea.
"It has hurt me as I know the importance of the word kill. It should never be used for fun."
