Jim Beglin has apologised for making a 'culturally insensitive remark' during Man City's win over PSG on Tuesday night.

Jim Beglin has apologised after the broadcaster made a 'culturally insensitive remark' during CBS Sports' coverage of Manchester City's win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Beglin, 57, referenced Angel di Maria's 'Latino temperament' after the Argentine was dismissed for kicking out at City's Fernandinho during PSG's 2-0 loss in the Champions League semi-final second leg.

Former Liverpool full-back Beglin then took to Twitter after the game to issue a full statement over the remark, which he described as 'culturally insensitive'.

'I apologise for my culturally insensitive remarks during the Champions League tie between Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain,' the 57-year-old tweeted.

'In answer to those accusing me of racism during the Champions League semi-final, I am sitting at home watching on TV and not commentating,' Tyldesley tweeted.

Tyldesley had been accused of 'fat shaming' social media influencer Chunkz during last year's Soccer Aid, broadcast on ITV.City advanced to the final for the first time in their history on Tuesday night as a Riyad Mahrez double clinched a 4-1 aggregate win over the underwhelming Parisians in testing conditions in Manchester.
