British chef Gordon Ramsay has admitted there may have been "inaccuracies" in accounts of his soccer-playing past after a weekend newspaper report said he had lied about appearing for Scottish team Rangers.

The News of the World weekly tabloid said Ramsay, 42, never actually signed for the Glasgow club and questioned whether he had ever played in the first team.

The article quoted Ramsay as telling a radio show in 2002 that he played three first team games. His career was cut short by injury, he added. Ramsay put any "inaccuracies" in his recollection down to the passage of time. - Reuters
