  5. Ronnie O'Sullivan remarks 'derogatory' - Doherty

    Ronnie O'Sullivan's comments about the standard of snooker are "derogatory" to the game's younger players, says former world champion Ken Doherty.

    Five-time winner O'Sullivan said he would have to "lose an arm and a leg to fall out of the top 50".

    Doherty said: "Name another sportsman that would slag off the rest of the tour saying they are not that good.

    "The standard is as high as ever. It may be a bit tongue-in-cheek but it is not nice. I think it is derogatory."
