George Best Airport not for everyone?

I see there's been a mixed reaction to the news that Belfast City Airport is to be renamed in memory of the soccer legend George Best. Personally I think this is an excellent idea and a fitting tribute to a superb sportsman but it seems that not everybody agrees with that view prompting George's family to hit back at the critics.

Personally I think this is very unfortunate. George Best was one of the few figures that could unite us rather than divide us and its a real pity that this magnificent gesture threatens to be overshadowed in this manner.
