Shamed former Sheffield United striker Ched Evans is being urged to apologise if he wants to wear a red and white shirt again.

Ex Sports Minister and Sheffield MP Richard Caborn said the convicted rapist – released from jail today – needs to show remorse if he is to resume his career.

Blades fan Mr Caborn told The Star: “If he publicly apologises, or if his appeal is successful, he should be given a second chance.”

Former Blades boss Neil Warnock added: “When you have served your time you are allowed to get on with your life - that is the law.”

But Sheffield Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre is outraged.

Manager Meera Kulkarni said: “A convicted rapist who has shown no remorse should not be reinstated to his club.”

Two time Rotherham United boss Ronnie Moore said Evans had paid for his ‘horrendous mistake’ but warned: “It will be a brave club that takes him on.”
