Doncaster Rovers have sacked the woman who plays their mascot Donny Dog after she posed for the Sunday Sport in her underwear in a bid to raise money for charity.
Tracy Chandler, 40, appeared in the risqué shoot with Donny the Dog's head, and Doncaster then decided to sack her by email saying she had "disgraced the club".
Chandler said she was devastated to be sacked from the role she has performed on a voluntary basis for the last three years, and she revealed that the purpose of the photo shoot was to raise money for NSPCC.
"I'm absolutely devastated. I've not stopped crying all morning. It (the email) just said that they didn't need my services anymore and that I'd disgraced the club," she told BBC Five LIVE.
"I've raised a lot of money for charity. I've fetched Donny Dog out of hiding. I'm the one who pushed him into charity work."
Chandler was then quoted by The Sun saying that she was particularly annoyed at the sacking because the club allowed the team's players to produce a naked calendar last year for the same charity.
"Maybe they have forgotten but it wasn't that long ago that some of the players did a naked calendar for charity with footballs strategically placed to protect their modesty," she said.
"If I want to do something for charity and in this case to help the NSPCC charity, why shouldn't I? It's my body.
"I said I would do it if they gave the money to the NSPCC but Rovers said they wouldn't accept the donation.
"I can't believe what has happened. I am livid that they have done this. I have worked hard as the mascot and I didn't even get paid for it. I loved the job and I was more than happy to do it."
Doncaster have refused to comment on the story.
