The SimpsonsCivic officials at two Scottish cities are fighting over The Simpsons' character Groundskeeper Willie - both claiming the fictional janitor hails from their home.

Glasgow has a picture of Willie - voiced by American Dan Castellaneta - in its online hall of fame, citing a 1997 episode of the animated comedy, in which the character describes himself as "the ugliest man in Glasgow."

However, he is also shown rooting for Aberdeen's soccer team in a dream in a 2003 episode, prompting sporting chiefs in the Highlands city to claim him too.

Soccer club spokesman Dave McDermid tells Britain's The Sun, "As much as it may disappoint people in Glasgow, we are in no doubt that Willie is a proud Aberdonian."

Back in 2005 a newspaper poll found the character was the most recognized Scot in the world, ahead of former James Bond Sean Connery and Ewan McGregor.
