In "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" of J.K Rowlling there is sentence:

“Who’s that?” glugged Myrtle miserably. “Come to throw something else at me?”

What is the meaning of the "glugged" in this context?

    It is in place of "said" but describes the manner/sound that was heard.

    glug (glug), v., glugged, glug•ging, n.
    1. to make the sound of liquid pouring from a bottle.
