Manchester United's grotesque England international defender Rio Ferdinand, who is part-Irish, is in hot water with Police after an unsavoury incident with a member of the Old Trafford crowd.
The incident, which came during the second half of United's game with Blackburn Rovers last Saturday, saw Ferdinand violently kick the ball into a group of spectators that were 'giving him a hard time'.
One of the staunch fans, Elsie Tatter from Weatherfield, was hit full in the face. Her false teeth were damaged, and make-up dislodged.
John Urinal, who was sitting two rows behind the injured fan, told how Mrs Tatter and her group had been heckling the United stars.
"She was moaning an' mithering", he said. "Rooney this, Ronaldo that. Giggs this, Ferdinand that. Then Rio let fly. It was his best moment in the whole bloody game. Her teeth flew over my shoulder."
