Barry Ferguson, MBE will not play as a Ranger and will not represent Scotland anymore.
For drinking and flashing V signs no less. What is a footballer to do? Drink ginseng tea and curl up with a book?
Joey Barton can stub out a lit cigar in a youth player's eye and still play for Man City and get an England call up. He can assault a team mate on the training ground and then flee the country. This strangely increases his transfer worth when moving to Newcastle.
Sometimes it makes no sense.
