Everton’s former Interim Coach and now Assistant Manager, the legendary Duncan Ferguson is famous for his raging rampage back when he was a football player.


Career’s Scandal

A hot-tempered player of 1,93 cm height and 85 kg weight, Ferguson was quite an intimidating beast on the pitch. Moreover, he’s the first and only Scottish football player so far to be arrested for misconduct on the pitch. During the match against Raith Rovers in April 1994 in the Scotland Premier League, Ferguson headbutted the visitor’s John McStay. The referee didn’t see the incident and Ferguson wasn’t sent off that match, but he was subsequently charged and found guilty of assault.
