From A Leslie

Sir: The Independent is to be congratulated for giving front page cover to the jailing of Duncan Ferguson for his assault of a fellow professional on the field of play.

Because of his activities off the field, I was surprised that Rangers signed him in the first place. Ferguson is also not a good example for the Everton manager, Joe Royle, to offer as a hero to all the young Everton supporters.

Yours faithfully


Maltby, Rotherham.
