Manchester United could become embroiled in a disciplinary dispute with Paul Scholes, David May and Paul Parker, after fining the trio a week's wages for breaking a club curfew.

The United manager, Alex Ferguson, fined striker Scholes and defenders May and Parker for drinking late in the team hotel after the Paul McStay testimonial match in Glasgow last month. Scholes is facing a pounds 4,000 fine, while Parker and May are on bigger wages of pounds 5,000 a week.

The players have until the end of the week to appeal, under the club's disciplinary system, but they may also seek the arbitration of the Professional Footballers' Association.
