I offered Duncan Ferguson out for a fight and immediately regretted it when he waited for me topless in the tunnel | The Sun

DUNCAN FERGUSON once waited topless in the tunnel for Jimmy Bullard after he cheekily offered to fight him.

The former Everton hardman was sent off against Wigan when he hit Paul Scharner in 2006.

Bullard got involved in the incident and clearly angered the Scottish striker even more.

The Soccer AM host told talkSPORT: "David Moyes sent Ferguson on with ten minutes to go. It’s a corner, it gets cleared out and all I hear is our centre-half on the deck.

"Duncan Ferguson’s running out smiling and growling and I’m like, he’s given him a clump obviously.

"So I’m looking around and I see Lee McCullough is a Scottish boy in our team and James McFadden is a Scottish boy in their team and I’m going ‘is he alright?’

"Is Dunc alright because his eyes are gone, he’s ready for a tear up?

"I’m grabbing him and I’ve got to be a bit careful.

"Remember he’s been on the pitch five or ten minutes – straight red [card].

"As he walks off, I just get in my head, ‘see you in the tunnel there Dunc, I’ll see you in the tunnel’.

"As I said it, Lee McCullough went ‘I wouldn’t have done that’.

"[Ferguson] goes ‘No problem wee man.’ So he’s waiting in the tunnel with his shirt off.

"I’ve got ten minutes to play and I’m looking over and McCullough’s gone ‘look at the tunnel'.

"I’m looking over and going ‘oh no’.

"The final whistle went, I’m still giving a standing ovation, all that’s left [in the stadium] is a pigeon and a crisp packet. I’m like, I don’t want to walk in.

"He grabs me round the neck, picks me up and gives it to me proper and all the boys have run in and left me.

"But what people don’t know about that story is two weeks after, I went to Goodwood races, big Dunc’s there.

“The only person I didn’t want to see. My heart went through my throat. Then all the boys grabbed me, put me in front of him.

“He went ‘ah don’t worry about it’ with a big cigar in his gob and a bottle of champagne. He was pukka."
