Well, can you believe it ... Wayne Rooney decked him in a plush Manchester restaurant on Saturday night!

Yes, I know we shouldn't laugh, but sometimes it's better to show you emotions. The 20-year-old Manchester United striker was with fiancee Coleen McLoughlin and three other couples at the Panacea restaurant, when Gray wandered over, apparently under the influence of alcohol.

The footballers exchanged words before it is alleged Rooney, while still seated, punched Gray, giving the player, who is now at Blackburn, a black eye.

Good on yer Wayne. And to think he almost signed for the Toon ... and that would have made it even better!
