Rooney collected his tenth booking of the season during Everton’s 1-1 draw at Leicester to incur a two-game ban.

Ferguson saw red, literally and metaphorically, in the same game after collecting two bookings in three minutes for clashes with Nikos Dabizas and Steffen Freund.

After his sending off Duncan Disorderly proceeded to grab Freund around the throat - why did he stop? - and is almost certain to face a lengthy ban.
