Duncan 'disorderly' Ferguson

The former Everton, Newcastle United and Rangers striker was notorious for his 'hardman' image, and best remembered for having an aggressive and highly-competitive style of play, resulting in nine red cards and a three-month prison sentence following an on-field headbutt of Raith Rovers defender John McStay in 1994.

Ferguson's 'Glasgow kiss' is the most infamous of his four convictions for assault, two of which arose from taxi-rank scuffles, and one altercation with a fisherman in a pub in Anstruther, Scotland.

It's worth noting that the 41-year-old also liked to fight crime as well - like in 2001, when he was the victim of a burglary attempt at his home on Merseyside. Ferguson confronted the two men and was able to detain one, who subsequently spent three days in hospital!
