Truth hurts Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson admitted he told referee Mark Clattenburg "exactly what I thought" of him at Bolton on Saturday afternoon during his side´s 1-0 defeat - and was promptly sent to the stand.

The Red Devils chief was furious at Clattenburg´s failure to clamp down on what he felt was over-aggressive tactics from the relegation-threatened hosts, who recorded their first home win over United since December 1978.

He waited for the official by the tunnel at the interval to offer a clear piece of his mind, and afterwards said: "I told the referee what I thought - some referees don´t like that. They don´t like the truth. But I just told him how bad he was in the first-half."
