Doncaster firebrand Diouf in new spit storm

Doncaster Rovers firebrand El Hadji Diouf has sparked more controversy.

Doncaster Rovers firebrand El Hadji Diouf has sparked more controversy.

The former Blackburn Rovers and Bolton Wanderers striker was involved in an angry bust-up with Blackpool keeper Matt Gilks after scoring a penalty in his side's 3-1 defeat on Tuesday.

Blackpool's two-goal Gary Taylor-Fletcher claimed Diouf then spat towards Gilks in the tunnel at half-time.

Referee Gary Sutton spoke to the duo and is not expected to take any further action.

Taylor-Fletcher claimed: "Everyone knows what he was like. It was in the tunnel. He was the same when we played Blackburn last season. He is a great player and it is a shame he has that side to him."

Rovers media manager Steve Uttley said: "Nothing happened as far as we know. Nobody here saw anything."
