Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was unhappy with Nani after his dismissal against West Ham yesterday.

Ferguson offered no excuse for Nani's headbutt on Lucas Neill, which left referee Mike Riley with little alternative than to dismiss the Portugal winger, who will now be ruled out of the Wigan trip plus the first two games of next season.

"There is no excuse," said the Scot. "He showed a measure of immaturity and we will deal with it."

It was an ominous warning for Nani, who knows his conduct might have proved costly if West Ham had shown more ambition than they ultimately proved capable of.
