Manchester United defender Wes Brown found himself in hot water last night.

The Mirror says Brown, 28, allegedly shoved a group of men who were teasing him and his teammates, including Rio Ferdinand.

A witness at the Circle club in Manchester said: "The guys in the booth next to them were these loud, cocky businessmen.

"They started goading the Man United players. Wes Brown was pushing one of them a lot.

"It was all over without any punches being thrown. No one was hurt. The bouncers ejected two of the other group and the players were able to finish their drinks."
