Discipline and No Final Bid
Martin O'Neill has dismissed reports that Liverpool have made a 'take it or leave it' £15 million offer for Barry, but he has been disciplined over his comments in the NotW.
I believe Liverpool have also gone to press in stating that no offer has been made as was rumoured earlier today, so Gareth must be absolutely chuffed that Liverpool still haven't come back in for him.
After his reported quotes in the News of the World - I'm still thinking it was third party via his agent with his permission, or he did in fact develop a case of the chavs - the club have disciplined him.
In a short statement O'Neill said:
'There's no truth in this morning's reports and the situation remains the same.
'Gareth will not be returning to training tomorrow and he has been disciplined after giving an unauthorised interview to the News of the World.'
Perfect response by the club, Barry would do well to remember who pays his wages.
Whether those quotes came out of his mouth, or his agents, the club's response prove the validity of them and to be disciplined he had to authorise it.
A very stupid boy.
