Spurs cult hero Darren Anderton gets into sweary rant at journalist

Who'd have thought Darren Anderton would get that mad!

Remember Darren Anderton? Of course you do! Former Tottenham Hotspur and England midfielder, quiet as a church mouse and genuine good bloke.

Well, you may also remember that Anderton managed to get himself a bit of a reputation for being injured quite a lot. In fact, it was so bad that he got himself the nickname "Sicknote" because of all the time he had to take off through niggles.

While he had plenty of career highlights, like missing that easy chance in extra-time against Germany at Euro 96 or that brilliant goal against Colombia at France 98, his injury proneness has really tainted everyone's opinion of him.

However, he still managed to play 299 league games for Spurs and he was invited along to take part in a half-time crossbar challenge on Monday at White Hart Lane.

But he didn't take part in it and Five Live commentator Conor McNamara tweeted this: 

I mean Anderton getting injured, that's just classic isn't it? However, Mr Anderton was NOT impressed with McNamara and tweeted back just how unimpressed he was, saying: "@ConorMcNamaraIE pathetic... Well done you lying piece of ****.. I went onto the pitch to hand out prizes.. You should be ashamed of yourself."

Oooh handbags! That tweet is more shocking than Anderton's lung-bursting run to track back against Argentina... well played Darren!
