Some things are inevitable in football: Like Messi scoring against Arsenal, Neil Warnock signing Paddy Kenny and trouble finding Gary Madine.
The Bolton striker was dropped for Tuesday's 1-0 defeat against Birmingham City after allegedly swearing at manager Neil Lennon, per the Daily Mail, following Saturday's 1-1 draw with Queens Park Rangers.
Madine arrived at the Macron Stadium last summer with a bad-boy reputation, having served five months for affray while at previous club Sheffield Wednesday and been convicted for causing actual bodily harm - for which he received 250 hours of unpaid work - during his Carlisle United days.
This wouldn't be the first time Madine and Lennon have exchanged verbals, after the 25-year-old was caught shouting at the former Celtic boss by television cameras covering November's game against Brentford.
And much like his off-field antics, Madine's performances have also split opinion among the Burnden faithful, with just five goals arriving in 27 Championship appearances.
With Bolton seven points adrift of safety in 23rd, the Geordie's latest outburst was the final straw for some on Twitter, although Lennon still seems to come off worst!
Really hope Madine is back on Saturday!!— ✨ Bethany ✨ (@xBethlouise_) February 24, 2016
Shows madine cares! Being massively blown out of proportion as usual #BWFC— Tom Southworth (@TommyTwoCan94) February 24, 2016
@MarcIles I know, it's a hard one. But we're a better team with Madine... He may miss sitters but he works bloody hard and wins many headers— Dan Johns (@danjohns88) February 24, 2016
@MarcIles if he lets madine get away with it then they will all do it. Don't care how good or bad he is he cannot undermine the manager.— JME1974 (@JME19742) February 24, 2016
@MarcIles maybe drop both madine and Lennon for the next game! We might have a chance ;)— Chris McKeown (@cemck1) February 24, 2016
@Nidgster I'd be happy with brown coming in and madine exiled to the moon or something— Matt™ (@TheMattNuttall) February 24, 2016
@MarcIles he's got to go and take madine with him— gavin smith (@walsallwanderer) February 24, 2016
So at bwfc Lennon bans madine for something he does daily and of course let's not forget his girlfriend threats!! Kettle pot black methinks.— Ace (@Acebwfc66) February 24, 2016
