Newcastle star calls Young a 'disgrace' and a 'cheat'
Newcastle United star Ryan Taylor has taken to Twitter to hit out at the ‘antics’ of Manchester United winger Ashley Young, labelling him a ‘disgrace’ and a ‘cheat’.
The Red Devils flyer earned a penalty in their game against Aston Villa, his former club, but appeared to go down easily under a challenge from Ciaran Clark.
This comes just a week after Young dived to win a spot-kick against QPR at Old Trafford in a 2-0 victory, an event which also saw Shaun Derry receive a red card.
And versatile Toon player Taylor has slammed his fellow professional’s behaviour on the field.
He raged: “Ashley Young is an absolute DISGRACE. He's the biggest cheat in the league. His antics are a joke....” [sic]
And Tottenham star Jermaine Jenas, who was on loan at Aston Villa before injury curtailed his season, added: “Never a pen the refs having a laugh!” [sic]
