FOOTBALL: RUSH RAP FOR NEV.
MANCHESTER United's Gary Neville was branded "an absolute disgrace" by Liverpool legend and striker- coach Ian Rush for demanding that Liverpool skipper Sami Hyypia was sent off.
Neville raced to the scene in the fourth minute of the 4-_-0 thrashing to have words with referee Mike Riley about the incident when Hyypia bundled down Ruud van Nistelrooy.
Rush said: "Pros don't want that, it was diabolical. Sami had to go, no complaints, but it's disgraceful from a fellow professional."
