Rob the gob; WORLD OF FOOTBALL.

Byline: KEVIN McALLION

LIFE at the bottom of La Liga clearly isn't agreeing with Villarreal star Robert Pires.

The gallus Gaul lost his cool after a 2-1 defeat at fellow strugglers Xerez left Villarreal propping up the table.

And he stunned ref Antonio Rubinos Perez with a foul-mouthed outburst as the teams trooped off the field at full time.

The poor whistler said: "When I was booking one of his team-mates for dissent Pires came up to me and said: 'You are a son of a whore'."

Nice to see that long spell in England left Robert with an arsenal of insults.
