When asked about his thoughts on Rio Ferdinand's protest, Sir Alex Ferguson said:

"Well I am disappointed because I said [he was against the shirt protest] at a press conference yesterday - and it is embarrassing for me - but he will be dealt with. Don't worry about that."

Ferguson had said to the press on Friday: "All the players are wearing it [the Kick It Out T-shirts]. I have only heard that Jason Roberts is different.

"I don't know what point he [Roberts] is trying to make."
