Diouf potentially facing jail

Rovers midfielder/striker/free kick winner El Hadji Diouf has been informed that he could face jail for up to TWO YEARS if he is convicted of assaulting a woman in a Senegalese Casino.

Diouf is no stranger to trouble which everyone is probably aware of.

He was given a suspended jail term for assaulting an team mate's ex-wife and also charged with spitting at a Celtic fan a few years back when playing for Liverpool.

But this latest misdemeanour could be the ice breaker as Diouf has been charged with assaulting a woman along with his security crew at 6am... he was charged last week whilst on a visit to Senegal to help the Haitian Earthquake Cause.

If convicted the punishment could be either a fine and/or (more likely given his history) a jail sentence of between three months and two years.

If only there was a picture I could use of me slapping my head with my hand. Idiot.

If he gets jail - I would hope the board would sack him with immediate effect.

A typical case of footballing power and publicity going to his head?? Or do we think this (the way he is) would be how he was without the countless millions he has??
