Plymouth's Walton transfer-listed

Plymouth's Walton transfer-listed

After being sent off at Oakwell on Saturday, Plymouth's Simon Walton has been transfer listed by Pilgrims boss, Paul Sturrock.

The 21-year-old record summer signing kicked out at Anderson de Silva after losing out in tackle.

Paul Sturrock explained his decision to Plymouth's official website:

'I have had a discussion with Simon today and I have made it very plain to him how disappointed I was about the whole scenario.

'I had emphasized it to him, after watching video evidence from the last couple of games where there were incidents that could have turned into what happened on Saturday.

'He took no heed of that and, after careful consideration, I have decided to put him on the transfer list, and I have fined him two weeks' wages.

'The reason why this has been brought to a head today is the pre-warning I gave him over the last couple of games.

'He has taken no heed of it and that I can't legislate for, I can't tolerate or accept.

'There were several incidences in several games where he has been very close to tempting the referee.

'After taking time to show him bits and pieces, and reiterate my thoughts on it, for it not to happen, I cannot accept.

'He has let all the players down, which is more important than anything else and I feel this is an appropriate course of action.

'The rest of it is internal as far as I'm concerned.'

don't you mean 'tiger woods', Tiny T? and there're a few rumours about us being interested in him, not sure we need a player in his position, though.
