FOOTIE hardman Duncan Ferguson has opened up on the angriest he has ever been.

During his playing days, Ferguson was known as a no-nonsense personality who would never shirk away from a challenge.

The Everton legend recently picked up the challenge of League One side Forest Green Rovers last week, with the green-fingered club currently sitting firmly at the bottom of the table.

"So about three or four months later I've gone round to the lad and asked him have you got my pigeon, he'd pulled the head off it.
