Own Goal: Former Manchester City footballer Dietmar Hamann has been banned from driving after being found guilty of drink-driving. Hamann was stopped by police on the M56 near his home in Styal, Cheshire, in July last year. His Range Rover was seen 'weaving' on the motorway and clipped a kerb three times, Trafford magistrates' court heard. His car also lunged forwards when he stopped abruptly at a red light, a policeman told the court. The ex-footballer, who was released by Man City at the end of last season, was charged with drink-driving after positive breath and urine samples. The lawyer representing the German midfielder and argued the urine specimen was unreliable because Hamann was not allowed to empty his bladder before giving a second sample but Judge Hadfield ruled that a ten minute gap between the samples proved they were separate. Hamann was found guilty after the trial and banned from driving for 16 months, increased from 12 months because he did not plead guilty. He also has 28 days to pay almost £2000 in costs.
Foul: Glasgow Rangers striker Kyle Lafferty's Bentley was vandalised as it was parked in the street only four months after the Bentley and a Range Rover were vandalised when they were parked outside his home. Lafferty has not been available for comment. In 2008, vandals scrawled graffiti on goalkeeper Allan McGregor's Bentley and his girlfriend Leah Shevlin's Range Rover outside their home in Glasgow. ?
