Dougie Freedman, a surprising absentee from the team to play Preston on Saturday was allegedly involved in a training ground row with manager Trevor Francis on Friday morning. A source confirmed that the two argued over Freedman's role in the side, and the result was that Freedman was left out of the team, and told that he would not play again this season. On Sunday, the News of the World reported that Clinton Morrison and Francis had also had heated arguments and, the paper said that Morrison would quit the Club in the summer due to the rows with Francis.
