The midfielder, 33, is now plying his trade at Torquay, after an unsuccessful spell at Dunfermline followed his exit from Roots Hall.

After captaining Paul Sturrock's men during the 2010/11 season, Easton admits he is still disappointed with how his time ended at the Essex club.

He told the Echo: "It was a debacle to be honest and I thought what they offered me to stay was embarrassing after what I'd given to the club while I was there.

"They gave me a contract which was 25 per cent less than what I was previously on and there was no room for negotiation either.

"That's football though and I've moved on since then and I'm looking to do well for Torquay."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
