( AFP ) - Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has warned that he will not hesitate to sell any player who breaches club discipline.
Ferguson has taken a hard line with his players throughout his career and has not been afraid to sell some of the club's biggest stars.
And his latest warning comes after the club's Christmas party ended in rape claims.
The United boss has reportedly fined the players involved in the party a total of one million pounds (1.9 million dollars) - the biggest penalty ever dished out by a Premiership team for a breach of disicipine.
And he has also banned any more parties and told his millionaire players there will never be a repeat performance.
The Scot said: "Football has changed but you cannot lose your control. That is why we make changes here at Manchester United when we see anyone interfering with this sense of control.
"When we see this, then it's time for them to go because this club is based on everyone being together.
"When we start going off at tangents you have to assess it - definitely."
Ferguson also expressed his dislike of the celebrity lifestyle now enjoyed by many high-profile players.
"What annoys me about some players today is this personal glory thing," he said. "They score a goal and then knock players out of the road so they can have their own private, personal gratification and praise from the fans. It's ugly seeing these kind of celebrations.
"These present-day footballers need to be noticed, with their earrings and tattoos. They no longer go to the small Italian restaurants but to the big and bright places."
