The Torygraph:

Manchester United's players are refusing to give television interviews for one week in protest at the repeated showing of Gary Neville's controversial goal celebrations during the 1-0 Premiership win over Liverpool.

The boycott started following Sunday's 3-0 FA Cup fourth-round victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers when Neville, the United captain, and his team-mates refused to face the cameras.

The boycott also means that no United players were available yesterday to comment on the FA Cup fifth-round draw which sent United to Anfield in a tie which could further inflame relations between the two clubs.
