Way back in September Bobby Duncan signed for Fiorentina for £1.8m. The young striker was involved in a very public clash between Liverpool and his agent, Saif Rubie.

The player’s representative baselessly accused Liverpool of “mentally bullying and destroying the life” of Bobby Duncan. It was utterly incredible.

The fallout was spectacular, Kopites from around the world piled in on Saif Rubie, letting him know exactly how they felt about his comments.

Reds fans hated Rubie not just because he was insulting the club but because he was blatantly exploiting a young man to satisfy his own greed and vanity. His comments trivialised mental health issues and were utterly abhorrent, the manner in which he conducted himself will not be forgotten for some time – there were comparisons drawn to the agent of Raheem Sterling.

Respected Liverpool journalist James Pearce today confirmed that Saif Rubie has been banned by the FA for six weeks and fined £10,000 for his Twitter tirade. Kopites have been celebrating the verdict.

This Red was over the moon to see the man punished.

One supporter pointed out that the move didn’t even work out as intended.

This fan believes that Saif Rubie is emblematic of a much larger problem.

One Kopite channeled his inner Omar from The Wire. Loving the reference.

Whilst another called on Baby Yoda. You really shouldn’t mess with the global force of Liverpool fans.

But of course, it is important to remember that Saif Rubie let down Bobby Duncan by acting entirely in his own interest.
