WELSH central defender Steve O'Shaughnessy has fallen foul of big spending Hong Kong club Rangers over an alleged incident which has been reported to the Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) by both parties. Rangers manager Philip Lee Fai-lap and Wrexham-born O'Shaughnessy had a heated argument at training last Saturday in which both player and manager had to be restrained by teammates after the quarrel threatened to get out of hand. Lee sent a letter to HKFA chief executive officer Vincent Yuen claiming there was a serious breach of conduct by O'Shaughnessy. The former Welsh youth player maintains his innocence. The incident was sparked after O'Shaughnessy became upset when Rangers' chairman Lam Tai-fai failed to turn up for a meeting to clear O'Shaughnessy's future with the club. O'Shaughnessy has been signed by the club since July on a temporary contract which had been extended twice. Lee alleged O'Shaughnessy went into a fit of rage and cursed Lam, who was not present, using foul language. O'Shaughnessy admitted he swore but claimed he did not use physical force and in turn claimed Lee had lost his temper and tried to punch him. After the incident, the club's management refused to renew the player's contract which expired on December 7. The player went to the HKFA yesterday to seek advice. 'My three-month contract actually ended on November 30 but the management wanted me to play in the league game against Golden on December 5, so I signed an extra one-week contract,' O'Shaughnessy said. 'When this contract ended on December 7, I asked the management whether they still wanted me or not and the chairman, Lam Tai-fai, promised to meet me at the HKSI on Saturday.' O'Shaughnessy claimed the club still owed him a week's salary, some bonus money and an air ticket back to England. Yuen advised O'Shaughnessy to make a written report to the HKFA but hinted no action would be taken by the HKFA unless both parties failed to come to a mutual agreement. Lam said yesterday his club would pay O'Shaughnessy's air ticket and salary after an investigation into the incident. O'Shaughnessy said he would report the case to the English Professional Footballers Association. The English FA have already received complaints from former Rangers' players Gary Bannister, Mark Blake and Mark Walton.
