Manchester United starlet Sean McGinty will face the wrath of Sir Alex Ferguson after having his loan spell at Tranmere Rovers ended for disciplinary reasons.
The Ireland U21 defender made the move to Prenton Park last month in a bid to secure first team football, but has seen the arrangement terminated after just three games at the club, in a revelation by Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore, the Irish Examiner reported.
McGinty, who joined Manchester United in 2009, was dropped for Tranmere's League One defeat to Hartlepool at the weekend, and will now return to his parent club where he is likely to be grilled by Ferguson. The 19-year-old defender recently revealed that he had signed a one year contract extension at the club following additional loan spells in the lower leagues, but may find his future at the club in jeopardy following his latest indiscretion.
The former Charlton Athletic academy player found himself in trouble for his off pitch antics last year, when he was banned from the roads after being caught drink-driving in Manchester city centre. McGinty was handed an 18-month driving ban after he was spotted driving the wrong way down a one way street while double the legal drink-drive limit.
The teenager has yet to make a first team appearance for the Premier League leaders, having progressed through Ireland's youth ranks since his arrival at the club, appearing at U17, U19 and U21 level.
Tranmere's decision to terminate the teenager's loan is the latest in a series of unsuccessful loan spells where United have attempted to secure first team football for the defender. McGinty failed to make an appearance for Oxford United at the beginning of the campaign, and played just once in another loan spell at Carlisle United during a month-long spell last December.
