Gordon in the morning: They left without escort

Felix Allen files for the News International shadow state this morning with a story about the football:

ROWDY Liam Gallagher got a rollocking from Spanish cops last night as he watched his beloved Manchester City lose 3-2 to Real Madrid.
From cops? Plural? A rollicking?
City were 2-1 up with minutes to go when a cop grabbed Liam’s arm as he stood up and got “vocal”.
One cop. A gentle touch. It's not exactly a call for water cannon and back-up, is it?

The story concludes:
His spokesman said: “They left without escort.”
Which is either a brilliant deadpan response, or the long sigh of a spokesperson fighting off a desperate bid to turn a nothing into a something.
