Melbourne:

Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds is reported to have courted trouble yet again. According to a media report Symonds was shown the door at a Brisbane bar on Sunday night after he accidentally "broke a glass and was stumbling and calling out boisterously to his friends."

"It's understood Symonds was drinking on the weekend to celebrate the end of the Sheffield Shield season and was asked to leave the Watt Bar at New Farm," a newspaper report said. Symonds and his friends were shown the door of the bar after the incident.

Recently he was fined $4000 for calling New Zealand wicketkeeper Brendon McCullum a "lump of ****" in a radio interview under the influence of alcohol.

The flamboyant player has been undergoing a second period of counselling and rehabilitation after returning to the game last month following knee surgery at the start of the year. The 33-year-old was ordered to undergo counselling after the "gone fishing" affair in late August but was recalled to the Test team in November.

A Queensland Cricket spokesman said Symonds' rehabilitation was on and he was not banned from drinking. "He's allowed to have a drink and I'm sure the boys were looking after him," the spokesman said.
