Premier League Star Uses £20 Notes As Toilet Paper To Clean His A**
The West Bromwich defender has been remorseful after the embarrassing picture emerged of him wiping his backside with a wad of £20s.
But it would seem his team-mates have seized upon this as a perfect opportunity to wind-up one of their fellow players.
The former Aston Villa and Birmingham defender was forced to apologise after the picture was leaked at the weekend.
He claimed the shot was taken to wind up a friend after he won a bet and he never intended for it to enter the public domain.
Ridgewell told The Sun: 'The photo was taken in the privacy of my home around eight months ago as a joke to wind up a mate, who I had just won a personal bet with.
'I only intended him to see the photo but now it's public, I can understand how it will be viewed. I am sorry for any offence it causes.'
The picture caused anger as Ridgwell earns in a week what the denizens of the West Midlands earn - on average - in a year.
The club distanced themselves from the issue saying it was a private matter.
'This is a private issue for Liam that has become public', a Baggies statement said.
'It does not put the club in a good light and we will deal with the matter internally. Since Liam joined us 11 months ago, his conduct on club duty has been exemplary.'
