Former world champion Murphy lit the blue touchpaper at this week’s UK Championship after bombing out in the first round to teenage amateur Si Jiahui.

After that world No6 Murphy, 39, launched into an angry rant saying those who did not have pro status should not be allowed to compete in the big events.

Although some top players agree with Murphy, he has been slammed by both governing body World Snooker Tour, president Barry Hearn and the sporting public.
