Former deputy chief executive McGuire left the players' union last week amid reports of a breakdown in relations with chief executive Gordon Taylor.

However, the PFA has now moved to clarify the situation.

In a statement, Taylor said: “On Wednesday 11th March after serious allegations of bullying, which I found to be substantiated, I regrettably had no alternative but to summarily dismiss Mick McGuire for gross professional misconduct.

“As a trade union the PFA, and I as its chief executive officer, cannot condone bullying, nor allow it to continue.”

When contacted for his response, McGuire did not wish to comment.
