RAVEL MORRISON has revealed he once stole a Manchester United team-mate’s boots – but blasted his old club for his troubles, saying "they could have done more".
The new Ostersund star, 26, has hit out at his former team claiming they were not blameless in his decline from future star to journeyman.

Morrison also reiterated the fact he did not steal Rio Ferdinand's watch as was once claimed, but he did admit to lifting a team-mate's old boots.
Ferdinand had once suggested the mercurial star had nicked his expensive watch – but later rebutted his accusation.
And Morrison told The Times he would never have done such a thing, adding United were quick to pin the blame on him for anything and everything.
He revealed: "It was always ‘Ravel’s done this, Ravel’s done that'.

"The one thing I took was a pair of football boots that the player didn’t wear any more. But watches? Phones? That was ridiculous to say.”
Morrison went on to say he was forced away from the city, with the club believing it to be in his best interests – to stay out of trouble.
But Morrison claimed: “I didn’t need to get away from Manchester.
“There were times when I did something wrong, but often it was just wrong time, wrong place, wrong crowd and it wasn’t even me doing something.
