BOOZED-UP England star Ross Barkley was booted out of a posh bar after rowing with diners and staff.
The Aston Villa midfielder — on loan from Chelsea — was slurring and could barely stand, one witness said.
Barkley, 27, had been drinking heavily with a pal in The May Fair Hotel in central London before being shown the red card at 8pm. He flailed his arms towards a customer’s face as he stumbled to the door and squared up to a member of the five-star hotel’s security team.
Barkley — on £100,000 a week — briefly left with this friend before they careered back towards their table. They were confronted by security and told again to leave.
Once outside, Barkley appeared unable to stand and had to be supported. As he leaned over his bright pink underwear was on display.
The embarrassing episode came in front of about 100 people at the hotel’s May Fair Kitchen, which sells Dom Perignon Brut Rose Vintage for £475 and a Chateau Lefite Rothschild for £1,600.
A source told The Sun: “Ross Barkley was wasted. I first spotted him arguing with someone before it really kicked off. Ross was politely told to leave. But they came back, stumbling around packed tables and really slurring.
“Then the security staff spotted him and they were escorted into the main foyer.
“It got heated. They were arguing. It almost got physical, with the bouncer just pushing them out of the way.
Some taxis then refused to take him because he was so p*. It was embarrassing.
“It was shocking that a professional sportsman and England star could behave in this way in public. Young fans look up to players like him, and it’s really not on to behave in such a disgraceful way.”
Thursday evening’s scenes came the day after he was an unused substitute in Villa’s 2-1 win at Spurs. The ex-Everton star, who signed for the Blues for £15million in 2018, has 33 England caps.
Pals of the star said he is ineligible to play in Sunday's last game of the season due to the conditions of his loan deal agreed by Villa and Chelsea.
Last night Barkley's spokesman did not comment.
