THIS is the moment England star Ross Barkley squares up to bouncers as he's booted out of a bar for being drunk.
The Aston Villa playmaker – on loan from Chelsea – can barely stand in the shocking video.
Barkley, 27, who has 33 England caps, had been drinking heavily with a friend in The May Fair Hotel in central London on Thursday before he was thrown out at 8pm.
In the clip, filmed by an onlooker, the £100,000-a-week midfielder can be seen appearing to square up to a security guard.
He is also shown flailing his arms towards a customer’s face as he stumbled to the door.
One witness said the Premier League footballer was slurring his words and was struggling to stand up.
Once outside, Barkley appeared unable to stumble and had to be supported. As he leaned over his pink underwear was on display.
The embarrassing episode came in front of around 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***ed. 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's scenes came the day after Barkley was an unused substitute in Villa’s 2-1 win at Spurs.
The ex-Everton star signed for Chelsea for £15million in 2018 but failed to nail down a regular starting place.
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.
