COLLINGWOOD coach Mick Malthouse is facing an AFL investigation over claims he called St Kilda footballer Stephen Milne a ''f---ing rapist''.
Milne, along with teammate Leigh Montagna, was the subject of a 2004 investigation of sexual assault against two women.
At least two Saints players say they heard Malthouse's alleged comment and were last night prepared to give evidence against him.
