Sergio Ramos: Sent off against Celta Vigo

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has been handed a five-match ban for his sending off and subsequent reaction in Wednesday night's Copa del Rey victory over Celta Vigo.

The Spain international was given his marching orders in the 72nd minute of the fixture after picking up a second yellow card before venting his feelings at the match officials as he left the pitch.

The Spanish Football Federation announced on Thursday that Ramos had been given a one-match ban for his dismissal and a further four-match suspension due to article 94 of the RFEF's disciplinary code, which relates to "insults, verbal offences and abusive attitudes" towards officials.

Madrid won the match 4-0 to progress through to the quarter-finals 5-2 on aggregate.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
