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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
