Flores appeared to suggest he had been hit by Steven Nzonzi with replays suggesting that there was minimal contact from the Potters midfielder.

Walters reckons the Spanish defender was trying to get Nzonzi sent off and should be reprimanded for his conduct.

"For someone to fall over clutching their face when he hasn't been touched, trying to con the referee, should be banned," he told The Sentinel.

"The powers that be should look at that. It's the same as a dive. They need to look at it because it's disgraceful."

Walters scored during Sunday's entertaining game and says Swansea were fortunate to finish the match with 11 men.

"In my eyes, he should get sent off himself for that," he said.

"Nzonzi did not touch him, so for him to react like that, to try to get another professional sent off, there has got to be really strong action."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them.

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
