Wales and Arsenal midfielder, Aaron Ramsey, told reporters that he has apologised to the team for getting sent off during their 2-1 victory over Scotland in their World Cup qualifier on Friday night.

The midfielder was shown a straight red in injury time after fouling James McArthur with a rash tackle after he gave away the ball cheaply from a free kick.

Ramsey will now miss the side's qualifier against Croatia and he has admitted that he needs to learn from this experience and that he has apologised to the team and manager, Chris Coleman.

Ramsey had earlier scored in the game as Wales came from 1-0 down to beat Scotland 2-1 thanks to goals from himself, from the penalty spot, and also Reading player, Hal Robson-Kanu.

Wales star-man, Gareth Bale was forced off at half-time with an injury and Arsenal midfielder, Ramsey believes their second half performance without the Tottenham winger proved that the side aren't reliable on Bale and aren't just a one-man side.

"It was very disappointing - it's something I need to learn from," said Ramsey.

"I should have looked up at the clock and let the goalkeeper take the free-kick. I had to (foul McArthur) in the end.

"It's disappointing to do what I've done after a great performance.

"I said sorry (to the manager) for letting the boys down. I'm missing the next game so I apologised.

"We have some very good players who can do things, great things, and are comfortable on the ball. We proved that in the second half.

"Gareth Bale can do something out of the ordinary and that is what teams are wary of. But we showed we have a lot more to offer than just him."
