Football's craziest red cards (1)

Published 9 Comments

Javier Mascherano was forced to offer a humbling apology today after being sent off in the most bizarre circumstances imaginable while on international duty with Argentina last night.

In the final minutes of his side's 1-1 draw with Ecuador the Barcelona ace began to kick the driver of the medical kart which was stretchering him off the pitch.

Mascherano apologised and says he only did it because the driver was going to fast and he was close to falling off. Sound bizarre? Well that's because it was.

With that in mind there is no better time than to look back at some of the craziest/most bizarre red cards of all time.
