Paul Scholes v Liverpool

Paul Scholes wasn't exactly known as the best tackler during his career - but against Liverpool he earned one of the stranger red cards ever doled out, and it wasn't for a late challenge.

The Manchester United man was being held back by Liverpool's Xabi Alonso while trying to break forward.

His response? Aim a punch at his rival but unfortunately he missed entirely. He didn't have to hang around long before the red card was flourished.
