Tottenham are to appeal Robbie Keane´s red card in Sunday´s 3-2 defeat by Birmingham amid confusion over the process that led to the dismissal.

Referee Phil Dowd gave Keane his marching orders for a clumsy lunge at Fabrice Muamba after initially appearing to consult the fourth official and linesman, but Spurs will seek to have the dismissal overturned and while Ramos is unsure on how Dowd arrived at his decision, he insists Keane should never have seen red.

He said: "The sending-off was harsh. In this type of incident the referee would normally show a yellow card, it certainly wasn´t red. The referee was very close by. It was very unfair."
