Athletic Bilbao coach Joaquin Caparros described the bottle-throwing incident that resulted in their Primera Liga match against Real Betis being abandoned as an "atrocity".

Saturday´s game at Betis´ Manuel Ruiz de Lopera stadium was halted with 18 minutes remaining after Athletic goalkeeper Armando Ribeiro was struck in the face by a bottle thrown from the stands behind the goal.

Armando, who was bleeding from a cut just below his right eye, was stretchered off the pitch and referee Carlos Clos Gomez subsequently took the teams off.
