Ridiculous retaliation red card

When PAOK’s Sergio Conceicao went to take a corner against Aris he found himself pelted with a barrage of missiles. The Portuguese took a token sample of the debris and threw it at the perspex screen guarding the Aris faithful. For this heinous crime he was sent-off. And then all hell broke loose.

    Terrific piece of work in finding the clip.
    Without a doubt a most incredible decision to send the guy off.
    Would love to know what a British referee would have done in that situation.
    In my opinion ALL the players should have been made to leave the field until the crowd calmed down & Aris should be fined heavily or even have points deducted!

    I don’t condone his retaliation, but footballers shouldn’t have to put up with that from ‘fans’. The pitch was a disgrace and possibly some action should have been taken earlier to protect the players.
