Bad behaviour on the touchline

Auxerre sub Jean-Pascal Mignot picked up a Champions League red card last night despite not playing in his side’s defeat to Ajax. Mignot was warming up on the touchline in the closing minutes (a pretty pointless task, but that’s besides the point) with Auxerre trailing 2-1 when he told the referee to hurry up.

The official was not impressed with Mignot’s pitchside refereeing and showed him a yellow card. When Mignot offered further words of advice, the ref produced the red card.
