Video – Brighton’s Ashley Barnes sent off for tripping up referee

Posted by - March 12, 2013 - Bolton Wanderers, Championship

We’ve all thought it at one point or another, but for most of us clipping the referee’s heels as he runs away remained firmly in our minds.

Not for Brighton’s Ashley Barnes, however, who earned himself a red card during his side’s match against Bolton at the Reebok Stadium for doing exactly that on referee Nigel Miller.

The crazy thing is that Barnes then claims his innocence whilst the home crowd cheer him receive his marching orders.

Stupid, stupid boy!
