During a Champions League match against Malmo, Steven Whittaker, who plays for Rangers in the Scottish Premier League, decided to express his frustration with a chippy tackle by flinging the ball at his opponent.
In true soccer form, the opponent grabbed at his head in agony immediately after contact even though it appeared the ball hit his shoulder.
Interestingly, Whittaker told the Daily Mail, on the topic of Rangers fans not being to attend the game due to sanctions impose by UEFA, 'There won't be fans there but we will still be focused on trying to do the job at hand.'
I guess we can chalk up the red card received by Whittaker in the first 18 minutes of the match to a lack of "focus."
