Trabzonspor player shows referee the red card - and gets sent off himself

FOOTBALL By Mirror | February 22nd 2016


Trabzonspor's Salih Dursin was let out his frustration at the referee in a rather unique way, earning his team a fourth red card of a remarkable match

Trabzonspor player Salih Dursin was sent off for showing the referee the red card - just seconds after his team-mate was binned.

Furious Dursin let out his anger towards the official with a bizarre show of dissent after Luis Cavanda was given his marching orders, leaving Trabzonspor with just eight men on the field.

And eight soon became seven as the referee Deniz Bitnel took exception to his actions.

Following Cavanda's red card, Trabzonspor's players surrounded the referee, causing him to drop his card on the floor.

Dursin was quickest to the card and flashed it in the face of Bitnel before the official snatched it back and returned the favour.

Earlier in the match, midfielder Ozer Hurmaci and defender Aykut Demir were both dismissed for second bookable offences.

Despite receiving an unprecedented four red cards, Galatasaray required a last minute penalty to secure the victory against their mid-table opposition.

Selcuk Inan'sspot kick secured the dramatic 2-1 victory.

It is not the first time this season that Trabzonspor has been embroiled in referee-related drama.

In October, club president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu locked four officials in their stadium following a draw with Gaziantepspor.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip was forced to intervene at the referees were released after four hours
