Liverpool's Shelvey apologises for red card
The midfielder apologised for the tackle.
"I apologise to the fans for getting sent off but no way was I pulling out of that tackle in a game of that importance. I'm sorry," he wrote on Twitter.
Ferguson was bemused by the 20-year-old's reaction.
"He blamed me! But he is young and he will realise the stupidity of it," said the Scot.
