Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina deserved his straight red.

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew says Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina deserved his straight red.

Pardew felt Reina could have no complaints with the red card he received late on for a headbutt on Newcastle defender James Perch.

"I thought he was frustrated and he has done something you can't do as a professional footballer and put his head in our players' face. He is going to get sent off."
