Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho denies telling Sergio Ramos to get deliberately booked during their 3-0 Champions League win over Galatasaray.

Mourinho denied that he told Ramos to deliberately pick up a late booking which, although ruling him out of the second leg, means he has a clean slate ahead of a prospective semi-final double-header.

"I lost Xabi Alonso and I was thinking about playing Pepe in midfield in Istanbul and his yellow card leaves me with a problem to resolve," he insisted.
