Real Madrid defender Ramos stung by 5-match ban

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has been slapped with a five-match ban for his dismissal and reaction against Celta Vigo. The Spain international was given his marching orders in the 72nd minute of the Copa win after picking up a second yellow card before venting his feelings at the match officials as he left the pitch.

The Spanish Football Federation announced on Thursday that Ramos had been given a one-match ban for his dismissal and a further four-match suspension due to article 94 of the RFEF's disciplinary code, which relates to "insults, verbal offences and abusive attitudes" towards officials.
