Red cards from A-League grand final rescinded

The red cards given to Cristiano and Danny Allsopp have both been overturned by Football Federation Australia. Both players were sent off in controversial circumstances min Saturday night's decider won by the Victory.

FFA have decided that both dismissals be removed from the players records and no further sanctions be applied.

A statement from the FFA read, "Adelaide United player, Cristiano, was issued with an R2 Red Card for "violent conduct". The MRP firstly considered a challenge to the Red Card by the player. The challenge was upheld and, accordingly, the Red Card is expunged from the record of the player and he is not required to serve a sanction.
