West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson admits he deserved his red in defeat to Manchester United.

The disappointed centre-half received his marching orders from referee Lee Probert on 66 minutes after two yellows in 17 minutes, with the Baggies a goal down.

"The second booking was a stupid challenge from me and I should know better," Olsson told the WBA website.

"I thought maybe the first yellow was a bit hard.

"But I think I'm experienced enough to think about my decision-making with the second challenge.

"I'm very disappointed with that on a personal level and disappointed that we lost the game after such a good run lately.

"If you look at the game United were the better team and they deserved to win."
