Neville slams red-carded Man Utd midfielder Fellaini - ‘What is he doing?’

Gary Neville could not believe the antics of Marouane Fellaini tonight.

The Belgian midfielder was sent off in the 84th minute of the eventual 0-0 draw between Manchester United and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium for head butting Sergio Aguero.

Fellaini had been booked moments earlier before he and the Argentine striker came together, resulting in a straight red from referee Martin Atkinson.

"What is he doing? What is he doing? What is he doing?" Neville said on Sky Sports.

"Before that he's just taken the yellow card for stopping the counter attack.

"I think he's furious because what he's done is that he's given the foul away and there is an incident we haven't seen. He's snapped Fellaini, he needs to get off the pitch.

"Aguero's played him there like a fool. What is he doing? He's played him like a fool.

"I couldn't praise Marouane Fellaini enough for his performance on Sunday at Burnley and I think tonight he's done a good job for the team.

"He's now left his team with 10 minutes to go, maybe more, with a lot of work to do."
