Newcastle midfielder Isaac Hayden apologises for Cardiff red

Newcastle United midfielder Isaac Hayden apologised to fans after being sent off in their 0-0 draw at Cardiff City.

Hayden put in a rash challenge on Josh Murphy after coming on as sub for Javier Manquillo and he was shown a straight red card after being on the field for just 22 minutes.

After the 0-0 draw Hayden took to Twitter and posted: “Have to appologise to everyone for today, was a needless tackle and one that was stupid from me in that circumstance in the game.

“Will learn from it for sure and will be doing my upmost to repair my mistake today, for my teammates,manager and staff and fans in the future."

After the game manager Rafa Benitez was questioned about the “personal issues" and said: “It's difficult to say (if his personal issues affected him). It is not his position, but his tackle was unnecessary."
