The Aberdeen defender Colin Woodthorpe faces severe action from the Scottish Football Association after snatching a yellow card from a referee as he was about to be sent off.
Woodthorpe had already been booked by Martin Johnston during a reserve match against Dunfermline. When the referee produced the yellow card for a second time, the player grabbed it and threw it at the official.
Woodthorpe has since been fined by Aberdeen for his action and the SFA have confirmed that the referee's report has been received.Reuse content
