Adama Lallana was sent off in the Liverpool Under-23s game against Tottenham on Monday, but will escape any first-team punishment, according to a report.
However, Liverpool fans are not amused by his on-pitch reaction and feel he’s lucky to avoid more serious punishment.
Lallana reacted badly to an aerial challenge with Spurs player George Marsh and was shown a straight red card after grabbing the young midfielder round the neck.
Sky Sports has reported that the player will not receive a first-team ban as any punishment will be confined to the Under-23s competition.
Lallana is still on the comeback trail after spending the majority of this season out with a hamstring injury.
And while he won’t face a first-team ban, not being able to play for the Under-23s could hamper his recovery as he looks to regain match fitness.
Irrespective, Liverpool fans are not impressed with his behaviour, with one saying that he should have been setting an example to the younger players that were looking up to him.
Here is a selection of the best reactions from Liverpool fans:
