Ayr Striker Craig Moore Sent Off For Kicking Opponent In The Balls
Scottish football never fails to disappoint and we got another incredible incident in the gripping 0-0 draw between Ayr and Greenock Morton in the Scottish Championship yesterday.
Ayr striker Craig Moore was given his marching orders in the 62nd after kicking Gregor Buchanan right in the bollocks. After bundling Moore over, Buchanan kicked through him to get the ball and the former Motherwell man reacted angrily.
He did his best to make it look discrete but Moore flicked his leg right back into Buchanan's crown jewels. In a matter of seconds, the referee brandished the red card and sent Moore back to the changing rooms for an early bath.
It was a moment of madness from Moore but he knew how stupid he had been as he strolled off the pitch. He now looks set to miss Ayr's next three games as part of his suspension for being shown a red card for violent conduct.

The 30-year old, who made eight appearances for Celtic, has had five run ins with the law in eight years - including attacking two police officers and a community support constable years apart.
His latest conviction was for spitting at a bouncer outside a nightclub in Dundee following the club's end of season awards in May.
McGowan was again spared jail but given 200 hours of unpaid community service, forced to pay his victim £200 as compensation and being placed under supervision for a year.
