Bizarre! Player Banned For Kicking Referee’s Door

Scottish defender Richard Foster has bizarrely been banned for two games after kicking a referee’s door during his St Johnstone team’s 3-2 defeat to Dundee on September 19.

The 32-year old was found guilty of “excessive misconduct” by the Scottish Football Association.

Centre referee Alan Muir had earlier penalised Foster for his foul on A-Jay Leitch-Smith in the box paving the way for Sofien Moussa to score the winning goal from the spot. He thereafter vented his anger at the decision by kicking the referee’s door.

He will now miss the league games against Rangers at home on October 21 and the trip to Hearts on October 21.

Richard Foster is not new to being on the wrong side of the law after he served a two-match ban and was fined by St Johnstone last season for an altercation with a team-mate, Danny Swanson, during a match against Hamilton Academical.
