Ramos sent off in second league appearance for PSG

Sergio Ramos is no stranger to an early bath - he holds the record for the most red cards in LaLiga history - he was sent off in PSG's 1-1 draw with Lorient.

Ramos sent off in second league appearance for PSG

When it comes to taking an early bath, there are few players up there with Sergio Ramos. The Spanish defender has the dubious honour of being the player to have been sent off the most times in LaLiga history. During his 19 seasons in the Spanish top flight, Ramos was given his marching orders 26 times - more than the previous record holder, his old team mate at Sevilla, Pablo Alfaro, who was sent off 18 times during his playing career.

Ramos' annus horribilis

This evening, Ramos almost made it to the end of the Ligue 1 meeting at Lorient. He'd only been on the pitch for the second half after replacing Nuno Mendes at half-time. He received his first booking on 81 minutes then was sent off five minutes later for another yellow card offence, obstruction - bodychecking Terem Moffi.

His time at PSG isn't quite turning out as he would have hoped - injuries have kept him out of the side until quite recently and tonight's game at Lorient was just his second league appearance for the club (his third in total since joining, including a 45-minute cameo against SC Feignies in the Coupe de France). Now, even if he is fully fit, he is certain to miss the next Ligue 1 game, against Olympique Lyon on 9 January
