Mason Greenwood was given his marching orders on Tuesday evening after reacting furiously during Getafe’s LaLiga clash with Rayo Vallecano. 

Greenwood’s side were already 2-0 down after the break and already down to 10 men following an earlier double yellow, but suffered another blow after he was sent off for dissent on 50 minutes.

The forward has spent the season on loan from Manchester United after joining on transfer deadline day from the Premier League giants. 

During the game, with the hosts in dire need of a goal to get back in the tie, Greenwood picked up the ball at around the halfway line before dribbling through three Rayo Vallecano players. 

After a one-two with his team-mate, Greenwood then breaks toward the visitors’ goal, but is plagued by two defenders nipping at his heels.

The English loanee is then at last stopped, but when no foul is called, he turns furiously in the direction of the referee and appears to gesture that there were a number of perceived infringements in the phase of play. 

He then gestures with his hand and appears to shout something in the direction of the match official. 

Greenwood walks away, but the referee then puts his hand in his back pocket and brings out the red card, compounding Getafe’s misery after just 50 minutes. 

To make things worse, Damian Suarez was shown a red from the bench after having been substituted for Omar Alderete with the hosts racking up an incredible three red cards in the game.
