RANGERS star Kemar Roofe was sent off after leaving Slavia Praguekeeper Ondrej Kolar bloodied with a flying high boot to the face.
The Light Blues striker was brought on to replace Scott Arfield in the 55th minute at Ibrox – but saw red just six minutes later after an ugly mid-air collision.
Replays showed that the Rangers star had his eye on the ball and that it was a a purely accidental challenge.
However, he was ultimately sent off for endangering an opponent – and Kolar being carried off on a stretcher with a bandaged forehead.
Slavia were forced to replace the goalie with 18-year-old keeper Matyas Vagner.
Speaking on the BBC's Sportsound show, ex-Rangers player Charlie Adam said of the challenge: "That is indefensible.
"If Roofe goes with his head, he's got more chance of the goalkeeper taking him out and winning a penalty."
Rangers hero Peter Lovenkrands added: "Roofe can easily kick that ball and bring his foot down.
"To me, I think he can get his foot out of the way of the goalkeepers head. It's a definite red card."
