Dundee player sees red three times in one match
GLASGOW, Dec 16 (Reuters) - Dundee's Andy McLaren received three red cards on Saturday when his side lost 2-1 at Clyde in a Scottish second division match.
The former Dundee United, Kilmarnock and Reading forward was shown a red card for aiming a blow at Clyde's Eddie Malone on 87 minutes. He then struck Michael McGowan in the face as he left the pitch.
Referee Dougie McDonald was alerted to the second offence by an assistant, but McLaren had already raced up the tunnel. The match official called McLaren to his dressing room after the match to administer a second red card.
But McLaren then kicked the door of the official's room, leaving a small hole, and earned a third red. Clyde also had Neil McGregor sent off for two bookable offences committed within a minute in the second half.
