Paulo Sousa was unhappy to be sent to the stands following an incident involving Samuel Di Carmine.

Rangers were held to a goalless draw by Crystal Palace this afternoon (Saturday), but the incident that saw Paulo Sousa sent to the stands will undoubtedly take the headlines in a drab affair in W12.

On the stroke of half time Claude Davis, who has previously gone unpunished for a flailing elbow, stuck his boot into Samuel Di Carmine`s face in what was a dangerous tackle in front of the South Africa Road Stand.

Sousa leapt to the defence of his striker and was sent of for his remonstrations. He believed that he had to step in before the situation escalated.

'It was becoming dangerous with Sami,' Sousa told QPR.co.uk

'There were some really bad challenges on Sami. One was with the players arm, another with a high foot - it's difficult to control your emotions, because I care about my players.

'Sami had blood streaming from his nose, it was a poor challenge.

'I was unhappy and surprised to be sent to the stands. I'm an emotional person, an emotional coach - I was just trying to care for my player.'


From the stands Sousa saw the R`s lay siege to Julián Speroni`s goal to no avail as the hosts lack the necessary killer instinct.

Sousa thought that his side had a good shout for a penalty in the final minute of the game as Rowan Vine`s cross appeared to be handled.

He said: 'I think the referee missed a clear penalty for us.

'It was a handball, but today it was not given, which is disappointing."


Rangers now face the unenviable trip to Turf Moor to face Burnley for the fourth time this season - and they will be hoping to exact revenge for their cup exit in Lancashire earlier this season.

I thought no matter how much you care, he was very unprofessional and I for one was not surprised that the ref sent him off. He basically had hold of him!

I know what you're saying, Boxer, but he was apparently sent off for being out of his technical area - if that is so, why weren't all the Liverpool officials, who ran out of their technical area at Fulham this evening, after LFC scored, "sent off"? Under the circumstances of Di Carmine's injuries - 2nd in the first half - I think the ref should have used his common sense & told Sousa to go into the dressing room & calm down - and if he persisted in his behaviour then, fair play, send the fella off. I've seen that Warnock's gonna speak out in favour of Sousa - Warnock was in a perfect position - which I hope he manages to do. It's about time we saw some passion at Loftus Road - from the management or players!!

Warnock was classy today I thought - it would have been easy to stir it but he stood back and belied his reputation. Well done Mr Warnock.

Missed most of this. Was at the game, but I wear reading glasses. OK I can see stuff four feet in front of me, but am absolutely knackered when it comes to viewing what in Hell's name is going on in front of the SAR stand as I sit in the ER stand. Must admit, I didn't even know PS was sent upstairs until I got home!

Sitting in the upper loft (JU) I got a prime view side on - and Sousa waded through the fourth official and a crowd of players, got onto the pitch and was flapping his arms about at the ref - five minutes later the ref was speaking to him for what seemed like an age and he was sent to the stands - he was sat up in the right hand side of the C-Club as you would look at it.
