Leicester City played their first match this afternoon since the tragic passing of Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, with Demarai Gray paying tribute to the club’s owner – only to be swiftly shown a yellow card.
The Foxes are in Premier League action at Cardiff City after deciding to postpone Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup tie against Southampton at the King Power Stadium.
It’s the first time since last Saturday’s helicopter crash that Leicester’s stars have had the opportunity to pay tribute to Srivaddhanaprabha, and when they took the lead in the second half through Demarai Gray they did exactly that.
The winger whipped off his match jersey to reveal a message of support – but referee Lee Probert took a dim view of the celebration and decided to caution Gray.
We understand rules are rules, and removing your shirt is a yellow card offence, but surely there are extenuating circumstances when you can let these things slide?
What do you think?
