Brisbane Roar's Ross Aloisi and Craig Moore cited by FFA

Brisbane Roar assistant coach Ross Aloisi has been cited and is facing punishment for allegedly assaulting Adelaide United assistant coach Jacobo Ramallo.

Aloisi is accused of striking Ramallo in the back while in the tunnel exiting Coopers Stadium after the Roar's last-gasp loss in Adelaide.

The incident happened minutes after Brisbane conceded a controversial penalty and lost the game 2-1.

Roar football director Craig Moore was also cited under Football Federation Australia's national code of conduct on Monday over alleged comments made towards referee Steven Lucas after the match.

The pair have until 5 p.m. (AEDT) on Wednesday to make submissions, and face anything from a reprimand to a fine and/or suspension.

Meanwhile, Brisbane goalkeeper Michael Theo was handed a two-match ban after the panel ruled he committed "assault on a player."

Theo was red-carded for elbowing Adelaide's Dylan McGowan in the 96th minute of the match, leading to Sergio Cirio's penalty that sparked the heated postmatch row.

He has until midday on Tuesday to appeal.

Ross Aloisi
Ross Aloisi of Brisbane RoarĀ is alleged to have struck Adelaide United assistant coach Jacobo Ramallo.

It came after Adelaide defender Dylan McGowan called for Aloisi to face repercussions if found guilty, though he stressed he didn't see the incident or personally know who was involved.

"We are trying to market the game here in Australia and all these sort of incidents bring negative light to the game which is unfortunate," McGowan said on Monday.

"I don't know who was involved so I can't be saying that they [FFA] need to come down on whatever it is.

"I'm sure that they're looking into it. And, to be honest, the Adelaide tunnel has got plenty of people in it so someone has seen it.

"And there will be hopefully repercussions if there was something done wrong. Hopefully there's repercussions for it because it was something we don't want to see in the game."

The Roar reiterated they will cooperate with FFA but refused to comment further.
