Newcastle fail in Remy red card appeal

Loic Remy will miss the Tyne Wear derby after Newcastle's appeal over the red card the French striker was shown at Norwich was rejected by the Football Association.

Loic Remy and Bradley Johnson were both sent off for an altercation as Norwich and Newcastle shared the spoils.
Remy and Johnson tussle at Carrow Road.

Remy tussled with Norwich's Bradley Johnson towards the end of the 0-0 draw at Carrow Road on Tuesday. The pair put their heads together, Johnson appearing to motion his head backwards as if he had been headbutted.

Referee Chris Foy dismissed Remy after consultation with his assistant referee and then, following a brief pause, produced a red card for Johnson too.

Both clubs appealed but only Johnson was successful, meaning Remy will now serve a three match ban and will miss Newcastle's derby clash with Sunderland, as well as the games against Chelsea and Tottenham.

An FA statement read: "An Independent Regulatory Commission heard two claims of wrongful dismissal today both in relation to the Norwich City versus Newcastle United game on Tuesday 28 January.

"The claim involving Norwich’s Bradley Johnson was upheld meaning his three-match suspension is withdrawn. The claim involving Newcastle’s Loic Remy was dismissed therefore his three-match suspension remains with immediate effect."
