Keane's 'wrongful dismissal' claim rejected
Tottenham's Robbie Keane has had his claim for wrongful dismissal rejected by the Football Association.
He will serve a one-match suspension with immediate effect for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity against Bolton in Sunday's Barclays Premiership clash at White Hart Lane.
Keane was furious with referee Graham Poll after his 36th-minute dismissal for handling Ivan Campo's header on the line.
The ball struck the chest of the Republic of Ireland striker before appearing to hit his arm as it dropped, and Poll issued a straight red card.
Keane's red card marked the end an action-packed cameo from Spurs' stand-in skipper - he scored two goals and also set up Jermaine Jenas before receiving his marching orders.
It was the first red card of Keane's professional career.
