Rangers player gets red card for sliding studs first into Hearts goalkeeper's face

Obviously, he was sent off.

Scottish football is always eventful and you're never far from something absolutely bizarre happening. This week, it was Scott Arfield's turn to provide us with a horrible, weird, dirty moment of madness.

Rangers were 2-1 up, and the Canada international was charging down the Hearts goalkeeper in what we all assumed was an attempt to poke a potentially loose ball home.

Zdeněk Zlámal managed to keep hold of the ball, preventing Rangers from doubling their one-goal cushion. But that didn't stop Arfield from charging in, full speed ahead, studs first, straight into Zlámal's face, did it?

No. It didn't. Arfield couldn't resist the chance to go flying into the opposition goalkeeper, for no other reason but to be a shithouse, apparently.

Watch it in all its glory below.

Oh, and yes, he was, of course, sent off for his actions. Rangers went on to win the game 2-1 against the Edinburgh side. Steven Gerrard's side are now top of the league, one point ahead of Celtic who have a game in hand over their Glasgow rivals.
