Salford City goalkeeper Max Crocombe was left red faced after he was sent off for urinating during his side's 2-1 win at Bradford Park Avenue during the National league North game on Saturday.

The stopper clearly couldn't wait to go, and was dismissed in the 86th minute of the  game, forcing outfield player Richie Allen to go in goal.

Salford, who are part-owned by former Manchester United 'Class of 92' stars Gary and Phil Neville , Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs - were initially unaware of what their goalkeeper had been sent off for.

Crocombe later apologised, saying he has been in an 'uncomfortable position' and made 'an error in judgment'.

Writing on his Twitter account, he added: "My intention was never to offend anyone and I'd like to apologize to both clubs and sets of supporters."

During the game, Park Avenue tweeted: "We can confirm that Crocombe has been sent off for urinating during the game. We are not joking."

Former Oxford goalkeeper Crocombe joined Salford in May.  

Salford City FC reacted to the dismissal by tweeting: "Red Card! Crocombe sees red for something off the ball. No one has a clue what has happened."
