Former Chelsea player and Brazilian international Ramires was, to put it politely, very unhappy with the referee after a game in the Chinese league on Saturday. 

His Jiangsu Suning side slipped to a 2-1 defeat against Shandong Luneng, who sit near the bottom of the table, which puts them seven points behind the league leaders Guangzhou Evergrande in the hunt for a title. 

There were ugly scenes at the end of the game as Ramires was sent off by the referee after an altercation, and he did not take kindly to that decision at all. 

The Brazilian tried to confront the man in charge of the match, and had to be held back by a number of team-mates, as well as staff from the sidelines, as he looked to have completely lost his temper. 

Ramires only joined the club in January, a move that surprised many, but rumours persist that he is not happy with the move and wants a return to Europe. Who knows, he might have been trying to get himself sent home early...
