New Delhi: The Turkish league encounter on Sunday between Galatasaray and Trabzonspor witnessed a rather unique incident.

Trabzonspor's Salih Dursun turned the tables, as he flashed a red card to the referee during his team's 2-1 defeat by Galatasaray.

The flashpoint occurred in the 86th minute after referee Deniz Bitnel showed a straight red to Dursun's team mate Luis Cavanda for a foul inside the penalty area.

Trabzonspor's players surrounded the official to protest and, in the resulting melee, Dursun snatched the card out of Bitnel's hand and waved it in the official's direction, earning himself a sending off and reducing his team to seven men.
