David Moyes admitted he deserved to be sent to the stands after Sunderland tumbled out of the EFL Cup at Southampton.
The Black Cats boss was furious after his struggling side were denied a late penalty when Maya Yoshida brought down Victor Anichebe in the area.
But the Scot's industrial language towards fourth official James Adcock earned him his marching orders as Sunderland crashed out to Sofiane Boufal's strike.
"I was sent off for leaving my box and swearing at the fourth official," Moyes said.
"The problem was he chased me down the touchline. I swore at him and I shouldn't have done so I deserved to be sent off."
Moyes was in no doubt about the late penalty claim which angered him so much but was waved away by ref Chris Kavanagh.
"When you see it again it's a stonewaller, no question," he added. "Inside the box Yoshida fouls Victor, he comes across him, and it should have been a definite penalty awarded."
Sofiane Boufal scored his first Southampton goal on his first start for the club to send the Saints marching into the EFL Cup last eightRead the full story ›
David Moyes is hoping an extended EFL Cup run can revive Sunderland's Premier League fortunes just as it did three seasons ago.
Then head coach Gus Poyet guided the Black Cats to the League Cup final in March 2014 and although they lost 3-1 to Manchester City at Wembley, they finished the campaign with a momentum which brought them four league wins in the last five games and saw them finish in 14th place, five points clear of the drop zone.
Current boss Moyes takes his beleaguered side to Southampton on Wednesday evening having collected just two of the first 27 points on offer and sitting at the foot of the table.
Look, I genuinely want to go and get through. It's a tough game, a tough draw for us to go away to Southampton. I think if we were at home we would be saying 'We'll have a bit of that'.
But going to Southampton, the form they are in at the moment... I don't know what they'll do, but they have had a really busy schedule with being in Milan, being at Manchester City.
They have got a good squad, they have got good players, but my feeling is they will probably change their team as well.
