Barca 'keeper Valdes banned for four games

Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been banned for four games following his angry confrontation with a referee at the end of last week's defeat to Real Madrid.

Valdes was red carded for his persistent remonstrations with match official Perez Lasa and has been hit with the maximum sanction by the Primera Division's disciplinary committee.

Valdes is due to miss games against Deportivo La Coruna, Real Mallorca, Rayo Vallecano and Celta Vigo, but the club have already signalled their intention to appeal.
