The referee who sent Cristiano Ronaldo off against Athletic Bilbao last week has been suspended for a month.

Spanish radio station Cadena Cope are reporting that Miguel Angel Ayza Gamez has been dropped after his performance in the 1-1 draw.

The station also says that Gamez will not be allowed to officiate any more Real Madrid matches this season.

The Spanish Football Federation meet today to decide whether or not to overturn Ronaldo's three match suspension.
