Starting our list of Top 10 Funny Red Cards Soccer 2016 we have none other than Dean Windass. He could be listed thrice for all it counts. Playing for Aberdeen in 2007 he picked up not just one but three red cards in fewer than 2 minutes. The future Hull City legend was first dismissed for when he was shown a second yellow card but things escalated when he continue to show his disagreement to that decision and was booked again. Going off the field he kicked the corner flag which earned him a third. It was quite the record but certainly an undesirable one.

Mirkovic earned a free kick but Jarni came up to him to let him in on his thoughts about his play-acting.
