Newcastle United winger Ryan Fraser has set an unwanted record following his send-off against Sheffield United earlier on Tuesday evening.

The Scotland international saw his second yellow card of the game in the 44th minute for recklessly kicking into David McGoldrick as the striker passed the ball away this coming after he was booked for hacking down John Fleck.

According to journalist Richard Jolly, who normally provides statistics, Fraser has become the shortest player to ever be sent off in Premier League history, replacing a feat set by Brighton ace Tariq Lamptey towards the end of last November.

The former AFC Bournemouth man stands at 5ft4, with Lamptey an inch taller than the winger; the player being the shortest player in the Premier League.
