The Welsh international, never sent-off in his illustrious career, said in today's Sun newspaper: "When you slow it down it looks like I've lunged at him.

"I took off with two feet, but only one went for the ball and I didn't catch Ronny at all.

"The fact that he was honest and professional enough not to go down saved me. If he'd made a meal of it then maybe things would have been different."
