Sergio Ramos Overtakes Scholes To Become The Champions League’s Most Booked Player

In receiving a caution in the 23rd minute of play, Real Madrid supporters were treated to an all-too-familiar sight as Sergio Ramos took Paul Scholes‘ record of having the most yellow cards in the Champions League history.

Up until Wednesday’s clash with Roma, the Spanish defender had been tied with the Manchester United legend on 36 yellows, however he has now moved one clear.

Ramos has also set the record for most cards in a single edition of the tournament with five, something he managed in both the 2010/11 and 2012/13 seasons.

On this note, Scholes never surpassed the mark of four yellow cards in a single edition of the Champions League.

With regards to red cards, the former Sevilla defender has been sent off on three separate occasions, which is one more than the former England playmaker.
