Shenhua was a goal down in the 89th minute when Yatai midfielder Matt McKay went down clutching his stomach, in what appeared to be a cynical attempt to run down the clock.

McKay's behavior was over the top and exaggerated, so Shenhua player Wang Shouting decided to take matters into his own hands.

In an effort to speed up the process, Wang decided to physically drag the play-acting Australian from the field.

Unfortunately for Wang, the referee was not amused and the 27-year-old was shown a red card as a result.
