Canada Soccer’s Disciplinary Committee heard the charges of misconduct on 29 Aug against Atletico Ottawa’s Ryan Telfer following his dismissal in a Canadian Premier League match against HFX Wanderers FC.

Telfer made an offensive gesture as he was sent off, berated the fourth official as he left the field of play, and confronted the officials in the tunnel at half time.  In a written submission to the Canada Soccer Disciplinary Hearing Committee, Atletico Ottawa acknowledged an admission of the allegations. 

Telfer has been suspended for an additional two matches which will be added to the suspension for the original sending off offence and was fined an undisclosed amount.
