Just hours after hearing that his red card had been transferred to West Brom team-mate Craig Dawson, Gareth McAuley was captured with an alternative room-mate to Chris Brunt.

The Northern Ireland centre-back was dismissed in the second minute of West Brom's clash with Manchester City on Saturday for a foul on Wilfried Bony. But it was Dawson who had committed the offence.

Referee Neil Swarbrick admitted he sent off the wrong man at Etihad Stadium and the Football Association yesterday transferred McAuley's red card from the 3-0 Premier League defeat to Dawson who will now serve a one-match ban.

The Northern Ireland international, who will be in action in Wednesday's friendly against Scotland at Hampden Park, has clearly got over Saturday's frustration and has featured in a hilarious video uploaded by Northern Ireland team sponsors Vauxhall.
