Blackburn striker Jay Bothroyd has apologised for a "moment of madness" which saw him sent off at the weekend for kicking Norwich's Mattias Jonson.
Bothroyd has admitted he deserved his marching orders at Carrow Road
Bothroyd, on loan from Italian side Perugia, has apologised to Rovers boss Mark Hughes, his team-mates and fans.
"I lost my head. As soon as it happened I couldn't believe what I'd done. I acted unprofessionally," he said.
"You have to learn from your mistakes and that's what I intend to do. I will come back both stronger and wiser."
