The incident in question sparked a scuffle between the two teams that ultimately led to Haouas being sent-off for a punch on Jamie Ritchie.

“We have found some quite revealing images that I have transferred to the disciplinary commission,” Ibanez said

“We have filled our dossier as precise as possible. It’s now in the hands of the disciplinary commission.

“The act (Haouas’ punch) was justifiably punished but we need to understand why. It wasn’t by accident.”
