Barcelona: Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been suspended for four Spanish league matches after receiving a straight red card for verbally abusing a referee following his team's 2-1 defeat against Real Madrid at the weekend.

The competition committee of the Spanish Football Federation sanctioned Valdes on Wednesday, the club said in a statement.

Referee Miguel Angel Perez Lasa noted in his match report that Valdes swore at him after he had not given a penalty against Sergio Ramos and shouted, "You are shameless."
