Former Premier League referee Mark Halsey has taken to Twitter to say that he believes Tyrone Mings should be suspended for violent conduct following the incident involving Reading striker Nelson Oliveira.

The clash saw Mings step onto the head of the Portuguese striker which sparked a debate as to whether the incident was a deliberate act of violence or an innocent mistake.

Mings had previously been suspended for a controversial stamp on then Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic during his spell at Bournemouth.

Halsey has clearly made his mind up as he replied to supporters on social media.

I agree my friend, that’s why I believe [the] FA should charge with him violent conduct.

Mings took to social media himself following the match to apologise to Oliveira, who was originally treated on the pitch before being taken to the hospital for surgery. In a post following the game, the Villa loanee said:

Feel awfully sorry to Oliveira, I hope he is ok.
