The warm-up was about as close as Tim Cahill got to last night’s A-League Melbourne derby after managing the impressive feat of getting himself sent-off before setting foot on the pitch.

About to enter the fray in the 87th minute with his Melbourne City side trailing 2-1 to bitter rivals Victory, Cahill gave the assistant referee an earful and promptly got himself red-carded before the substitution was made…

Talk about an impact sub.

For the record, City went on to lose 2-1.
