Brisbane Roar have learned the fates of goalkeeper Michael Theo as well as officials Craig Moore and Ross Aloisi.

The former two have both been cited by Football Federation Australia (FFA); Moore for dissent towards referees, and Aloisi for an alleged incident involving Adelaide United assistant Jacob Ramallo at full time of Sunday’s 2-1 loss against the Reds.

“Brisbane Roar officials, Craig Moore and Ross Aloisi, have been cited under the FFA National Code of Conduct,” an FFA statement read.

“Craig Moore has been cited for alleged comments made towards match officials.

“Ross Aloisi has been cited for an alleged incident with an opposition coach in the tunnel. Both incidents occurred immediately after the conclusion of Brisbane Roar’s A-League Round 23 match against Adelaide United on Sunday, 19 March 2017.”

Brisbane can provide responses to the show cause notices by 5pm on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, shot-stopper Theo, who was sent off for an elbow to the head of United defender Dylan McGowan, has been hit with a three-game ban.

“The MRP determined that Theo committed the offence of ‘Assault on a Player (e.g. violent conduct when challenging for the ball) including an attempted Assault on a Player’,” the statement continued.

“The minimum sanction for the offence is two matches (being the mandatory match suspension plus one additional match).

“The MRP has proposed a sanction of two matches, being the mandatory match suspension plus one additional match.”

Like the two officials, the Roar can appeal the suspension, but must do so by 12pm Tuesday.
