West Brom striker Adil Nabi saw his Indian Super League (ISL) loan spell end on a sour note after he was sent off from the sidelines towards the end of Delhi Dynamos’ semi-final defeat to Goa.
Delhi held a 1-0 lead going into Tuesday's second leg at the Fatorda Stadium but goals from overseas trio Joffre, Rafael Coelho and Dudu saw Goa seal their place in the final 3-1 on aggregate.
Nabi and manager Roberto Carlos became embroiled in a heated row with the fourth official, four minutes after Delhi conceded the third goal.
That resulted in Nabi being shown a red card by the referee. The West Brom starlet threw his bib to the ground and was involved in angry exchanges with Goa fans as he made his way off the field and back to the dressing room.
Nabi - the first Premier League player ever to join an ISL side - has impressed during his two-month loan spell and was singled out for praise from Delhi team-mates John Arne Riise and Florent Malouda.
The 21-year-old scored three goals in his previous five starts before Tuesday's second leg and will hope he has done enough to force his way into West Brom boss Tony Pulis' plans for the remainder of the season.
