Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, selected in FIFA's team of the year on Monday, has been banned for five matches after being sent off and insulting the referee in the King's Cup victory over Celta Vigo on Wednesday.  

The Spanish federation said that Ramos repeatedly called the referee 'shameless' after receiving his second yellow card for fouling Celta's Alex Lopez in the last-16 match.

Ramos will miss Real Madrid's upcoming La Liga matches against Osasuna, Valencia, and Getafe and both legs of their Copa quarterfinal against Valencia.

Real are already without injured defender Pepe. They are only third in the league, 16 points behind leaders Barcelona.

Espanyol forward Sergio Garcia was suspended for four games earlier this season for insulting a referee.
