Majoro had opened the scoring for the Bucs in the first half, but a rush of blood to the head saw him blatantly stomp on Mahlatsi Makhudubela in the 62nd minute.

As a result, the 28-year-old was shown the red card by the referee, ruling him out for Pirates next two fixtures.

Speaking to his club's official website, a remorseful Majoro said: "I know what I did was wrong.

"I acted out of anger and lost sight of what was important, which is my teammates and the Orlando Pirates brand.

"The referee acted accordingly because I deserved the red card and I would like to apologise to the Orlando Pirates supporters and the entire football fraternity for my actions.

“I'm better than that, and they deserve better than that; I promise not to do it again.

"I especially want to extend my apology to my colleague Mahlatse. As professional footballers we should treat each other with respect and always set an example.

"I went to apologise to him immediately after the match because I realised the error of my ways and I had to tell him man to man that I was wrong."
