Reuben Reid has been suspended for two weeks having returned to Plymouth early from a loan spell at Rochdale.
The young striker has been sent back to Home Park by Dale, with Pilgrims boss Ian Holloway fuming at his player's indiscretion, which he is not willing to disclose.
Holloway admits to being bitterly disappointed with Reid's behaviour, warning him that he has let his club down badly.
"I have suspended him for two weeks," Holloway told the club's official website.
"They did not want him there anymore. It is internal and I deal with it.
"I think they can terminate the deal if they don't want him anymore, which is very disappointing because he is representing me, and my team, and my club.
"I don't take kindly to people not behaving properly and then making excuses. I have got to be very careful.
"He has been sent home to Bristol and he comes back in a week on Monday to see me with his dad."
