I use both of Olbaldys suggested methods. Heres another;
create a new layer
run filter "average"
bring up curves and select the grey eye dropper and click on the solid red image
delete the red layer

There are dozens of ways to remove color casts depending on the image. If the image is a color photo which has faded to heavy read, there are a number of PS Plugins designed specifically to correct the color. This include Kodak's Digital ROC and Picto's One click Color correct. There are many other like them. They often produce excellent results without you having to fine tune curves and levels.
