Some Liverpool fans outraged on Twitter as Kane only sees yellow for studs-up challenge on Robertson

Posted by

Poor refereeing decisions will appear to once again dominate the weekend’s fixtures, with Harry Kane’s studs-up tackle on Andy Robertson somehow avoiding a red card from the official.

The England captain had gone in hard on his opponent after the left-back had distributed the ball, in a challenge that could have just as likely seriously injured the former Hull City man.

Understandably, a number of Liverpool fans felt inclined to jump onto Twitter to vent their frustrations at the poor decision-making being shown from Paul Tierney.

Whilst we can accept that sending off a player as key as Kane early in the game can have damaging ramifications as far as the contest is concerned, one has to wonder about the precedent it sets for such horrific challenges in future fixtures.

The reality of the situation, regardless of the player or timing, is that such challenges that risk the safety of the player tackled should be punished severely.

It’s yet another poor moment from officials, though hopefully one of the last we observe before the game is out.

  1. 3 Shittest Refs in EPL – David Koote, Paul Tierney (very close 2nd), Martin Atkinson and VAR. Paul Tierney thinks that because it is Christmas, handing out yellow and red cards like Christmas cards. Kane should have been sent off. FFS – Tierney get your eyes out of your a@#e. Jota should have had a penalty. As for Dermot Gallagher, Robertson’s leg needs to be broken before Kane gets a red. These f!@#$%g refs are all full of shyte.
