He should be in the sin bin for that
Player getting booked for not wanting a bottle in the head. Classy ref.
I always knew some refs were idiots but that guy took it to another level
Wow. That's bad.
Mind you, the ref's previous claim to fame was that he was the guy who failed to give Barcelona a goal against Betis, even though the ball was way over the line. Obviously wants to be famous.
Is the official auditioning for a new show, "Millwall's Dream Ref"?
How can a ref be allowed to be such a bellend? No wonder the lack of respect becomes worse when such incidents happrn
Got off lightly.
Michael Oliver would have sent Herrera off after he avoided the first bottle.
In situations like this, you don't know what sort of language players use to communicate with the refs. Granted, missile throwing is an offence in itself but surely no referee could be stupid enough to book him for handing him a bottle. I'd suspect he may have used some choice words, but i am sure it will all become clear in the post match refs report.
I think he was probably done for time wasting which is ridiculous when a player is being pelted with projectiles.
He shouldve just thrown a bottle at the ref when he wasnt looking.
Mark Noble would've picked Herrera up and carried him off the pitch.
Ref bottled that
Players have to play with passion and blood.. literally. Time is gold.
White text, that is a bad referee-ing, the player doesn't even blatantly waste time. Sheesh. I'm surprised there are no stadium security or something.
That ref would be good in England, fit in well.
Yet if anything happened to the ref he'd probably start breakdancing, rather like the guy Paul Alcock did when Di Canio pushed him.
What a useless cnut. Sack that ref immediately.
Griffiths got his own back by tying a Celtic scarf to a goalpost after the game! That cant have gone down well!
David Healys comments after the game were a disgrace!
Scumbag fans, disgraceful referee.
Today in a non-league friendly I saw the ref drop his cards. A player pointed this out to him and was booked for his pains! Same ref also booked another player for shouting to his team mates.
It's Leigh Griffiths, he should be booked for breathing.
I don't care if it's a Vinnie Jones 2 footed lunge, a Roy Keane sideswipe or indeed a Jiff lemon bottle aimed at your head, there is simply no excuse for diving. Deserved his booking he did!
He used to run the shopping centre in the town I grew up in, we used to fall down whenever he walked through!
Id book him for his hair cut alone.
Brilliant. You can't do that as a player, but you certainly can't do that as a referee .
What a fecking prize twat, and they wonder why refs get so much stick, I wish the ref was hit by a bottle while he was giving him the yellow card, he'd probably have sent him off ffs.
I asked Jonathan Moss if this was the correct decision and he agreed with the ref because he not only kicked a bottle once but twice.
I'd say he got off lucky. Three more kicks and he would have landed himself some jailtime for illegally transporting litter.
What did that prick say?
Still not as bad as the red card for Nani in the UCL or mixing up Oxlade and Gibbs imo
He did a Wenger.
Horrible club and fans
They are basically Rangers jnr
That ref should be chewed out and the yellow card rescinded
Stupid yellow card. I would hope the ref is demoted for a while after that
Rangers aren't the Scottish club with the previous for hitting people on the park with crap flung from the stands.
No, Rangers are such peaceful sectarian nutters, their club and support having never displayed comparable behaviour before
He began by saying he didn't see the incident! I mean how could that be the case when Griffiths held up the bottle and all! Where did he think it could have come from?
What really pissed me off though was that he said players in Manchester derby's would get similar abuse from opposition fans. For all the Manchester derby's I've seen I've never seem a player have a glass bottle thrown at them. The fact that he hasn't come out and condoned their behaviour makes him as bad as them. Absolute scumbag.
He comes from a loyalist family I wouldnt expect anything else
As a Protestant Northern Irish man, living in a "loyalist area" I have to apologise, I'm no Linfield fan or fan of our league as it's sectarian mess. Just wanted to say the majority of Northern Irish folk are not like this, were actually nice .
HAve to say that's not really fair, a loyalist doesn't mean your a sectarian. In my eyes it simply means, in Northern Irish terms, you want to stay part on the union, it's pretty much a different word for Unionist except the media has put an evil spin on it.
