Derek Mclnnes criticizes refereeing decisions after Scottish Cup draw

Aberdeen boss Derek Mclnnes has slammed refereeing decisions after his side suffered a draw in the Scottish Cup match against Kilmarnock at Pittodrie Stadium, as per the Daily Record.

The 48-years-old manager claimed that many decisions have gone against his side in the previous few games, adding that the whole world would have known if this happened to Celtic or Rangers.

Mclnnes insisted that they should have been given a penalty in the 0-0 draw against the East Ayrshire club.

He told the media:

“We should get a penalty again. That’s three penalties we’ve been denied in the last five games. If it Rangers and Celtic the whole world would know about it.

“Once again Matty Kennedy is brought down and it’s a penalty we haven’t been given. We should have had a penalty against Motherwell and St Mirren.

“It’s not good enough.

“We’ve got to try to help ourselves though. The composure was good on a difficult surface and the conditions were farcical at times.

“I was told right away it was inside the box. The referee has listened to his linesman but they’ve got to be better than that; it’s a penalty kick.”

This latest draw means that Aberdeen are winless in their previous five matches, including defeats against Motherwell and St. Johnstone.

The Reds fans expressed their anger at their team’s disappointing result by booing their players off at the final whistle.

They are currently placed fourth at the Premiership table, winning 10 matches and earning 8 draws.
