Hill angry with ref
Rochdale manager Keith Hill was livid with the officials after his side lost 4-0 at home to Scunthorpe.
Hill refused to answer questions relating to referee Tony Harrington after seeing Oli Lancashire and Jack O’Connell sent off in the second half.
“We have not been thrashed at home, we have been denied an opportunity,” said Hill.
“I won’t answer questions about the referee – ask the Referees Association to explain themselves.
“It’s no good asking me, you should be given the opportunity to interview referees so that we can get some truths and reflection on why they are making the decisions they are.
“I will be asking to speak to the referee because I have a list as long as my arm with respect to decisions he could and should have made.”
Iron boss Russ Wilcox thought the referee got the decisions correct.
“Certainly from my viewpoint – the second yellow he was grappling him. It was more of a rugby tackle than a football tackle really. The penalty for me is inside the box and it’s a goalscoring opportunity", he said.
