"Shoot them" Doncaster Rovers manager Darren Ferguson makes outrageous claim after officials deny his side a late penalty

Doncaster Rovers boss Darren Ferguson was left seething after his side were denied a last minute penalty and claimed that the FA should shoot the officials in charge.

Ferguson watched on from the sidelines as his team were held at home to a 1-1 draw by visitors Plymouth Argyle .

But it was the drama in the final few moments that caused Ferguson to rage in the post-match press conference, as he felt his side deserved a penalty.

Ferguson said, “It’s the most blatant penalty you’ll ever see, there’s nothing to think about.

“The defender has just pulled Andy Butler to the floor. The linesman can see it, he’s stood looking right at it.

“It’s the clearest penalty you’ll see all season, and the goal is a clear foul, and the linesman is laughing at the end of the game about it. I think it’s disgusting.

“The referees are part-time and the standard is appalling, their fitness levels are a disgrace, I’ve had enough of it.

Doncaster took the lead when Alfie Beestin opened the scoring with his first goal for the club, before Ryan Edwards equalised for Plymouth with just over quarter of an hour to play.

But Ferguson felt that his side were robbed of a chance to win the match by referee Andy Haines.

He said, “When they look at it, they’ll say it was a blatant penalty, a blatant foul.”

When questioned on what action the FA could take, the 45-year-old said, “What can I do? Shoot them, it would be a good idea.”

Before adding, “I have to shut my mouth and I have to make sure I’m being respectful, but when they’re laughing at the end of the game saying ‘it’s my opinion and that’s what counts’, I think we’ve seen enough now.”
