Randolph caught Callum Paterson with his leg as he collected a high ball in the early exchanges but referee Crawford Allan deemed the challenge not worthy of a card of any description.

McGlynn said: "We thought his foot was in a place where it probably shouldn't have been, to be honest.

"I don't think the boy was being malicious about it but it could have ended up worse than it actually was. I think he maybe got lucky.

"I haven't seen it again, but that's how I saw it. I think his leg seemed to go in an unnatural position.

"I think Callum has actually passed the boy's knee. I think it was his trailing foot. He had a sore head at half-time and took painkillers."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
