McGlynn was furious at Ryan Stevenson being shown a straight red by referee Willie Collum for a challenge on Gary Mackay-Steven, a decision that left Hearts with an uphill battle.

"The sending off killed the game, and it was probably a very good game for 25 minutes or so," McGlynn said.

"The few people I have spoken to who have seen it on TV think it was harsh. We will have a look at it once we get some video coverage but it didn't help us today.

"According to Ryan, the lad [Collum] says that he never touched him but that is the rulebook and he has to go with the rulebook.

"The players feel if you go into a tackle when you are on the ground you can hardly go with your studs on the ground.

"It is hard enough losing a player for an experienced side to cope with but we're not an experienced team.

"We had a lot of young players out there today so it was hard going. We gave ourselves a chance through Michael Ngoo's goal late on but I can't fault the players too much for their effort."

England call-up for Clyne

T

he 'where does it end' argument is an absurd one and completely misses the point of the Rooney Rule, which applies to all minorities. It doesn't force any team to appoint anyone, it merely requires them to interview at least one minority candidate.
