The Dons took the points from St Mirren Park with an Adam Rooney penalty 10 minutes from time, after Eric Djemba-Djemba slid in to trip Peter Pawlett on the 18-yard line.

"Again it's another big decision that's gone against us I feel," said Lennon.

"The viewers at home will have the opportunity to debate whether it is inside or outside the box, and it's a big call from the referee with the position that he's in.

"I've only see it the once there and as I said, it feels like a decision that's gone against us.

"It's very much hard to take. It's one you can debate whether it's inside the box or not. But for a man of Eric's experience to make that type of challenge in and around that area is disappointing.

"The players went out there and did everything we had asked against a high-flying Aberdeen side."

Aberdeen assistant boss Tony Docherty admitted the team had to grind out a result, but he was delighted with the application of the visitors.

"It's important that we have that winning mentality and I think we had it today," Docherty said.

"We didn't play at our best, up to the level of performance in our previous games but we dug a result out.

"It went for us today, and we've come away from a difficult venue against a very dogged team who were set up to be that way and come away with three points, so we've done our bit."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
