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."

m only commenting on this (I don't care about Liverpool) because F365's twitter said I had call Matt Stanger a tw*t (which I don't agree with anyway) but I just wanted to be the first. Am I the first?

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
