Dany Rose has labelled the application of VAR during Tottenham’s 6-1 win over Rochdale as “shambolic”.

Erik Lamela’s strike was disallowed, after a delay of about two minutes, for a minor infringement by Fernando Llorente and there were other controversies in the snowy FA Cup tie on Wednesday night.

Those included Son Heung-min’s penalty being ruled out after pausing in his run-up. This was also after referee Paul Tierney checked with VAR.

Rose said it was “shambolic” and an “absolute disgrace” after fans and pundits were left bemused.

Speaking to talkSPORT, the Spurs full-back said: “We got the job done under shambolic circumstances through the game.

“An absolute disgrace, waiting around for I don’t know how many minutes to get a decision.

“It’s just laughable. It just ruined it a little bit.”
