Kettlewell discusses Rangers VAR calls and red card with the SFA Head of Reference


The Fir Park chairman demanded answers after losing due to Rangers’ third goal and the decision to send off Callum Slattery for a second yellow card.

Kettlewell was left confused about the decision to allow Todd Cantwell’s goal to stand with Vachon Scala claiming it was offside in the build-up.

Bevis Mugabe also questioned the use of “suspect” offside lines to determine whether a player was offside when the goal was checked by the video assistant referee.

He also criticized the decision to send off Slattery after Cantwell fell as Slattery looked to protect the ball with an outstretched arm.

Now, Motherwell’s boss has revealed that he and Alan spoke about the decisions this morning.

“That’s my biggest frustration,” Kettlewell said on BBC Sportsound. “It’s not a second yellow but with the player’s reaction (it feels like it).”

“I said this to Allan Crawford this morning when I had a conversation with him.

It was a friendly conversation. I just had a few questions I wanted answered.”

However, Kettlewell added that he appreciated the difficult task Nick Walsh faced during the match outlining Cantwell’s reaction to being together.

He added: “But I said I realize Nick Walsh’s job becomes very difficult when a player steps back the way he did and grabs his face.

“There was contact, but it wasn’t in his face. That’s when you start to get frustrated.

“It’s difficult for Nick Walsh with the scenario he’s been given, but I don’t think it was a yellow card.”

Mugabe said of the Rangers’ third goal Lanarkshire Live“It was a bit questionable. A lot of people noticed that the lines looked a bit suspicious but that’s out of our control, we can’t control what the VAR does,” he said.

“All we can do is focus on ourselves and make sure we do what we’re supposed to do during the game.

“It’s a shame we couldn’t hold out a little longer than we did after the goal and the sending off didn’t help either.”
