Paul Tierney DROPPED after drop ball controversy that sparked angry scenes

Published

on

PAUL TIERNEY has been dropped from refereeing the next round of fixtures after controversially allowing Liverpool to snatch a late winner at Nottingham Forest.

The referee drew criticism after giving the Reds possession with a drop ball in the build up to Darwin Nunez’s last-gasp winner.

Liverpool defender Ibrahima Konate had gone down with a head injury following a Forest corner after appearing to clash with his own goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher.

And despite Forest having possession with Callum Hudson-Odoi when the match was paused, Tierney dropped the ball back to Kelleher.

Within seconds the ball was back up the other end of the pitch and in the Forest net – cue uproar around the City Ground.

Tierney has been punished by the PGMOL for his error by not being allowed to referee a match this weekend.
