Michael Stewart baffled by 'Incredible' penalty controversy in Rangers win v Aberdeen

Michael Stewart was baffled by the officials’ decision not to award a penalty against Rangers in their win over Aberdeen, dubbing it “incredible”.

Todd Cantwell’s third goal of the season sealed all three points for Michael Beale’s side but not before Connor Goldson brought down Duk with the referee deeming it not a foul.

Replays show that Goldson dragged him down inside the box, and Stewart couldn’t help but mock the officials for not awarding a penalty and keep Rangers’ record of no penalty conceded this season alive.

“Absolutely embarrassing from the officials,” he said while posting a video of the incident on Twitter (7 May).

“Aberdeen’s incredible run of clean sheets and victories came to an end at Ibrox while Rangers incredible run of no penalties against continued, incredibly,” he wrote on his personal Twitter account (7 May) in a separate message.

Not our fault

Blaming Rangers for referees not giving decisions to other teams against us is such a strange thing to do.

We claimed a hard-fought and well deserved win over Aberdeen, and while the Goldson ghost foul was certainly an odd decision it’s hardly something we have control of.

If it had been given then nobody would have said it was a bad decision, but the same type of thing has happened to us at times too although people don’t remember because we usually win the game anyway.

We haven’t conceded a penalty in a while simply because it’s not often that we have to defend too much as we’re a possession-based, dominant team in the majority of our fixtures.

There’s some sort of suggestions that we’re cheating or being favoured, but if that were the case we’d be the champions and not struggling massively. Get over it and accept that the referees make mistakes both ways.
