Video: A referee finally fights back with Neil Warnock
QPR boss meets his match official match
QPR boss Neil Warnock has turned haranguing referees into an art-form. But following his side’s 2-0 defeat to Leeds on Saturday, he found referee Scott Mathieson was more than a match for his tirade.
Cameras in the Elland Road tunnel caught Warnock vowing to show Mathieson “four in the second half” (we’re not sure if that was dodgy offside calls, bad fouls, decisions he got wrong or what).
Mathieson does his best to out-grump Warnock by prodding his finger in his general direction and responding: “Well I tell you what, I’ll show you four or five bad passes and all.”
Perhaps the League Managers Association will have to start holding disciplinary hearings for back-chat from refs!
