STEPHEN Glass tonight claimed that his Aberdeen side had been denied a victory over Rangers at Ibrox by two poor refereeing decisions.

The Pittodrie club took a two goal lead in the opening 16 minutes of the cinch Premiership match in Govan through Christian Ramirez and Scott Brown headers.

However, Alfredo Morelos nodded in a James Tavernier free-kick in the first-half and Tavernier netted a penalty late on after Fashion Sakala had gone down in the visitors’ area.

Glass argued that match official John Beaton had got the free-kick and penalty calls wrong.

"I am happy, but I think we could have walked away with more,” he said. “There was obviously an incident with a penalty kick which doesn't look like a penalty kick to me.

"Other than that I thought we were brilliant defensively and carried a threat as well. I am happy to come away with a point. I would have taken it if you had given me that at the start of the day.

“But I am pretty disappointed with the way it has ended. It is not a penalty kick. It is a little bit of coming together, it isn't a penalty kick.

"I don't get involve with criticising referees. I get involved a bit at the side because you get emotional. But I was interested in Robbie's (Hearts manager Neilson) comments last week and I am disappointed.

"They are a really good team with really good players so to get undone by a free-kick that doesn’t look like a free-kick and a penalty that doesn’t look like a penalty? I think that’s good for us."

Lewis Ferguson was booked by match official Beaton, who gave the spot kick after ruling that David Bates had pushed over Sakala, for protesting about the free-kick award that led to Morelos's goal.

“I think you can tell by players’ reactions when free-kicks are free-kicks and penalties are penalties,” said Glass.

“You could see that Lewis was very disappointed with the refereeing decision. He got yellow carded for it, for shouting at him.”
