Derek McInnes concedes that the decision to award Kilmarnock a penalty against Rangers during the most recent encounter between the teams was incorrect.

Early in the game at Rugby Park on Wednesday, February 28, John Lundstram was penalised for a handball inside the box after blocking a Danny Armstrong cross. 

Killie's players were vocal in their appeal, and referee David Dickinson was quick to point to the spot.

VAR upheld the decision after a review of the situation, and Armstrong stepped up to score to give the hosts the lead. The game ended 2-1 to Philippe Clement's side, with James Tavernier and Tom Lawrence scoring in the second half.

The latest review says VAR should have intervened and overturned Dickinson's decision. And that's something Killie's boss McInnes struggled to argue against.

He told Sky Sports: "You hear former referees and current referees disagreeing on what should class as a penalty and whether an incident should be penalised with a penalty or not. It's clear as mud a lot of the time with handball.

"The handball here on John Lundstram, I thought initially it was clear as day, his hand was up. But when you see it again, you can see why Rangers were disappointed the penalty was given. When the contact was made, his arm was in. It probably shouldn't have been a penalty.

"We've got to get better and clearer messaging with a lot of these issues, particularly the handball."

The VAR Independent Review Panel update confirmed 26 'key match incidents' reached an incorrect outcome in the Scottish Premiership this season.

The Scottish FA shared statistics on the operation of VAR with Scottish Premiership clubs on Wednesday with detail on major wrong decisions this term.
