Rodgers rages at referee

Published Add your comment

Brendan Rodgers launched in to a tirade against referee Phil Dowd for his performance as Liverpool's eight-match unbeaten run came to an unfortunate end at Tottenham.

Spurs ran out 2-1 winners at White Hart Lane thanks to a stunning free-kick from Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon's first half tap-in but Rodgers, whose team pulled a goal back courtesy of a Bale own goal, was infuriated at Dowd for not awarding them two spot-kicks.

"Nothing is going for us away from home, that's how its been all season in terms of decisions," Liverpool boss Rodgers said. "We should have had two [penalties tonight]. It's incredible to have gone through the season without getting a penalty."
