Rijkaard calm over spot-kick claim

Next Story
Barcelona coach Frank Rijkaard was philosophical about the goalless draw against Rangers in the Champions League even though his side could have had a penalty.

Television pictures showed that a Ronaldinho effort came off the hand of Alan Hutton but the incident was missed by referee Konrad Plautz but, even though a spot-kick could have made all the difference to the final outcome, Rijkaard refused to criticise the Austrian official.

"I don´t think you don´t win because of one decision," he pointed out. "You don´t win because sometimes you make the wrong decisions instead of making a goal."
