Boro Manager Neil Warnock Angry With Referee After Home Defeat To Norwich

Neil Warnock was left fuming with referee Tony Harrington after Middlesbrough's defeat to Norwich City, describing his performance as 'Mike Riley Part II'.

In a tale of two penalties, Marcus Tavernier's missed spot-kick proved costly for Boro as Teemu Pukki went up the other end and despatched his to send Norwich top of the Championship.

But it was Harrington's decision not to send off Canaries left-back Jacob Sorensen that annoyed Warnock so much, with the Danish defender already on a booking when he fouled Sam Folarin.

After fighting his way through a crowd of bodies at the full-time whistle to make his feelings to Harrington clear, he then told the press after: "You need a bit of luck. When Sam goes past that kid on the far side on the far side with ten to go, and he doesn’t send him off for a second booking. It was worse than the first [yellow].

“He didn’t even book him. And for then for him to say to me after the game he didn’t think Sam was going to catch the ball, and the ball was only going to go ten yards maximum when you look at it back, 15 at most, and Sam will be through. Why is he telling me that? Because he knows he is completely wrong. They all know he should have got sent off.

“Why haven’t we got officials that know what they are doing. It is a disgrace.
