Furious Craig Levein on ‘Abysmal’ Ref Bobby Madden: ‘We Played Against 12 Men’

Hearts boss Craig Levein has blasted referee Bobby Madden after today’s 2-1 defeat to Rangers at Tynecastle by insisting his side played against 12 men.

The Jambos got off to the perfect start when a Gareth McAuley own goal put his side in-front on 27 minutes, but Connor Goldson levelled things up a few minutes later before Alfredo Morelos put the Gers ahead before half-time.

Whilst Rangers saw Scott Arfield sent off for a reckless lunge on Bobby Zlamal, Morelos’s eventual winner looked like it was definitely offside, and Levein was far from happy with the standard of officiating throughout the 90 minutes.

After the full-time whistle, the ex-Scotland manager faced the media, and he definitely didn’t hold back:

Do you think Levein is correct to give the officials such a hard time? And if not, what sort of punishment could he be looking at from the SFA?
