Sheffield Wednesday manager Steve Bruce will be relieved after his side left it late at the weekend, when they scored an equaliser in the 10th minute of time added on, to claim a 2-2 draw against Rotherham in the Championship.
But any joy for Bruce will have been short-lived after referee Darren England sent off Owls striker Fernando Forestieri, after he received a second yellow card in the aftermath of the goal, for a high-five with an away fan, as reported on Sky Sports.
Dominic Iorfa had converted from close range to steal a point for Wednesday, but did Forestieri deserve his red card?
“No, of course not.
“Passion is what we want in football. It wasn’t offensive or aggressive.
“It’s the sort of petty stifling of expression that kills the character in our players.
“It should be rescinded.”
“What a joke of a decision this was.
“Rules need to be looked at and referees need to stop looking to be the centre of attention in matches.
“Stop trying to steal the limelight and just do your job properly.
“It was a ludicrous decision by the official.”
“No he didn’t, at all.
“What about the foul he was on the end of in the first half? How on Earth was that not a red card?
“It’s a disgrace.”
“Bureaucracy at its worst.
“It’s symptomatic of the modern game to be sent off for trying to high-five a fan after a last-minute equaliser.
“If the authorities have any sense, they will overturn this as it’s stupid even to consider this an offence.
