St Mirren boss Jim Goodwin with upset with the red card that Cammy MacPherson received in the recent 1-0 loss to St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park.
With the Paisley side already a goal down, their chances of getting back in the game all but ended when the 22-year-old received his second yellow card in the 56th minute.
Wasn’t impressed with decision
Goodwin wasn’t impressed with the decision from referee Steven McLean to send the player off.
“The sending-off for me is another poor decision. The first one (yellow card) is borderline for me. There hasn’t been a tackle in the game the whole first-half” he said.
“Cammy makes a decent tackle, I think. He gets plenty on the ball, but then you could argue maybe his trailing leg catches the midfielder. Certainly no malice in it.
“And then the second one is a mistake as far as I’m concerned. Cammy clearly wins the ball, the ball changes direction. But for whatever reason Steven McLean deems it worthy of a second yellow card. So, that’s where we lose the game in the end, poor decisions from the official” he concluded.
Goodwin is at least happier that St Mirren won their appeal against the over the defeats they were handed down following Covid-19 regulation breaches.
“I think common sense has finally prevailed. It took a long time to get there. I have to give credit to my own club for fighting so hard to get the justice. I think it is the right decision for everybody. 99% of the people I’ve spoken to, the good football people I’ve spoken to, all agree with the decision” he said.
