Motherwell manager unhappy being recorded by fans after being sent to the stands [Video]
Aberdeen recorded their biggest win of the season on Wednesday night after beating Motherwell 7-2. Adam Rooney, among the scorers, netted a hat-trick.
But a funny story developed 15 minutes into the second half when Motherwell manager Mark McGhee got into an argument with fourth official John McKendrick which eventually saw him sent to the stands by the referee.
After the game, McGhee questioned the attitude of the fourth official. He then claimed that he was sent to the stands for simply making jokes about some of the referee’s decisions.
“I had no feelings about getting involved. I was sitting on the bench making a couple of jokes about certain decisions and he reacted right away.
“It was absolutely diabolical, his attitude. I’m absolutely horrified by it.”
McGhee was also angered by a group of fans that recorded his trek from the sideline to the stands.
