John Hughes slams penalty decision after loss at St Mirren

Sun 28 February 2021 | 5:12

Ross County boss John Hughes was furious after the 1-0 loss against St Mirren and felt a poor decision from referee Greg Aitken cost them.

The Staggies lost 1-0 in Paisley with the game’s flashpoint coming nine minutes from time when

Collin Quaner

went to the ground under minimal contact from

Leo Hjelde

.

However, referee

Aitken

awarded a penalty which was converted by

Jamie McGrath

.

Hughes

felt Quaner had dived and was not at all happy with the referee’s decision.

He said

: “We’re bitterly disappointed. With what’s at stake and boys playing for livelihoods, you’re wanting these decisions to be correct.

“Who would be a ref? But he gets paid and he needs to make it spot on. I wish it was my team getting that award. If that’s where the game has gone maybe we’re too honest as a team.

“Once the ref sees it he’ll know he’s been conned so it’s up to the authorities to do something about that.”
