Kean: Ref got it wrong on crucial foul
AS a late winner from Andy Carroll tipped Liverpool on to a 3-2 win at Ewood Park, Steve Kean insists a crucial decision in the run-up to the goal cost Rovers a point.
Just before Carroll's 90th minute winner, an altercation between Grant Hanley and Martin Skrtel seemingly went unnoticed by the referee; with Kean claiming Blackburn should have been awarded a free kick.
He said: "There was big decisions in the game. I think he got the sending off of the goalkeeper right and the yellow card for their sub goalkeeper - but not the foul on Hanley."
With Liverpool conceding two penalties for decisions against their goalkeepers, Blackburn were given two golden opportunities for goals.
However, the home side only managed one of the two and whilst they fought back with another goal to match the early two from Maxi Rodriguez, they must surely feel this decision cost them a point.
Kean added: "I can understand the ref's decisions and I can understand why he's given a yellow card for the goalkeeper. But I can't understand why he or the linesman didn't give the foul on Hanley when he was trying to get up."
