Ref Never Really Controlled The Game - Wise

Last updated : 22 January 2007 By Kevin Markey

"He took his time and unfortunately I pushed him off the pitch to get him off," Wise commented.

"I'd had enough of him, to be honest. Making gestures to the crowd. I was quite pleased he'd gone off because everyone was fed up with him.

"It took him more than four minutes to walk off anyway. How it took him four minutes, I do not know. How he (the referee) put it down to four minutes, I do not know.

"He was very poor, am I allowed to say that and not get into trouble? But he was, unfortunately, and never really controlled the game."
