Liverpool star Andy Robertson picks up young mascot amid ugly Nottingham Forest scenes

Liverpool star Andy Robertson picks up young mascot amid ugly Nottingham Forest scenes

There was a lot of commotion.

A Liverpool star lifted a young mascot away from Nottingham Forest fans, who were venting their frustration at the officiating after Saturday's dramatic 1-0 defeat.

On Saturday Darwin Nunez netted a 99th-minute winner for Liverpool to edge past relegation-threatened Forest.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side fought hard throughout, but ultimately failed to defend a late corner, allowing Nunez to nod home Alexis Mac Allister's deep cross.

While the result saw Liverpool go temporarily four points clear at the Premier League summit, for Forest there was huge frustration.

Fans were particularly furious that the ball had been returned to Liverpool shortly before the winner was scored, following a stoppage due to a head injury while Nottingham Forest were in possession.

It was later confirmed that referee Paul Tierney should have given Forest the ball back minutes before the dramatic winner.

Chaotic scenes unfolded at full time, with Evangelos Marinakis, the Forest owner, even appearing pitch-side as others remonstrated with the officials. Steven Reid, a member of the Forest coaching staff, was also red-carded.

The goal sent emotions over the edge, with a video since emerging of furious Forest fans venting their frustrations in the direction of the Liverpool bench.

SPORTbible has contacted Nottingham Forest and Liverpool for comment on the incident.

"I will not comment on the referee," Forest boss Nuno said in his press conference after the game.

"Please don't insist on that, it will not be good. It will be a discussion point, for sure, in the week. I hope the decisions will be better."

"It is tough to take, I am proud of the boys. They did everything well until the last moment.

"We played a very good game, limited Liverpool, a fantastic team. They had chances, we had chances, it was a good game of football. We had clear chances and should improve. We played good but the team that are clinical get the advantage in the score.

"Our fans deserve to go home happy and they are not."
