Kasper Schmeichel Slammed For Furious Rant At Referee Michael Oliver After Liverpool Defeat

Kasper Schmeichel Slammed For Furious Rant At Referee Michael Oliver After Liverpool Defeat

Kasper Schmeichel has been branded as "salty" following his furious rant at Michael Oliver after Leicester City's 4-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Schmeichel unleashed a tirade of verbal abuse at Olivier who awarded Liverpool a penalty in the second half of their Boxing Day fixture.

With Liverpool leading 1-nil, Oliver pointed to the spot after Caglar Soyuncu handled the ball inside the box. James Milner then converted the penalty and the visitors scored another two goals to win 4-0 to move 13 points clear at the top of the table.

And following the Premier League match, Schmeichel pulled no punches in his assessment of Oliver's showing.

"I think it was a bit tough," the Danish keeper said in his post-match interview. "We were in the game until the referee had to make himself a hero, and from then on we lost our composure.

"They are the best side in the world along with Manchester City. We strive to be like Manchester City and Liverpool but they are a lot further along in their journey.

"What's his name, Dermot [Gallagher], he'll be on Sky saying 'oh, it's a great decision, the referee was brave' or something like that.

"I don't know what he's supposed to do. His arm's down by his side, it's been flicked off someone at the front post, he's got less than a millisecond to react.

"He's [Oliver] desperate to give it, and once he gives it, VAR's never going to overturn it is it?"

The Leicester captain's outburst has been the subject of intense criticism on social media.
