SFA Should Punish Rangers For Cup Final Incident
The SFA should throw the book at Rangers defender Carlos Cuellar this week, after his assault on Christian Kalvenes during the 2nd half of the Scottish League Cup final at Hampden on Sunday.
Rangers undeservedly lifted the trophy 3-2 on penalty kicks, but the game would have been done and dusted if referee Kenny Clark had awarded United a 53rd minute penalty kick after Cuellar`s disgraceful attack on Kalvenes.
Already leading 1-0 after a 1st half opener from Noel Hunt, United looked to be in control of the match when Kalvenes put Cuellar under pressure inside the Rangers penalty area.
Unbelievably, referee Kenny Clark waved play on, after Cuellar grabbed the United defender by the throat and pushed him to the ground.
The incident is unlikely to be mentioned in the referee`s report, so the SFA will be under pressure this week to review the incident and take action against the Rangers player.
The BBC cameras got a clear view of the incident, which was shown on the news as one of the major talking points during the match.
If the SFA don`t take action, then Strathclyde Police should get involved, because it was a disgrace act by Cuellar, which clearly deserves some sort of punishment!
