Ayr boss sees red over blunder refs.

Byline: ALAN MARSHALL sport@dailyrecord.co.uk

AYR boss Ian McCall has revealed he had a heart to heart with referees' chief John Fleming over decisions against his side.

The Somerset gaffer was raging at bad calls against his men in two recent games and has called for changes to the rules on appeals for yellow cards for diving.

He said: "At Raith, Chris Higgins was sent off for a second yellow but the video showed their player had carried out a piece of simulation.

But if you get booked for diving and it is shown you didn't, you can appeal but if you see yellow when an opponent has dived you can't.

"Against Alloa we made it 2-2 then the referee gave them a penalty after the ball hit Jamie Adams' head.

"I told John we could do with fewer mistakes and a rule change that would have let Chris play against Alloa."
