Football: Robbo's rage at referee system.
Malzinskas ordered off Christophe Berra and Dnipro bad boy Sergei Kornilenko for tangling after Belarus scored to reduced the Scots' lead to 2-1.
He also red-carded Paul Gallagher later for a bad lunge on Aliaksei Skverniuk.
But Rotherham defender Robertson claims the Belarus bench were talking in Russian with the Lithuanian linesman.
He said: "We can complain about the referee. When we found out he was Lithuanian a few eyebrows were raised.
"The manager says they were speaking Russian to the linesman on the touchline.
"These things aren't right. I know they are different countries but they all come from the same part of the world and that can't be right Robertson admitted his team-mates let themselves down with their indiscipline.
But he believes the Scotland youngsters will be a match for anybody if they can keep their tempers in check.
Darryl Duffy and Robertson had given the home side a comfortable half-time lead but Jamie McCunnie's own goal sparked a double sending off and stunning comeback by Belarus which was completed by strikes from Leonid Kovel and Mikhail Afanasyev.
Robertson said: "The manager is disappointed we let ourselves down. We haven't been able to keep our control and lost the plot.
"I'm disappointed because we've not really been battered in any games. We couldn't get a result but we were more than a match for them.
"It was that five-minute spell after the break that did us but we let in two scrappy goals with nine men and we should have defended better than that.
"In the last four or five games we have looked solid and have been getting towards our goal so this is a blow."
Bonhof will be without Gallagher, Berra and skipper Mark Wilson for the midweek game with Slovenia
