Linn: Ref made us pay the penalty.


BRASSED-OFF Bobby Linn reckons ref Barry Cook's controversial penalty decision ruined his golden moment at Ibrox.

The Arbroath striker scored a tremendous second goal for his team and put them on course for a memorable result against Rangers.

Although sub David Templeton levelled, Linn and his team were still set for a point before Cook pointed to the spot when Jon Daly went to ground under a challenge from left-back Colin Hamilton.

Linn reckons Daly was never reaching Andrew Little's cross and admits the award took away his delight at scoring.

He said: "The boys are gutted. At the end, we also had one cleared off the line and we deserved a lot more from the game.

"If the Rangers players are honest, they will think we deserved something from it too.

"I come from a Celtic background, so it was even sweeter for me to score at Ibrox.

"You are up against big Bilel Mohsni and Lee McCulloch and they are good players who make it tough for you, so I was delighted to be able to get away from them and slot it past Cammy Bell.

"But ultimately, it has meant nothing in the end.

"We don't think it was a penalty. Daly seemed miles away from the ball but the ref has given it.

"With our chance at the end, I took the corner and I saw it was cleared off the line. I was pleading for someone to just throw their body at it to try and get it in.

"To go to Ibrox and create chances against Rangers is something we can be proud of."
