Surely if this idiot ref Marriner has sent off the wrong player, we can demand a replay? #CFCvAFC— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 22, 2014
Arsenal fan, TV celebrity and broadcaster Piers Morgan was as shocked as every other Arsenal supporter when Kieran Gibbs was sent off for a handball against Chelsea earlier.
It was a complete howler from Andre Marriner and Morgan has seemingly questioned the ethics behind the decision suggesting that it’s not completely unreasonable for his club to demand a replay.
Marriner reportedly admitted at half-time that he got the decision wrong, which means Gibbs could see his red card overturned and awarded to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, the actual culprit of the handball which led to the decision.
Morgan is well known for his up front and strong views which he often Tweets about on Twitter but whether the Premier League will make an exception for him in this case is doubtful to say the least!
