Leishman blasts match officials
Dunfermline manager Jim Leishman
Jim Leishman blamed officials for Hearts' winner
Dunfermline manager Jim Leishman slated the performance of the match officials after assistant Craig Robertson was sent to the stand as Hearts won 2-1.

"I thought some decisions were confusing and inconsistent and that is what frustrates me," he said of a match in which Andy Tod was sent off.

"Craig thought their boy went down too easily after Andrew tackled him and he was incensed.

"But he wasn't speaking to the referee or the fourth official."

Leishman insisted that Robertson's comments had been directed at Hearts coach John McGlynn.

"They are good pals. They were talking to each other in the dugout, that's all they were doing and they've got to shout because if you don't, you won't hear each other.

"You can ask John McGlynn if he was offended.

"And, at the free-kick that led to their winner, I thought Sol Bamba had won the ball.

"The same thing happens in other positions on the park and nothing is given, so that's what is inconsistent."
