It was as clear a red card offence as you’ll see all season.

Just because Scottish referees prefer to let the play (fouling) flow and rarely issue a straight red card doesn’t come into play. The same laws apply from the first whistle till the last.

When sees an opportunity and rarely fails to take it with Jeremie Frimpong a previous victim.

David Turnbull was in space, facing goal, with Power racing in. As the ball got touched to the side Power launched himself at his opponent producing a snapping action with his right foot for extra effect.

Three weeks earlier escaped without a card for a similar attack on Callum McGregor, yesterday, in this instance Willie Collum applied the rules.

Later, on Radio the incident was a hot topic with Rae putting up a case that it should only have been a booking.

On that basis it would require a near amputation to warrant a red card in the mind of the former and Dundee manager.
