Stephen Glass hit out at John Beaton over the Ibrox penalty that robbed Aberdeen of two points at Ibrox.

The Dons had weathered most of the Ibrox storm with their 2-1 lead intact when a ball was played towards Fashion Sakala in the 81st minute.

Realising that he was unlikely to score the Ibrox substitute fell to the ground with Beaton obliging by pointing to the spot. Tav pen did the rest.

Before Saturday Aberdeen were on a run of 10 matches without a win, Beaton’s decision denied them back-to-back wins over Hibs and Sevco.

Speaking to The Sun, Glass said:

It is not a penalty kick. It is a little bit of coming together, but it isn’t a penalty kick. It’s massively frustrating, the boys put in a performance like that, the work rate, effort and Rangers have a brilliant group of players, but we get undone with that and it is very disappointing.

I am happy, but I think we could have walked away with more. There was obviously an incident with a penalty kick which doesn’t look like a penalty kick to me.

Other than that I thought we were brilliant defensively and carried a threat as well. I am happy to come away with a point if you had given me that at the start of the day, but I am pretty disappointed with the way it has ended.

I don’t get involved with criticising referees, I get involved a bit at the side because you get emotional, but I was interested in Robbie Neilson’s comments last week and I am disappointed.

On Sunday Nick Walsh will referee Sevco’s visit to Motherwell, on Saturday Beaton will be getting a match fee from St Mirren v Dundee.
