Tottenham’s Harry Kane has responded to Neil Warnock’s criticism and feels Joe Ralls deserved to be sent off on Saturday. Ralls was given a straight red card for a cynical 58th-minute tackle on Spurs’ Lucas Moura, with the north Londoners going on to win the game 1-0 at Wembley.
The Bluebirds have appealed the red card but the result left the Bluebirds at the foot of the Premier League table and the dismissal clearly irked veteran tactician Warnock.
Kane was vocal towards referee Mike Dean after the incident and received a yellow card himself for his actions, but Warnock felt the England striker had influenced the official’s decision, saying he was trying to “make an issue of it and get the referee to think it is worse than it is”.
The Tottenham hitman has now had his say and felt the sending off was justified.
“He’s kicked one of our players knee-height and the ref said to me that the fourth official helped him out,” he said.
“I guess managers are going to get angry, it’s part of the game. But at the end of the day their player has looked at our player and he’s kicked him higher than he ever should, so for me it was a red card and the right decision.”
