Look carefully at the referee

I haven't seen the match that clip is from but I heard the ref let the play go on instead of blowing a freekick for a foul on Ajax and played the advantage instead as Ajax had the ball and it is claimed that this celebratory gesture is because he made the right decision and not because he was on Ajax's side. IF this is true, he shouldn't have done the gesture, though, no matter how pleased he was with himself. icon_confused.gif

I'm sure an English ref was caught doing this a couple of years back, at Anfield I believe. Strangely enough his defence was that he was pleased with himself because he'd played a good advantage. It's obviously an excuse you learn at referee school.

Anyone else remember this?

Found this on an Everton site:

* Having "impartial" referees punch the air when Gerrard scores - remember Poll?......

and then found this:

What?

I think the daft bluenose means Mike Reed who celebrated when Liverpool scored after he gave an advantage rather than blow for a free kick, he was happy with his good refereeing decision apparently.

So - it did happen, it was at Anfield, but it wasn't Poll.

Got there in the end. It was in 2000:

Referee Mike Reed has been "severely reprimanded" by the Premier League over his celebratory gesture during last weekend's clash between Liverpool and Leeds.

Reed was seen to clench his fist after Patrik Berger put Liverpool 2-1 ahead.

He has since claimed he was congratulating himself on his decision to play advantage, which led to the goal.

As a result, Reed has been removed from officiating the match between Everton and Newcastle on 19 March.

Premier League spokesman Mike Lee said: "Having considered the available information, we have issued a reprimand and a warning to Mike Reed for his actions on 5 February.

"While we understand the emotions involved, it is essential that match officials do not make gestures which could lead to misinterpretation.

"The impartiality of our officials must not be open to question.

"It does not help when public comments are made by an official while the matter is still under consideration by the League.

"Mr Reed has been warned to keep his emotions under control in future or face further action. Instead of refereeing the televised game at Everton (against Newcastle) on March 19, he is to be appointed to an alternative game.
