(Video) Ralf Rangnick slates referee after Champions League blow

The end of the road for Manchester United in Europe.

The Reds lost against Atletico Madrid at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, in what was a model away performance from Diego Simeone’s side, involving lots of dirty tactics and favourable decisions from the referee.

A goal from Renan Lodi won the tie for the Spanish champions, but it was the referee who stole the show on the night. He made a number of questionable decisions throughout the game.

United were denied a free kick for a foul on Anthony Elanga in the build-up to Lodi’s goal. The referee waved play on much to everyone’s disbelief in the stadium.

It honestly feels like we got shafted on the night, especially after a convincing first half display.

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick complained about a number of decisions at full-time but he also commented on how the players were unable to convert that first-half energy into goals.

“Some curious refereeing decisions, four minutes of extra-time was just a joke,” he told Des Kelly after the match.
