Former Premier League referee, Keith Hackett has lambasted referee Paul Tierney for not sending off Harry Kane during Tottenham’s 2-2 with Liverpool on Sunday.

He said the England striker does not deserve to remain on the pitch after his ‘reckless’ tackle on Liverpool’s Andy Robertson.

Kane was fortunate to remain in the game following his studs-up challenge on Liverpool’s left-back in the first half.

Referee Tierney only showed the England captain a yellow card for the incident, which was not deemed as a clear and obvious error by VAR.

Then later on in the game, Tierney gave Robertson a red card for his swipe on Tottenham full-back Emerson Royal.

But Hackett, who is the former head of the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), believes Kane should have also been sent off.

“How can Harry Kane stay on the pitch after that reckless challenge that endangered the safety of an opponent?’ Hackett wrote on Twitter.

“Excessive force. Serious foul play challenge, red card, another refereeing error.

“It is a lack of accountability when big errors are made. No apology, no explanation, carry on boys you can do what you want!

“How can he defend a player who is out of control, uses excessive force? Why doesn’t VAR suggest a look at the monitor to help the referee? That’s what it is there for.

“VAR rightly advises referee Tierney to review the red card for Robertson of Liverpool who is correctly sent off. Why didn’t VAR do the same on the Kane challenge? Both were red card offences.”
