Cardiff manager Morrison: Liverpool keeper Kelleher deserved to stay on pitch

Cardiff City manager Steve Morrison had no problem with a controversial call against Liverpool in the FA Cup fourth-round on Sunday.

Wales international Mark Harris was brought down by Reds goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher, who received a yellow card despite being the last man.

But Morrison does not believe the offence warranted a red-card.

“I don’t think it was a sending-off,” he said after the 3-1 defeat. “There were too many players around. Konate was there. From my point of view, I was more frustrated Mark Harris didn’t take the ball round the goalie and go and run it into the goal. I thought that option was on.

“It could have changed the complexion (of the match).”

He added: “I think the penalty incident in the first half, if that’s outside the box it’s a free-kick so I don’t know why that should change in the box. It is what it is.

“We’ve come through it unscathed, we’ve had another three debuts, we’ve had two excellent performances from debutants and we’re in a much better place now than when we started the game.”
