Millwall skipper reveals what he said to the referee after goal against Sheffield United

STEVE Morison revealed he turned to the referee after scoring against Sheffield United and said: “That’s karma.”

Morison was unhappy that David Coote had awarded a corner to the Blades, who went in front after the passage of play that resulted.

Lions skipper Morison equalised less than two minutes later when he fired in Jake Cooper’s long ball.

Morison said: “It was frustrating because it was never a corner, none of their players appealed for a corner and none of our players thought it was a corner. But it is what it is.

“I said to the ref, ‘that’s karma’ after we went straight down the other end and scored.

“I was saying to the ref there was shirt-pulling all the time, and he said, ‘if I give one I’ll have to give them all’. I replied: ‘That’s fine – give them all and it will stop happening.’ It’s very simple. If you let people get away with murder they’ll keep doing it.

“We should have been better, but it’s a sign of a good team when we’re not as good but get a point on a massive day.”

Morison also agreed with boss Neil Harris, and Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder, that Millwall should have been awarded a penalty when Jed Wallace was felled in the box by Chris Basham.

“It was a stonewall penalty,” Morison said. “Anywhere else on the pitch it’s a foul. It amazes me that something is not a foul in the penalty area but it is out of the box.”
