both filthy tackles, clearly out to stop him from playing. the refs must do better to allow creative players to play. He was clearly not trying to win freekicks or deceive the ref with those.

I didn't see this game, but I saw the Liverpool game at the weekend. Frankly, I thought half of their tackles were GBH - Milner a prime culprit. When he is put out to grass, he can go up to Scotland for a few more years...

I'm surprised he could still play on after the first one. Right in front of the ref as well, he should be punished for not handing out a red.

You know a lot of Scots don't like the English, seems like that referee was one of them.

I'm assuming he is a Scot as he's officiating in the Scottish league.

Ok, now having seen those tackles, I advise Milner to take up holy orders rather than go to Scotland....

Obviously we don't want him to get hurt but it's not a bad thing to be targeted as a good player in terms of character building imo. It'll toughen the lad up. Agree the ref's need to protect the players better.

They are hacking him down because in some of the earlier matches he has been ripping people to shreds with his skill.

Same thing happened to Ronaldo, when he 1st arrived.

Players just hate the embassrassment.

He'll have to tough it out to stay the course.

Comparing him to Ronaldo is one hell of a compliment and I agree with you because of the level of football he is playing.

In a country where controlling a ball with your first touch is seen as showing off, they must think he's Dennis Rodman.

The guy should have got sent off after 14 seconds, it was a shocking tackle.

That first one is horrendous. The Scottish FA should give that guy a 3 match ban minimum. That would help stop it happening.

Not if one of the tackles puts him in a wheelchair!

This is the sort of stuff the kid is doing on loan @ Rangers.

They'll be lining up to take lumps out of him, if he continues roasting fellow pros.
