Birmingham City Manager Alex McLeish Blast Liverpool Striker Ngog


Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish believes the incident involving young Liverpool striker David Ngog to win a penalty late in the second half was shameful.

The French forward went down in the area while under slight pressure from Blues skipper Lee Carsley and the referee pointed to the spot much to the dismay of Birmingham players, officials and fans as they were leading 2-1 at the time.

Reds captain Steven Gerrard converted from the spot to take a share of the points and Birmingham were left ruing a missed opportunity.

McLeish told reporters after the game that the incedent is a shame for the game.

The manager added that Ngog conned the referee and got his team a penalty.

He went on to say that Peter Walton is a good referee but he got the decision wrong.

McLeish also said that if it had not been for the penalty, Birmingham could have gone on and win the match.
