McAuley was giving his marching orders after just 90 seconds by Neil Swarbrick but it was teammate Craig Dawson who made the the disputed challenge on Wilfried Bony.
“I can’t believe he’s picked the wrong player – it’s beyond me,” said Tony Pulis following the defeat at the Etihad, reports Daily Mail.
However, rather than berate the match official, Pulis said referees need to be given additional support via video technology to make the correct calls in games.
“It is no good moaning about referees. We have to find a way to help referees out I would definitely call for managers to have two calls each and every game when there is 30 seconds and they can have a video link up with people upstairs who can watch it on video”
“The clubs can make money – there are people who will make money to have their names up on scoreboards.
“It will eradicate the major decisions referees are getting wrong that actually affect games of football and we have to work hard to do that in what is the greatest league in the world. The sooner that comes in the better.”
