VIDEO: Mick McCarthy risks FA charge after slamming Andre Marriner after Wolves' defeat at Liverpool

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy risks an FA charge after claiming the fourth official intervened in the sending off that saw Liverpool beat Wolves 2-0 at Anfield.

McCarthy was furious, suggesting it was not a foul and that fourth official Phil Dowd may have played a part in Marriner's change of heart to eventually get the right man for the offence.

'The referee had no choice then but to send off Stephen Ward. Booking Berra was no danger for the referee, then he finds out it's the wrong man and has no choice.

'I did not feel there was much contact at the time. Seeing it later just convinced me further.

'I'm only bothered about whether someone whispered in the referee's ear what
was going on because I am not convinced the fourth official really knew initially.'
