Neil Warnock calls Harry Kane a t**t after sending off

Neil Warnock appeared to call Harry Kane a ‘t**t’ during Cardiff City’s defeat to Tottenham and has blamed the England captain for his role in Joe Ralls’ red card at Wembley. Ralls was given a straight red card by referee Mike Dean for a cynical foul on Lucas Moura in the 58th minute. Several Tottenham players surrounded Dean before he made the decision, while Kane immediately approached the Cardiff City midfielder. And following Ralls’ dismissal, television cameras caught Warnock shouting at Kane from the sideline: ‘Hey, Harry, f*****g well done… t**t.’

‘I thought it was a very soft one to say the least. I didn’t think it was violent conduct, I thought it was cynical. He [Dean] went for his yellow card, but the whole day there’s been busy people around him. ‘It was a group decision, people in his earphones and Mike Dean doesn’t need that because he’s a good referee. I wouldn’t be surprised if the linesman said something.”

‘It doesn’t help that there’s about 15 white shirts all haranguing him either. ‘Why not give Harry Kane a red? He went in and pushed him [Ralls] didn’t he? He doesn’t need to do that. ‘He was doing that to make an issue of it, make the referee think the challenge was worse than it actually was.

‘He plays for England, is a top player, I love him, but I don’t think you should try and get other pros sent off. He’s the England captain for goodness sake. ‘He didn’t need to do that. Just because Kane was having a poor game himself. ‘He was determined to score today because we’re the only Premier League side he’s not scored against, but I thought our centre-backs handled him well.’
