Leicester City supporters have taken to Twitter to express their anger towards Sol Bamba’s winner vs Brighton and Hove Albion.
The 33-year-old scored in the 90th and took off his shirt during the celebration but was not shown a yellow card.
Demarai Gray was booked for the same offence last weekend to reveal a tribute to the late Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
Bamba’s controversial goal vs Brighton
The FA and Martin Atkinson have been targeted on Twitter following Cardiff’s 2-1 win over Brighton.
Bamba’s late goal for the Bluebirds secured them a vital three points, however, the goal was riddled with controversy.
Firstly, the defender was accused of being offside when heading home.
Then during the pandemonium of the celebrations, he removed his shirt but was not carded.
Bamba told Sky Sports:
“The referee asked me if I took my shirt off and I said no.”
Last weekend, Gray was controversially booked for celebrating a goal and revealing a shirt with a tribute to the former Leicester owner.
Double standards: Martin Atkinson slated for perfomance
@plreferees how come Demarai Gray got booked last week for showing a message under his shirt but Sol Bamba did not today for removing his shirt? Where is the consistency? Can see why fans get so annoyed by the quality of refereeing

Bamba didn’t even get booked for taking his shirt off @FA Atkinson has to be dropped for that performance 😂 #bhafc

@FA @premierleague will you give bamba a caution for taking his shirt off or will you take away grays booking for Leicester?

If I was that bad in my job, my boss would have a word. Review the game and pull the officials in the office @FA clear offsides, incorrect calls and failure to follow the rules with cards (especially after Leicester last week) #pooronceagain

@FA @premierleague one of you make a statement as to why Atkinson didn’t book Bamba today when Leicester and City were told “no exceptions will be made”. No doubt you won’t answer because refs are mollycoddled and protected.

Any idea why Sol Bamba wasn’t booked for taking his shirt of when celebrating his goal? @FA #DemaraiGray

Any chance of the referee’s assistant flagging for offside when Sol Bamba scored? Andy Gray can’t believe it! #beINPL #CARBHA pic.twitter.com/AxS12WGvDJ
