Gerrard: Collum's red card decision was "an embarrassment"
The Rangers boss was angry at the decision to send off Daniel Candeias.
Steven Gerrard has slammed Willie Collum's decision to send off Daniel Candeias as "an embarrassment" and says his player did nothing to merit dismissal.
The winger, who had scored the opening goal in the 2-0 win at St Mirren, was sent off after being shown a second yellow card following Alfredo Morelos' injury-time goal.
Candeias was given his booking after shrugging off St Mirren's Anton Ferdinand when the defender put him in a headlock and appeared to try and hit him on the chin.
The Rangers star had previously been booked for leaving the field to celebrate with fans after scoring the opener.
Gerrard had no problem with that caution but said that the second booking was for nothing.
He said: "Daniel deserved his first yellow card. He was emotional and got carried away after scoring a goal.
"There was a coming together with Anton Ferdinand and he doesn't do anything other than try to get the man off."
The manager was then interrupted as footage of the incident appeared on the Simple Digital Arena media room TV and asked: "So Daniel gets a yellow card for that? Come on, lads. Be serious.
"The second yellow card is embarrassing. There is your evidence, that's what you're dealing with."
St Mirren manager Oran Kearney saw his side frustrate Rangers for the majority of the game, only to concede two goals that ensured they have taken just one point form the last 33 available.
"We're disappointed to lose the game," he said.
"The first goal is very important and if it's a shot and it went in then I'll doff my cap but if it's a cross then that's a disappointing one.
"The first goal into the last part of the game was always going to have a huge effect."
