NEIL Warnock blasted referee Michael Oliver after QPR snatched a last-gasp point against Aston Villa.
Richard Dunne's stoppage-time own goal earned Rangers a deserved point after Barry Bannan had given the visitors the lead from the spot following a controversial penalty decision.
Warnock was fuming with Oliver after Armand Traore was penalised for a push on Gabriel Agbonlahor, while the hosts were denied two penalties following handballs by Alan Hutton.
And the Rangers boss made his feelings plain to the man in black after the game.
He said: "It's disappointing to be talking about referees - there's nothing to referee in that game. Not one Aston Villa supporter appeals for a penalty. I bet there are 25,000 more tugs on that pitch.
"Referees should be seen and not heard but it takes away from our performance - I thought we were superb.
Talking about QPR's penalty appeals, Warnock added: "How has the linesman not seen that? He deliberately handballs it.
"And the second one, we're told that if you raise your hands it's a handball. He's raised his hands against Tommy Smith.
"But the first one is embarrassing. How that cannot be given a penalty...he can't even say he's in a bad position.
"My boys deserve better than that. Traore's penalty, come on, I've never seen anything like that. He blows on him. He wants to give the penalty and it's wrong."
