Big Sam rapped for ref Riley 'riot' rage

Bolton manager Sam Allardyce has been fined £2000, severely censured and warned as to his future conduct by the Football Association after accusing referee Mike Riley of almost causing a riot.

Allardyce admitted a charge of improper conduct in relation to his comments about Riley immediately after Bolton's match against Blackburn on January 14.

The Wanderers boss watched his side battle to a 0-0 draw at Ewood Park but was incensed by the dismissal of Hidestoshi Nakata in the first half.

Allardyce said: 'He's nearly caused a riot here today when our fans decided to jump over the fence. I don't think that's caused by players, it's caused by some of the refereeing.'

Allardyce also claimed Riley was inconsistent in his treatment of Bolton.

He said: 'I see it like this. Hidetoshi Nakata committed three fouls and got sent off; Robbie Savage committed three fouls and didn't get booked, that's nothing against Robbie Savage.

'The statistics don't stand up unfortunately when Mike Riley referees us.

'Give me a minute and I will just prove what the referee has done today and what he's done in the past. He's refereed us seven times and we've had five players sent off, four in the first half.

'Those stats say it all, it's blatant inconsistency - in my opinion simply not good enough.

'The statistics speak for themselves.'
