St Johnstone midfielder Murray Davidson felt they should have had two penalties at Pittodrie, never mind the one that got away.
Saints thought they were on course for a brilliant victory over Aberdeen when referee Steven McLean pointed to the spot with the scoreline at 1-1.
Dons defender Andrew Considine was, initially, ruled to have fouled Matty Kennedy inside the box.
Referee Steven McLean pointed to the spot but then decided to consult standside assistant Graeme Stewart. After a short discussion, McLean overturned his own decision and it was no penalty.
Also, Davidson felt he was shoved by Aberdeen’s Sam Cosgrove inside the area later in the game but, despite a determined appeal by the Saints player, play was waved on.
Davidson said: “That’s the first time in my career that I’ve seen a penalty given and then overturned.
“Steven McLean has given it but then he’s gone to his assistant and has overturned it.
“They have come to the decision – whether it’s right or wrong – and it’s extremely frustrating.
“Matty says there was contact.
“It maybe was not a great deal but when you are running at pace the slightest touch can put you over.
“I have no doubt that Matty’s tried to buy a penalty because he’s felt contact. We know the rest.
“He’s gone against his initial decision.
“He told me he got the decision right but I don’t know how he can go from giving the penalty to saying two minutes later after speaking to his linesman that he was right not to give it.
“It’s frustrating because we were well on top.”
As for his own “penalty” Davidson was adamant.
He added: “What I do know is there was a cross and I was going to head the ball and there was a push on my back.
“I would say that 100% there was contact on me and I thought it was a penalty.
“It seemed like Steven McLean was not interested and it was frustrating.
“He said there was not enough contact.
“I asked him 30 questions during the game but I didn’t get any answers.
“I don’t think I am his favourite player in the league, although I do get on well with him and I do have a laugh with him.
“If it (the challenge) was outside the box then it’s a freekick all day long.”
