Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths was remarkably calm after having a clear goal not given in his side's goalless Edinburgh derby draw at home to Hearts.
"I spoke to him (the referee) nicely,'' the forward said on Sky Sports 1. "I went over and asked if he had looked at (the assistant's) position. He told me the linesman was standing in line with the last defender, but I looked over and saw he was standing on edge of the 18-yard-box.''
Hibs boss Pat Fenlon said the officials had to answer for their mistake.
"I am disappointed for the players,'' he said. "It's not even close to being on the line, it's a yard over the line. It's close to touching the back of the net.
"Maybe the officials should be out answering questions. I said (to the referee) that it was in. He said if he's not sure he can't give it.''
Fenlon claimed the disallowed goal was yet further evidence of the need for goalline technology.
"In general that's the one area I would like to see change,'' he added. "It's vitally important to get it right.''
Hearts defender Andy Webster felt the visitors deserved a point.
"I thought we showed great battling qualities,'' he said. "A point is probably a fair reflection.''
The Scotland international got back to clear the ball after Griffiths' shot had come back off the bar and he added: "It's like anything, you are told to play to the whistle, nobody blew.''
