The FA are said to have written to Liverpool to get their interpretations of Constantine Hatzidakis’ half-time altercation with Andy Robertson during Sunday’s draw with Arsenal.

Football Insider have reported that there were “angry scenes” in the home dressing room following the incident and that Robertson, along with some of his colleagues, has been asked for his view on the clash.

The assistant referee was unfortunately hounded outside his home in south London earlier today and has been quoted in the Daily Mail as saying: “Whatever happens, happens. There is nothing more I can say at the moment. I can’t talk about what happened.”
