BARRY ROBSON questioned the use of VAR at Ibrox as he saw Aberdeen slip to a narrow 1-0 defeat to Rangers on Sunday.

The Dons spurned two clear chances in the first half as Robby McCrorie made a smart save to deny Duk and the striker then scooped an effort over the bar when through on goal.

Those moments ultimately cost Robson’s side as Todd Cantwell netted from a James Tavernier corner to give Rangers all three points in the first post-split fixture.

But it was a first half flashpoint involving Duk and Connor Goldson that upset Robson as he queried why the defender wasn’t penalised for grappling on the edge of the area.

Robson said: “First half we should have scored a couple of goals, we had two brilliant chances to get a couple of goals up on Rangers. I think second half it was a poor goal from us from a set play.

“I thought Kelle had a couple of good saves first half, second half he did not have a save to make. Rangers moved the ball about as they do, we know that – we know about the financial might of the Old Firm and what they’ve got. But I thought we were structurally very good.

“We looked like we would open them up quickly at times, a bit too quick at times. On another day it could have been a lot different result. 

“You need to take them wherever you are, not just coming here. But it’s probably more important to take them here. You have those two unbelievable chances in the first half – they don’t come much better than one on one chances.

“And then obviously the first half is it a penalty or a free kick outside as well, I don’t know? It was one or the others. Where was VAR, anyone see it? Where was it? I don’t know. Was it in the building today, I am being serious? 

“Well, where was VAR then? What is the point of all of us speaking? Because none of us know, do we. I don’t know.”
