io Ferdinand has slammed the “disgraceful” decision to overturn the award of a West Brom penalty during Saturday evening’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.

“It’s a disgraceful decision, he got it right first time,” he said of the West Brom penalty incident.

The struggling Baggies were given a spot-kick almost immediately after the restart at Old Trafford after impressive Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher appeared to be fouled by Bruno Fernandes inside the box.

Both Baggies boss Slaven Bilic and United counterpart Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed their frustration with the officials after the full-time whistle, while Red Devils legend Ferdinand - covering the match as a pundit on BT Sport - heavily criticised Coote’s decision-making.

West Brom’s misery was compounded just 10 minutes later, when, after a Darnell Furlong handball, Fernandes stepped up to net what proved to be the winning goal from the spot at the second attempt after former United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone had saved his first effort but was spotted coming some way off his line by the VAR, leading to a re-take.

“The more you look at it, the more it’s a pen.”

However, referee David Coote then overruled his own decision after watching the incident back on the pitchside monitor, deciding that the Portuguese got a touch on the ball during his risky challenge.
