Harry Redknapp was far from amused on Boxing Day after Chris Foy's decision to allow West Brom's winning goal to stand.

Referee Foy was happy for the goal to be given, despite Marc-Antoine Fortune evidently preventing Robert Green from clearing a high ball, which resulted in the England man clawing the ball into his own net as a result.

Despite a late QPR fightback, the Baggies held on to claim three precious points at Loftus Road and leave Redknapp mulling over a miserable Christmas.  

The decision sparked criticism from the Hoops boss, who didn't pull any punches in determining the call "scandalous" as his side slumped back to the foot of the Premier League table.
