There was a controversial decision in Saturday's top-of-the-table Championship clash between Burnley and Queens Park Rangers.

Referee Simon Hooper took the unusual step of sending off home mascot Bertie Bee.

It was reported that Bertie was not satisfied with the eyesight of the linesman.

Even political figures got involved in the discussion such as former Labour spin doctor and Burnley fan Alastair Campbell.

We are just trying to figure out how long the mascot will be suspended.
