Even Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has admitted that Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe didn’t deserve to be sent off in the FA Cup clash at the weekend.

The 20-year-old was handed a red card for a challenge to Sean Longstaff during the Gunners 2 – 0 victory over The Magpies.

And Bruce thinks it was a “cruel” decision towards Arsenal man as the player deserved to stay on the pitch.

“I have to be brutally honest,” he said. “I didn’t think it was a red card at the time.

“You can say it’s not quite going for us, when he gets the red card rescinded and then sticks the ball away, which is cruel.”
