Greening claims Tottenham players admitted winner should not have stood

Fulham midfielder Jonathan Greening claims Aaron Lennon admitted that Tottenham's winner on Saturday should not have stood.

Fulham midfielder Jonathan Greening claims Aaron Lennon admitted that Tottenham's winner on Saturday should not have stood.

William Gallas was stood in an offside position as Tom Huddlestone’s shot sailed past him and into the net, leading to the flag being raised.

However, referee Mike Dean, after consulting with his assistant, proceeded to give the goal and Spurs all three points.

Greening insists that decision was farcical, with even the Spurs players unable to believe their luck.

"Most of the Tottenham players were laughing and saying 'if they give this now it's going to be a bit of a joke'," Greening said in the Fulham Chronicle.

"For one he was in an offside position and interfering with play. The linesman gave offside and I don't know why the ref tried to get involved really.

"Aaron Lennon admitted it was definitely offside, so I don't know what the referee saw."

He added: "It was an even game. We got a good goal and then were a bit sloppy to let them back into it straight away.

"They've come out strong in the second half, but at the end of the day, the referee's decision has killed us."
