No Premiership this weekend for ref Clattenburg

Mark Clattenburg will not be refereeing a Premier League match this weekend after his controversial display in the Merseyside derby.

The official was criticised for his handling of the game between Everton and Liverpool at Goodison Park on Saturday.

And the Professional Game Match Board have decided Clattenburg will not take charge of a top flight game this weekend.

The Tyne and Wear official incurred the wrath of Toffees manager David Moyes after he sent off Tony Hibbert for bringing down Steven Gerrard in the box.

Dirk Kuyt scored the penalty and 10 minutes later infuriated home fans and players for an aerial lunge at Everton's Phil Neville which only incurred a yellow card.

It meant Kuyt was still on the pitch and available to take the last-minute penalty which gave Liverpool a 2-1 victory.
