Premier League ref Styles hangs up his whistle

Rob Styles, one of the most controversial referees to officiate in the Premier League over the past decade, has decided to resign from the game. Former Premier League referee Graham Poll said he was "saddened but not surprised" by the decision.

Poll, who himself retired from officiating in the Premier League in 2007, told the Daily Mail: "He cared deeply about his refereeing, dedicating himself to serving the game he loves. However, the fact that the majority of the football-watching public will merely shrug their shoulders in indifference at this news or say 'Good' proves the lack of understanding of the modern referee."
