Darren Ferguson said he may report referee Trevor Kettle to the FA after complaining about the language the official used to his players during the 3-2 win over Barnet.

Kettle booked Rovers midfielder Tommy Rowe for dissent and Andy Williams for diving.

“I have to say about the referee, and normally I wouldn’t do it, the behaviour and language he was using against my players was out of order,” said Ferguson afer the game.

“Some of the stuff that apparently he’s been saying, I don’t know what’s going on there. I’ll have to get to the bottom of that.

“Certainly one of my two players [that were booked] is not happy at the way they were spoken to. If it was the other way round it would have been a red card, simple as that.

“If what my players is saying is true - and I can’t see why they would not tell the truth - I’m disappointed in that.

“I’m surprised, he’s experienced. I don’t normally want to criticise referees to media people but I can’t let that one go. I can’t tolerate behaviour like that.”
