LEEDS manager Neil Warnock has criticised Chelsea’s decision to file a complaint against referee Mark Clattenburg.

Police are investigating whether he used “inappropriate language” to two of their players during the game at Stamford Bridge. Police are now investigating.

Warnock said: “I’m disgusted at what has gone on. We ask referees to deal with it and man-manage and that’s what he does. If Chelsea had won there would not have been a complaint. If it is proved wrong whatever Chelsea players alleged, I hope they get done.”

A steward was injured following Javier Hernandez’s winning goal for United.

Leeds have been no strangers to trouble, with one of their fans last week jailed for attacking Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Chris Kirkland.

Leeds supporters were branded “vile animals” by Wednesday boss Dave Jones for some of the chants and Warnock wants the state of football to be changed.

“The chanting has come back, in the Wednesday game they were chanting about everybody. Chants of Istanbul (where two Leeds fans were murdered) and everyone else. It is getting a bigger situation at grounds. A lot of these are grown men in suits with kids. It’s getting worse and I don’t know what the answer is. When you see the hatred in some of the supporters’ faces, you can’t ask a steward to go and climb in the middle of them and bring somebody out, they would get killed.”
