Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has launched a scathing attack on Hearts rival Craig Levein’s call for penalties at Pittodrie.
Aberdeen won 2-0 in Saturday’s match and Levein was furious his side were not awarded any spot-kicks by referee John Beaton.
Beaton awarded the Dons a spot-kick which Sam Cosgrove converted for his second goal.
Asked about Levein’s calls for penalties, McInnes said: “Do you know what? Sometimes, that is standard with Craig and Hearts.
“They are always looking for penalties.
“It has gone from two penalties in the BBC interview and he seemingly said three penalties in here (the press room).
“The only one I can think of was (Steven) Naismith with Max Lowe when Steven MacLean got his chance.
“I’ll take you back to Tynecastle when they got two penalties. One was particularly soft and one was never a penalty.
“Hearts got more than a break that afternoon.
“Let’s make it clear. Aside anything like that, the better team won, hands down.”
