Martin O'Neill reckons Sheffield United boss Paul Heckingbottom should "rein it in" rather than let rip at the refs - because they have a hard enough job as it is.Heckingbottom is facing FA sanctions after an incredible rant following his side's defeat to Spurs where he blasted whistler Peter Bankes for a "bonkers" and "appalling" performance.

His side led 1-0 through Gustavo Hamer's second half strike but 12 minutes of stoppage time, added on after multiple United players were booked for timewasting, allowed Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski to seal a dramatic win for Ange Postecoglou's team.Oli McBurnie was sent off deep into added time to add insult to injury and Heckinbottom let rip, saying modern referees "don't know what they're doing" and accusing them of "not understanding the game." But O'Neill doesn't buy it as the former Celtic boss believes he should have dialled his anger back.He said on talkSPORT: "I do believe he should've reined it in.

It's difficult sometimes, when you're holding onto a lead in the game, you've seen the fourth official stick up the 12 extra minutes and you're trying to hold on.

You've been defending for some considerable time, you've scored on the break. You're thinking 'Can we run this down'?"And then on the back of all that, McBurnie is sent off for a second yellow card, that doesn't help.
