Smith still angry

Sunday 23 December 2001

Everton boss Walter Smith is still angry after the Football Association's decision to overturn Luis Boa Morte's red card.

Amazingly, despite video evidence that proves David Weir trod on Boa Morte, Smith is fuming that the Fulham strikers straight red was wiped off the record after an appeal.

Smith is unhappy that Boa Morte has escaped punishment, while Weir's yellow card, his second of the match, cannot be rescinded by the FA and they were without him for yesterday's 1-0 defeat at Sunderland.

Smith said: "It's amazing how we end up with a player suspended after a brawl which did not implicate any Everton player.

"David Weir got booked, for what nobody knows."
