FURIOUS Brentford boss Uwe Rosler has accused Tranmere defender Adam Dugdale of spitting at Will Grigg during Saturday's victory at Prenton Park.
The Bees chief alleges the on-loan Crewe centre-back (pictured) gobbed on the Northern Ireland striker during the second-half of the 4-3 win in Birkenhead.
Dutch legend Frank Rijkaard spat at West Germany's Rudi Voller in a high-profile case during the 1990 World Cup.
And Rosler believes Dugdale is also guilty of launching a saliva bomb at the Brentford star.
He said: “We looked at the footage and their centre-half Dugdale did what Frank Rijkaard did to Rudi Voller.
“I think that's the worst thing that can happen to a professional footballer on the field.
“I wouldn't mind a mistimed tackle, but what he did was out of order.
“I haven't seen that in English football very often, so to see that was shocking.
“I knew it must have been something extraordinary for Will to react like that.
“After studying the footage it's clear he did a Rijkaard. He should be ashamed of his behaviour.
“We won't go to try and get him punished. The referee and his assistants missed it, but from our side we won't take any action.
“However, if we're asked for footage we will provide it.”
Dugdale has denied spitting at Grigg, but Rovers manager Ronnie Moore has vowed to take action if his player is guilty.
“I can't condone that,” he said. “If I had seen that he had done it he would've been fined, but he says he hasn't.”
