Watch: Rafa Benitez Rages At Referee After Controversial Last-Gasp Goal

Wolves rescued a draw from the clutches of defeat with a last-minute controversial goal that left Newcastle United boss Rafael Benítez raging.

The away side took the lead early in the second half thanks to an Isaac Hayden goal and looked set to see out a tense 1-0 win until the final moments. The referee had added on four minutes. With the clock ticking down towards the 95th minute, a long goal into the box saw Willy Boly rise high and head home.

However, questions were raised over the centre-half's contact with goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka. Speaking on Sky Sports, Carragher claimed that it was not a foul "his hands are resting on the goalkeepers' shoulders" and that "it is a contact sport, you can't forget that. You can touch a goalkeeper."

Regardless, it was an incident that left Benitez absolutely furious.
