Brewster saw yellow after a challenge with Wolves left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri, as United lost 1-0 and were officially relegated from the Premier League.
But reruns suggested Brewster was the victim of the tackle, rather than the aggressor, as young Frenchman Ait-Nouri appeared to go over the ball and catch Brewster.
VAR Chris Kavanagh verified the incident and did not advise referee Rob Jones to change the decision or take a look at the field monitor, so Brewster’s reservation stood.
But, according to former Premier League referee Halsey, the ex-Liverpool youngster could have suffered much worse.
“For once there was a real lack of Premier League talking points this weekend, in terms of officials’ decisions,” Halsey wrote in his column for CaughtOffside.
“Don’t get me started in the Super League!”
However, in the Wolves vs Sheffield United game on Saturday, Wolves Rayan Ait-Nouri’s No.3 challenge over Rhian Brewster in my opinion deserved a red card. He was a potential leg breaker.
“Referee Robert Jones cautioned Brewster for a mediocre challenge and not Ait-Nouri, and while you might say it was a warning, the challenge was not from Brewster but from him. .
“It was a serious and obvious mistake by the official, or a red card. At the very least, the VAR should have advised Jones to take a look at the field-side monitor.
