HULL CITY MIDFIELDER Robert Snodgrass apologised for his role in a controversial penalty award after his side drew 3-3 at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Snodgrass went to ground with Scott Dann in close attention and the Scotland international converted the subsequent spot-kick himself, with under-fire Palace manager Alan Pardew describing the penalty as “fabricated”.

The Scotland international tweeted an explanation of the incident, writing: “Apologies from my end it was never a penalty, but genuinely thought defender was going to slide, so tried to ride the tackle.”

Snodgrass also conceded a penalty himself in a pulsating six-goal encounter at the KCOM Stadium, with former Hull striker Fraizer Campbell scoring a late equaliser to earn a point for Palace.
