(Reuters) – Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce has called for a new review of handball rules after striker Callum Wilson’s late goal was scored in the Premier League’s 1-1 draw at Liverpool on Saturday .

Liverpool scored inside three minutes thanks to Mohamed Salah, but Newcastle believed they had equalized in the stoppage time when Wilson packed the ball into the net after crossing one-on-one against goalkeeper Alisson.

But the goal was disallowed following intervention by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) when the ball hit Wilson’s elbow at close range after an Alisson save.

Newcastle shook up disappointment at the disallowed goal and equalized in the dying seconds of the game thanks to Joe Willock to claim a point.

“We’re going to have to look at these crazy rules. You think ‘what a ridiculous decision’. We’re taking the letter of the law too literally. Do we want a situation of players running at full speed, arms behind their backs , it’s ridiculous.

It is not the fault of the VAR, it is the fault of the rules but the goal should not be chalked. This is something we need to address. Maybe I was sitting here talking about a 2-1 win. “

Football executive IFAB last month changed the laws of the game effective July 1 so that accidental handballs leading to a teammate’s score are no longer penalized.

However, the changed rules would not have affected the outcome of Saturday’s game, as goals scored directly from the arm or hand or immediately after will continue to be excluded, even if accidental.
