The Estonian had just won a penalty from Hogg when he got in front of the centre-back again and threw himself to the ground 20 yards out but got a yellow card rather than the free-kick he hoped for.

Willie Collum issued his second booking when the 21-year-old, who collected the Clydesdale Bank young player of the month award, stretched to tackle Shinnie following a heavy touch and got there too late.

McCall, whose side still need a point to make sure of second place, said: "Henrik knows my opinion on that. It was a dive, he had no need to do it, and it's something we don't enjoy seeing.

"The second one was just a free-kick. That's how Henrik plays, he gives his all.

"I could tell by his reaction that he dived but he looked to be going in on goal.

"Henrik knows how we feel about it and we weren't happy with that but he's a young lad and he has to learn. He has been terrific for us this season.

"But it's a really sore one to take because when Faddy's goal went in just before half-time, I felt we could go on to win it."
