Robert Snodgrass is a diver
There was a crazy match at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday, as Hull and Crystal Palace played out a maddening 3-3 draw which failed to help either side’s relegation problems.
Hull broke the deadlock in the 27th minute in a hugely controversial moment, as Tigers forward Robert Snodgrass fell in the Palace box, the ref bought the dive, and the Scottish international picked himself up to convert from the spot.
It was clear that Snodgrass hadn’t been fouled in the box by Eagles defender Scott Dann, yet the Hull striker had no problem in conning the official at the time.
After the match however, Snodgrass has said sorry.
Turns to social media
Holding his hands up high, the Hull forward admitted it wasn’t a penalty, but he tried to explain why he fell to the floor.
Some fans appalled Snodgrass for his apology, while others used the tweet as a way of lampooning Hull’s star player.
See all the tweets below.
Apologies from my end it was never a penalty, but genuinely thought defender was going to slide, so tried to ride the tackle

@robsnodgrass7 would have slightly more respect if you had told the ref rather than cheat and tweet!!
