Neil Warnock has come clean on what he really said to Harry Kane after his apparent F-word rant was caught in camera.
Eagle-eyed football fans spotted a furious tirade from the Cardiff City boss after accusing the Tottenham striker of getting Bluebirds midfielder Joe Ralls sent off.
An incensed Kane sprinted towards referee Mike Dean after Ralls clattered into Lucas Moura.
Ralls was shown a straight red card and Kane copped Warnock’s ire with fans believing he said: "F****** well done, Harry. T***."
However veteran boss Warnock playfully insisted that he said something far more innocent.
Asked if he called Kane a "T***", Warnock replied: "I wouldn’t say that would I.
"It would be twit, wouldn’t it?"
But with Cardiff ace Ralls now facing a three-match suspension, Warnock was not happy with how he saw Kane’s role in the dismissal.
"I don’t think he needs to do that," said Warnock after Eric Dier’s goal sealed a 1-0 win for Spurs at Wembley.
"He plays for England, I love him. I think he’s a tremendous player. But I don”t think you try to get other pros sent off, just because he’s had a poor game and Spurs were having a poor game – he shouldn’t take it out in us.
"He’s doing that to make an issue of it to make the referee think it’s worse than what it is.
"An England player going off like that, dear me. He went straight in and pushed him, so why not give him a red?"
Cardiff remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table after failing to register a single win in eight games.
