Referee Jon Moss has record cross TRASHED days after retirement following Huddersfield Championship play-off controversy
FORMER referee Jon Moss allegedly received death threats as well as had the front of his Vinyl Whistle record store damaged.
Moss came under fire for his performance in Sunday's Championship play-off final between Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town.
Huddersfield felt hard done by after seeing two penalty appeals be waived away by Moss.
Harry Toffolo was clipped inside the area but was booked for diving.
Then Lewis O'Brien later went down under the challenge of Max Lowe and a penalty wasn't awarded.
Forest went on to win the final 1-0 returning to the top flight of English football since their 1999 relegation.

But it appears some have taking it a step too far with Moss allegedly receiving death threats and having the front of his Leeds record store damaged.
According to the Daily Star, police visited Moss' record store to speak to him and they have launched an investigation into alleged death threats.
The report states that Moss believes the death threats are related to the abuse he received from Town fans after refereeing his final match.
The 51-year-old retired ref will now take up a new role as a Select Group 1 Manager at the PGMOL ahead of next season.
