During a heated moment in the second half of the Premier League match, Mac Allister found himself at the centre of controversy. A tackle on Ryan Christie led to the referee brandishing the dreaded red card, much to the dismay of Liverpool fans and players alike.

Liverpool Fights Back
Not one to take things lying down, Liverpool swiftly lodged an appeal against the decision. Their efforts bore fruit when an Independent Regulatory Commission reviewed the incident and decided in favour of Mac Allister. This means the talented midfielder will be back in action and available for selection when Liverpool faces Newcastle United this coming Sunday.
What This Means for Liverpool
With Mac Allister back in the squad, Liverpool’s chances of maintaining their momentum in the Premier League have received a significant boost. Fans and pundits alike will be keenly watching how this decision impacts the team’s performance in the upcoming fixtures.
