Pique had to be restrained when arguing with referee Mateu Lahoz
Barcelona will feel like they were hard done by when it came to the refereeing calls during their 1-1 draw with Las Palmas, and Gerard Pique's anger seemed emblematic of their discontent.
A series of decisions failed to go their way, such as the failure of Antonio Mateu Lahoz to dismiss goalkeeper Leandro Chichizola for a blatant handball outside the box as well as the awarding of Los Amarillos a penalty.
At the full-time whistle, Pique came off his spot on the bench to protest the referee's decisions and had to be hauled back by Barcelona delegate Carles Naval.
With a five point lead at the top, the Catalans must put their dismay behind them and focus immediately on Sunday's game against second-placed Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou.
