The Latics striker committed a late knee-high challenge on the Frenchman which forced him to leave the field on a stretcher, prior to Wigan securing a 2-1 win at the DW Stadium.
Taylor, who is currently out of action with injury, took to Twitter to launch a furious attack on McManaman.
"Nothing to do with the scoreline an the fact it was a red but as a footballer it's the definition of a 's**thouse tackle'," Taylor tweeted.
"Wow. Not even a yellow #baffled."
The defeat leaves the Magpies 13th in the Premier League table, six points clear of safety.
