Kerr Young was given his marching orders during the Scottish League One clash and six other players were shown yellow cards, but the Gers boss has insinuated that the referee was too lenient.
"It certainly was a bruising encounter. I haven't seen some of the challenges again yet but I'm looking forward to doing that," he told the club's website. "My initial reaction was there certainly could have been at least one red card before the second-half sending-off.
"Dunfermline were up for the game and we knew they would be because Jim's teams are always well organised, well drilled and they certainly don't lacking fighting spirit.
"The referee referees the game the way he sees fit. I would probably have refereed it a little bit differently today. Then again, he might have managed Rangers a little differently as well."
