Madars Razma has revealed Michael van Gerwen accused him of “clicking” his darts during their clash in the PDC Super Series on Sunday.
Razma came up against Van Gerwen in the Quarter-Finals of Players Championship Four in Bolton and the pair exchanged words midway through the match.
With Razma leading 2-0, Van Gerwen initiated a frosty exchange between the two, suggesting the Latvian was making noise whilst the Dutchman was at the oche.
The incident proved to be a turning point as the world number two went on to reel off six consecutive legs to close out a 6-2 victory for a place in the Semi-Finals – where he was eventually beaten 7-3 by Australia’s Damon Heta.
Razma took to social media on Monday to offer his version of events and deny any form of gamesmanship.
He tweeted: “A few people asked me about my incident with MVG yesterday.
“I’m sorry, but I didn’t see any problem. He said I was clicking my darts.
“If I did it, then it wasn’t special and I’m sorry again! Just it’s ridiculous to hear it from the one of the best players in the world!
“But I would be happy to see back yellow-black lines, because there are players who have a problems with distancing, included behind!
“If there are rules then maybe we need to play by rules in real life, at the moment a few points/rules I can see just on paper.”
Razma will face either Zoran Lerchbacher, Jim Williams, Gordon Mathers or Kirk Shepherd in Round Three of the UK Open in Milton Keynes on Friday.
