Killie’s manager believes the likes of Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou will want to walk a mile in his shoes to see what it’s really like not to receive helpful decisions from video technology.
Saturday saw the latest VAR drama with the Ayrshire club this season.
Despite clearly seeing the incident, field official Chris Graham failed to award a penalty to Kelly after a flagrant handball from St Johnstone defender Andy Considine.
Inexplicably, the VAR examined the incident for three minutes and concluded that no further action was required.
It was later revealed by McInnes that Considine admitted he got away with it.
Other major talking points from the match at Rugby Park were Kyle Vassell’s goal being disallowed for a handball, as well as Rory McKenzie claiming a penalty.
MacInnes insists a number of calls have been made against Killie using VAR.
When analyzing the many individual events of recent months, it’s hard to argue that they didn’t hit the green with it.

Earlier in the term Postecoglou claimed that several VAR calls went against Celtic, while club officials went to the Scottish FA about their grievances.
Citing the Australian as an example, McInnes hinted that he was the one with the right roping.
“In terms of the decision with senior Andy Considine,” he said. “It was like to me, ‘I don’t know how I got away with it. ‘ He knew right away that it hit his arm. It’s fully outstretched.”
I asked the referee why he didn’t ask you to look into it? He told me the VAR said they checked it, and there was no need to look into it.
“As for our disallowed goal, the fourth official tried to explain to me during the match when he said the ball hit Kyle Vassell’s arm before he put it over the goal line. He said any player who catches the ball and gets a clear advantage against the goal should be penalized.
“I never saw a Rory Mackenzie penalty again. I actually thought the referee put in a good game. But it’s as if the VAR was brought in to help and assist the referees, giving them this opportunity to take a second look at things.
“I think we seem to be looking at a lot of things that we don’t need to look at, a lot of things that we should look at again, especially the penalty.
“It’s frustrating. You hear Ange Postecoglou and everyone else talking and almost make fun of VAR like they’re getting nothing. Whereas, if you look at it, we’ve had instability. Honestly, it’s ridiculous. We can’t seem to get any break for everyone.
“I thought we did well. It’s difficult to play against the Saints.”
