Some Glasgow Rangers fans are enraged that the inept Kevin Clancy has been deemed responsible enough by the Peter Lawwell influenced SFA, to referee such an important match against Celtic this Sunday.
If Celtic beat Rangers in the next SPFL fixture, they will go eight points ahead of the Ibrox club, although the Hoops have played one game more.
It is difficult enough to win against the league leaders at Celtic Park, without enduring biased referee decisions going to the other side.
The Rangers players, and particularly Alfredo Morelos, will have to keep a lid on their frustrations, and not give Clancy the chance to make any match changing decisions.
Should Steven Gerrard consider leaving Morelos on the bench and starting striker Jermain Defoe for the first hour?
On 60 minutes Rangers could unleash ‘El Buffalo’ into the battle.
Clancy has seemingly held a grudge against Morelos since his wrongful red card up in Pittodrie last season. It was eventually rescinded by television evidence.
It is appalling that the SFA have given him one of the SPFL’s four biggest games of the season, even if it’s not been proven he’s biased against Rangers, but he is incompetent.
Can someone explain why this is one of the biggest games this season, and they give it to one of the worst referees?
Rangers are still unbeaten away from home in the league, and hope to see that record continue, even though it’s a tough ask of Gerrard’s new team.
Apart from referee Clancy, David McGeachie and Dougie Potter will run the lines and Nick Walsh (the recent Hibs ref), is the fourth official.
The standard of refereeing in Scotland is probably at an all-time-low, and the SFA know it. They get angry whenever managers express their disgust.
Clancy and Collum are notorious for causing controversy in too many ties for it to be a coincidence.
These two are not the only ones who appear to lack common sense.
Let’s be honest, who in their right mind would join an organisation that is riddled by accusations of biased decisions and downright cheating.
