I know people have a soft spot for Celtic on here, but they have some nerve. If the officials and SFA did everything properly, then Scott Brown would forever be getting pulled up.

Will they be raising the same concerns the next time Scott Brown tries to cripple an opposition player and still doesn't get a red card?

The SFA will only answer to Celtic though and the rest of us. Weíd all like to know and it would be the same if it was Celtic and huns where asking. They need accountability for this, Morelos getting off when it would have given Killie a huge advantage in their next match is hugely unfair.

If this was about one dubious decision you could perhaps accuse Celtic of having a brass neck, but if Beaton is saying he witnessed all those incidents involving Morelos but didn't think any warranted action then it is tantamount to an admission of bias.

Any one of them could've been a red card in isolation. Celtic's statement was inevitable and justifiable.

Good on them! About time the SFA were formally called out.

Refereeing standards in this country are shambolic. I can call 2 games last season that we did not win, as a direct result of bad officiating.

How the **** can it be right and fair that Morelos got sent off against Aberdeen that the ref seen and decided it was a sending off? Yet the ref decided 3 where okay and you canít look at them again? Makes no sense at all.

Yes. Thereís clearly something not right about it. I wonder if the SFA will toss Beaton into the flames to deflect and avoid too many questions.

Donít see the need for whataboutery on this one. Time this issue was addressed properly. Two of the match officials were former season ticket holders at Ibrox and photos have emerged of the referee at a Bellshill Loyal pub after the game. We should have the same system as in England where referees are not allowed to officiate games where their team is involved.
Even if there were not 3/5 incidents in the game where Morelos could have been carded no official should be put in charge of games where he maybe susceptible to bias.
This plus a disciplinary system that has no consistency or a wilingness to be transparent has created a situation where the majority of Scottish supporters have no faith in the SFA or the referees association.
Aberdeen have asked for an investigation and I would love Hibs to step up to the mark.

Beaton acknowledged his The Rangers affinity in his original profile on refs/SPFL website. He sent off Danny Handling at Ibrox for an innocuous challenge then last season gave Joe Garner a yellow card for blatantly kicking a Hamilton player when the ball was nowhere to be seen. I have no love of Celtc but they're correct to raise this issue as were The Rangers 're the ludicrous sending off of Candeias. Scottish refs are at best arrogant & incompetent, at worst corrupt & incompetent.

Beaton and Madden. Roome was recruited by Madden and the other linesman was Ross the Tory MP for Moray. He was the one that shouted red card , red card at Collum in a previous game where Morelos went down holding his jaw after an incident with Simunovic. Didnít seem to see anything wrong in the latest encounter !

The fact of the matter is that nothing would be done if it wasn't 1 of the OF complaining. I don't care, as long as Morelos is retrospectively red-carded and the referee removed from officiating on top flight games but even with Celtic complaining I doubt much'll happen. Hope I'm wrong though.

Correct. If Beaton has observed those 3 incidents, and following review, he thinks there is no case to answer then he is a cheat.

Was he not the ref who sent off Danny Handling for SFA at Ibrox a few years back?

Celtic picked the right time to call this out, as we have a few weeks to try and resolve the matter and referees canít threaten to strike straight away. There needs to be a lot more transparency from referees, however I donít think it will ever happen as the rot starts from the SFA.

GreenCastle

Football needs changed.

Refs need to have microphones like rugby to explain decisions.

Video technology needed for goalline incidents in Scotland.

Review panel and standard of reffing needs improved or basically refs need more HELP or support.

Add in the rules of injured players wasting time and physio is coming onto the pitch - changes would improve the game significantly.

James Stephen
05-01-2019, 09:14 AM
It does seem ludicrous that an open rangers fan is allowed to referee this game, then miss 3 such big events, then they are reviewed and his original (non) decisions are backed up.

The SFA cannot just batten down the hatches - not only must justice be done, but it must be seen to be done.

It does make you wonder what the the SFA and refs got up to before TV scrutiny... and of course Jim Farry screwing Celtic before and OF game, and the good old BBC 'losing' the highlights of Rangers record defeat to Celtic. I know they act paranoid, but...

Beaton pictures look old thought he had some sort of modern shave hairstyle recently. This is no doubt though that all top refs seem to be run by refs around the Glasgow area with their associations having a stranglehold which imo doesn't help. The huge number of massive decisions these refs get wrong with no comeuppance is bizarre and wrong. Was it over a hundred years before an Edinburgh ref got the Scottish cup final which totally says it all?

It was one of the worst games of football I have ever witnessed. A complete non event. Can't remember any good or dodgy decisions but remember the linesman getting a wee clap from the famous 5 fans when he was checking the nets :hilarious

It should be taken as read that nobody should be subjected to threats because of their involvement in a football match.


Beyond that we are in a position with public statements that is of the SFAs making.

TRIFC were fined £6k for calling out Collum recently clearly showing that the SFA did not have the stomach for a fight and were prepared to throw the officials under a bus.

Celtc will have sensed this and have gone public to sate their own support (and knowing that the SFA will do little to them for going public)

Beyond that, and despite having adjoining offices at Hamden, the SFA and SPFL have spent years developing a system for reviewing incidents that is not fit for purpose (sure itís about 8 seasons old: remember OíConnor being in front of them for allegedly diving against St Johnstone). This despite a citing process working well in other sports

Arguments about re-refereeing a game are bogus. The incidents being discussed are possible red cards for endangering another player and there should be a way of these being reviewed, independent of the referees.

I expect nothing to happen, not because of any bias but because the clubs will be chased off with the threat of paying for VAR, when the current need is for an effective review process.

He worked for Strathclyde Uni in some sort of tech support role apparently. Also apparently quit and is effectively trying to focus full time on combining his efforts as a full time referee and supporting rangers...

Edit - checked with a ref mate, he quit his work because he was a 4th official at the Euros and he couldn't get time off.

Second edit - mate text to say he's now working with Scotrail. All this is available in the public domain via google so in no way trying to share privileged information.

Just watched the Morelos incidents for the first time.

We should save a copy and next time a Hibs player is sent off for any kind of violent conduct, use that as the central part of our appeal.

Laughable that Kamberi got a second booking in the derby and Morelos has done nothing wrong.

Absolute ****-hole loyalist pub, not that I've ever been in, but walked past it many times & looks rough as.

I was in it after the last game at Hamilton, I'm still alive.

That to me is the central point in all this. Refs will make mistakes, some more than others, but the chance to review incidents and maintain as much consistency as possible should be welcomed by all. It won't be perfect but it should get it as close as it can be and if refs are consistently getting decisions overturned then you can review their performance and give others a chance. That would take them out of the headlines and maybe encourage more refs to come forward as ability would be one of teh main driving forces in becoming a top Scottish ref rather than who you know.

He worked for Strathclyde Police in Comms before that... probably got the job after being asked where he went to school and what team he supported.

I wouldn't say no to 800 quid for being a dick for one and a half hours every week... sometimes twice :brickwall

... probably a lot more, with expenses thrown in, for his Euro jaunts
