    Scottish Referees

    So, we've got this guy in charge of our trip to Ibroke on Sunday

    https://www.eveningtimes.co.uk/news/...eer-stupidity/

    But it got me thinking... most football fans would probably acknowledge the poor standard of Scottish referees at present, so who was the last good Scottish referee?

    Alcohol IS the answer, but I forget the question...

    Another example of a Scottish referee’s poor decision making.

    Surely all referees are actually fans of one Scottish club or another?
    So are we to believe they're all cheats?
    I hope not - because football is finished if that's the case.

    Not all cheats I'm sure, but some of Beaton's decisions, particularly when officiating Rangers matches have been dodgy. So I think Sutton's point in the article is valid.

    Not only will it be him.... we'll have the staunch tory linesman as well no doubt.

    He’s guilty of being an inbred bigoted orange twat

    Like that ****tard Craig Thomson getting photographed with the school boys doing the 5-1 hands

    But it suits the establishment so nothing is done about it

    Think it was Beaton who sent Handling off at Ibrox for an innocuous tackle a few years ago.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    I remember a cup tie when Rangers played Stenhousemuir. A gang of Rangers players bundled the Stemnie goalie over the line and Beaton gave a goal. After that he was generally known as the best referee money can buy.

    That's some leap in logic.

    How was the referee today? He booked seven players, the first few relatively early into the game. Two for Mackie who was sent off.

    From the reports on today's game, the ref hardly gets a mention so I'm assuming we can't blame him.

    Looked like he ignored or overruled the linesman flagging for offside when the lino was in a far better position than him. He also didn't enforce the new sub leaving the pitch rules.

    Thought Doige was lucky not to be sent off for his booking, though we were 2 down by then

    Irrespective of the off side you cannot criticise hime about the sub rule unless you avtually have read and understood it. Rhe referee retains discretion where the players leave the pitch. If you dont believe me go actually read the rule.

    Other than that Cheatin' Beaton can just gettae
