“This is a linesman for the SFA” – Celtic fans lambast pro Sevco tweet
If there was ever a time where you needed confirmation that there could be inherent bias towards one club from Scottish officials it is now.
Celtic fans have long thought that some referee’s had leanings towards a certain club that plays in blue, and most likely they do, but if they ever want to dispel that myth, tweets like these do them absolutely no favours.
After *Rangers’ hilar…….I mean devastating loss in the Europa League Final on Wednesday, Douglas Ross, who famously got Simunovic sent off in a Glasgow Derby tweeted this:
Normally, not too bothered about something like that. It’s probably his ‘civic’ duty as a unionist MP to congratulate failure but the issue many seem to have is there is no balance from the MSP.
No congratulations tweet to St Johnstone on their cup double win last season? Or what about Celtic in their historic second 9 in a row or Quadruple Treble.
Don’t be daft. So it’s little wonder fans of other clubs eye our match officials with suspicion:
An @spfl match official tweeting about The Rangers. Presume he will have tweeted also to congratulate Celtic on winning the league? No? Impartiality of our match officials? Also, GIRUY.

A Scottish club go 1-0 up against a German team in a Europa league final and immediately start chanting about a Dutch Monarch killing Irish Catholics fighting for an English King in a field in Meath 332 years ago.

Must have missed the congrats to Celtic tweet last week.
You can’t win anything Doogie 😂😂 good to see your neutral seeing as your on official in Scotland. Makes Celtic’s achievement even more impressive.

Any tweets congratulating any of the Scottish teams who actually WON something this season?— is it just me? (@itsalmostasif) May 19, 2022
