More honest mistakes? Or just plain cheating?
Until it is called out then we will never know.
Of course, no one will ever dare say publicly that the referee’s are corrupt due to the legal ramifications of such an accusation, but at what point do we stop, and have a serious look at the officials in our game?
Are they really that incompetent? Surely no one can be THAT incompetent? Either way, our game will never be taken seriously by any major broadcaster until decisions like last night are either trained out of the refs, or called out.
Last night is as close as you could possibly get when BBC Sportsound’s Richard Gordon reacted to the footage he saw of the penalty decision, “As I was running through one screen, I noticed there was another incident coming through from the game from Ibrox. I thought, why are they showing that? They showed that it’s a nothing incident I’ve just realised that’s the penalty! That is unbelievable!!
“I’ve been doing this long enough. I’m quite willing to be open and honest about anything. I certainly wouldn’t be going crazy. There’s just no way that is a penalty. There’s nothing there and what John Beaton has seen, goodness only knows.”
It really was a brilliant reaction and even former Rangers player Richard Foster, was left dumbstruck.
I’m sure there will be a full and thorough investigation by the SFA to find out exactly why that decision was taken but it will be interesting to see what game Beaton is assigned to next………..
