In all my time following football, I have never seen a reaction to a dubious decision as I have over Kyogo’s goal against Hearts.
It received all sorts of attention and media coverage over the weekend and even now, there are Rangers fans still pushing a narrative that, somehow, Celtic are on more of the right side of poor refereeing mistakes.
It is a clear and blatant attempt to try and deflect the attention from the obvious gains their team consistently receive from the men in black and twitter account ‘Inside The SPFL’ called it out over the weekend.
More accurately, the account called out the appearance of referee chief, Crawford Allan’s appearance on BBC Sportsound to discuss the goal.
I mean, when has that EVER happened? Ever?
And what kind of precedence does it set?
And when asked to provide examples of this apparent bias towards the Ibrox club:
There’s multiple examples in various games, I’ll give you this one for free, Rangers vs Aberdeen

And when a Hearts supporter jumps in to have a go:
And to prove the point that Allan’s appearance on the show is bizarre, he named various decisions that affected multiple teams over the season and the head of refs stayed silent:
Hold the bus here, making it about two clubs? The whole point is about the Head of Refereeing, you’ve chosen to see it the way you want to see it, look at the thread, I’ve highlighted horrendous decisions that have affected Aberdeen, Dundee Utd, Hearts, Hibernian & Motherwell.

And this is where he is on the money? Why did he come out now and speak? Why not keep his powder dry?
Because you just know that anytime a contentious refereeing decision goes against other clubs, Allan must come out and speak now right?
For the interests of balance and fairness of course…….
