Cause the game was in danger of being abandoned. Also we should'v just hammered them, absolutely hammered them, but iirc Gough & co. were so pissed off also that they just did the minimum to win.

You have to have at least 7 players on the pitch or game gets abandoned as we were winning at the time it's the last thing we would of wanted.

Surely you get a 3 nil win at least if that happened

Ref was an absoltue wanker that day.  Common sense should have prevailed that day.  Little did we know that 20 years later Hearts would turn out to be the laughing stock they had become and continue to be.

Because another man gets sent off for Hearts and we can all go home as they knew they were getting a hammering and could easily have lost more men.

I remember this, was at the game and never having seen the like I thought 4 men off meant the game got abandoned. What a red neck when the woman in front turned round to tell me a team had to be down to 6 before it gets called off. What do I know.

Wallace Mercer IIRC was the chairman telling the manager to get the team off.

I think Gough and others got annoyed because ref booked the Hearts player for kicking the goalpost out of frustration.

I think it was his second yellow ,so get sent off.

Gough being a typical Rangers man wanted the ref to be a little understanding. Wonder if Gough would still do that if he played 

for Rangers now? 🙂

Nothing to do with us but pretty sure something similar happened between Sheffield Weds and W.B.A some years ago, Seem to remember Neil Warnock and Gary Megson being the managers, Fuck knows what it was all about but iirc Gary Megson was going fucking apeshit accusing Warnock of all sorts for days afterwards, Could be wrong but don't think there's any love lost between them.

That wanker Pointon got sent off for kicking the post.  That’s when it started to get farcical.  When the 4th player went the crowd was audibly frustrated with the red as was Gough.

Ally came on and tried his hardest to score when everyone else had given up haha.

My mate's brother was a linesman that day. One of the players that were sent off was giving him real dogs abuse, real vile shit. That one really deserved to be sent off. From what my mate told me, the cunt should have been banned for a lengthy period.

Haven’t watched the video back but I’m sure it was Paul Ritchie and Davie Weir who got sent off too - alongside someone else and a French guy?

Or was it Allan Johnston? I remember two of the players went on to play for us. It was a question in a Rangers quiz a few years back.

Paul Ritchie I guess could barely be described as a Rangers player.
