Ian Black whinging


Recommended Posts

Hey c'mon man...He IS hard...and hes carried that with him when he joined us...His worry is and you can see it at times in his game... he reckons he will be singled out by the refs...and lets face it he HAS been...with that hanging on him he could get sent off quite easily...now where does that leave the team?...He also has appologised to us for his back chat..so cut him some slack and give him and the rest of the players the support they deserve...remember... United we Stand...Divided we fall..we are ALL in this together...

:21: Rangers Then..Rangers Now..Rangers Forever...

Just finished reading the article and I cannot see where he is "whinging". Pointing out high tackles, late tackles which are akin to assault is not "whinging" in my opinion, nor is him pointing out referees failure to punish offenders "whinging". Just look at the picture where the boot could have cost him his sight....."whinging"....I don't think so.

The refs have been shocking, numerous of our players get booked for challenges that are debatable but as soon as Black tackles and the ref deems him not to have won the ball ( even tho at times he has) the yellow card comes out as quick as the scum across the Citys lies.

His career will be over shortly with the treatment he gets if he doesn't get more protection from officials.

See Jamie0202's post for evidence of what he is getting.

he is in the record whinging about refs. they have been shocking but ffs man up - no whinging I thought he was meant to be hard!

Whatever, hes clearly been targeted by the donkeys in SFL3 and is right to speak out as some of the 'tackles' on him have been criminal, nothing wrong with trying to get protection for our players, strong but fair challenges are a great part of football but the kind of assaults Blacks having to deal with would be straight reds in any other game against any other team but Rangers.

The OP is whinging about Ian Black's comments. Irony doesn't begin to describe this thread.

Given the numerous assaults that have been perpetrated on Black, he is quite right to speak out against the scandalous refereeing this season.

RANGERS midfielder Ian Black has launched a scathing attack on the referees he feels could have caused him serious injury this season.

And he issued a heartfelt apology to the Rangers supporters for taking his frustrations out on them in a verbal exchange he now bitterly regrets.

Black famously wore a T-shirt under his Hearts strip last season which he exposed at Easter Road after scoring against Hibs in an Edinburgh derby. It said he was going to 'paint this place maroon'.

But it was only blood on the walls that was left behind by the former painter and decorator yesterday as he catalogued a series of complaints against match officials who, in his opinion, haven’t carried out their duties well enough.

Black said: "I'd love to open up on referees but I'd only get my fingers rapped if I did that."

But if this was the 27-year-old being reluctant to say what he truly felt then everybody will be eager for the day when he finally speaks his mind.

The most serious allegation arose from the challenge against Clyde at Broadwood last weekend that left Black with a gash above his right eye which was still clearly visible at Murray Park yesterday.

He said: "I could have lost an eye in that incident. I knew football in the Third Division with Rangers would be physically tough and I wasn't put off by that because I've played in the juniors and I was in the Highlands with Inverness Caley Thistle at another stage in my career."

"But it doesn't help when refs are doing nothing about some of the stuff going on.

"I got a straight leg in the face against Clyde and another one that left me with stud marks from my shoulder to my chest when we played Stirling Albion before that. Some players are making challenges with their studs at head height and nothing's being done about it."

Black doesn't believe he has been singled out for special treatment because his reputation as one of the SPL's harder cases has gone before him.

He is more inclined to believe he's the victim of unsatisfactory handling of matches by officials who're less competent than he's been used to in the top flight.

Black said: "Some of the things I've seen in the Third Division would see you getting banned and done for assault in the SPL.

"The environment I'm in now is totally different from what I'd been used to in the SPL. The top division is more relaxed.

"In the Third Division you have to win your one-to-one battles before you can start to think about winning any match.

"I might be a marked man but I think our whole squad's been singled out because of the size of the club and who we're playing against. We're all marked men.

Maybe some of our boys didn't believe it would be like this but I thought we dealt with the physical side of the game well at Clyde last week.

The problem is the referees are just waving the offenders by unless you react and they might give the boy a booking.

I don't mind that so much but when there are a couple of tackles that are completely overboard, referees have to stand up and say, Hold on, that's enough.

I've noticed a 100 per cent difference down in the lowest league. They are getting away with murder down here compared to the SPL.

The challenge at Stirling burst my strip up to the chest and the guy who did it got a booking.

Meanwhile, I've been sent off for stupid nothing tackles in my time. I just find it strange and a throwback to my days in the juniors.

Black&'s only theory to explain the inconsistency in refereeing standards he's experienced concerns the ability of the match officials.

He said: "You hear about refs who get promoted or demoted for their performances. Maybe the ones in the Third Division are only there because they're not handling decisions right.

I've been booked five games in a row this season for nothing.

I could have lost an eye at Broadwood and referees can't make allowances for the challenges that are going on. If they are giving players leeway then they shouldn't be handling games.

Black's temper got the better of him against Clyde when the Rangers fans snapped at him after two bad corner kicks and he growled back at them in a way that now leaves him feeling embarrassed.

He said: "I heard a few people in the crowd having a go at me and it was immature to answer them back. The fans are great but it's understandable they get uptight when things don't come off.

It doesn't help when the crowd is getting on your back but I shouldn't have reacted the way I did.

I've learned from that and I'll blank it out now while hopefully making the crowd happier.

One minute a crowd is on your back and the next they're cheering you. That's part of the game.

I hate losing and that leads to frustration at times. But I know we have a massive cup tie against Alloa this weekend because they're a good side.

But we'll have our heads around it and we have the ability to play one and two-touch football. We need to do that consistently. And then duck, presumably.

In fairness to him he is getting booted up and down the park every game and getting no protection. Yet as soon as he puts in a half meaty challenge he is straight in the book! He needs to get one of these div3 fuckwit snapped and take the red card for it, get it out his system. If he keeps getting thumped every week is will end up with a serious injury.

Snap back Ian. Take the knee off one of these cunts and they will soon stop clattering you every game
