Scottish referees vs the rest of the world

A referee got involved in a challenge between two players in Holland and fell on his arse.  The Dutch player picked him up and yellow carded him.  The ref took it in his stride and had a laugh with him.

rewind back to Gazza doing it against one of our referees.  Still disgraceful how he was booked that day for that.  Even the Hibs players were raging.

We were successful then so the scandal of that was somewhat forgotten but that was genuinely one of the most embarrassing episodes of refereeing in this country I have ever seen. Almost as bad was Halliday being sent off for inciting a riot with a clenched fist from the centre circle. It is always harder when we are not winning, we pick up on these things more. They have always been poor up here, and seems to be less scrutiny on them than there would be in a much larger league.

scottish referees cannot use common sense at the least contact it is a foul  then they throw about yellow cards for nothing

 

yet willie collum had the europa league semi final last week  with marseille v salzburg   so they must rate him

i thought the ref at the arsenal v athletico  game  was terrific  not sure where he came from

You must be joking?  Scottish referees are waaay to lenient with the hammer throwers and the game is far more physical in Scotland than any league I've watched.

That doesn't just sum up Scottish referees, that actually sums up Scotland, don't even have an inclination to visit these days.

Scottish football may not be as rich as some other countries leagues, but surely there is enough money to bring in better refs from Europe or England for big games like Cup semis and finals or for old firm games and other derbies

ive never been one to believe that the refs cheat us, but the standards of refs is terrible. And the fact the taigs and lennon have piled so much pressure on them over the past decade makes some of them simply not good enough to handle big games
