The main difference is the refereeing. Unquestionably.

Beale spoke at length about this.  Not the bias aspect, but that technically superior teams will do better in Europe whereas Scottish football allows physicality that holds the game back. "My big

We are a very good European outfit and a team that not many teams would want to pull out in a draw and that is something I didn’t think I would ever be saying for a long time four or five years back.

Previously, I'd agree. Tonight we could have been 3-0 down before we had a shot on target. 

Could have had 5 players sent off for farting before kick off. Didn't happen. Stick to facts. All that matters at end of the day.

has nothing to do with why we excell in Europe.

It has everything to do with why Rangers punching above their weight but not hitting those same heights domestically.  Rangers do better in Europe because the technical ability is rewarded and not the ability to kick people around the park like we seen against Hibs.

Just stop at that and you're onto something. Teams don't sit 11 behind the ball. Teams meet us in the middle of the park and try to play. We suit that. We don't have to worry about beating the block. That's the difference.

Disagree with that..We have had some shocking refereeing results in Europe. Spartak away, Feynoord away and at home to name a few. It's down to our style of play being much more suited to European football. Not all our bad results in the league are referees.

Aye they urr

Refs in Scotland are pish and we don't seem to be getting the run of the green. But it's an excuse leaned on far too often and has nothing to do with why we excell in Europe.

For at least 10 fucking years. 

Are you in total denial or just wearing green rose tinted spectacles ?

Each booking i saw (3?) deserved it. None really hot away with blatant stuff, especially over the ball type challenges. 

Its not coincidence imo.

Hamilton at home last season. Livingston away this season. Tell me the decisions please.

Two wee examples where a wee team did well against us don't overshadow the very many shocking decisions we've had to endure in bigger games by shockingly bad or biased refereeing over the last decade. 

Get real.

True, its usually Goldson, Tav or a combo of both when we drop points domestically.

No not all the others, mostly just the decisions in big games, or allowing other teams to target our players (Morelos)

Stop trying to wind sensible Gers fans up. It's embarrassing.

We are our own worst enemy at times. Goldson looks so composed in Europe as well. He has all the qaulities of a top defender but has that slip in him any given Sunday. Then again so did big Amo.

Because the players relish the challenge of not being expected to win an opposition don’t get in our faces and smell blood unlike In the SPL

:pipe:

I believe you have hit the nail on the head with that post, the pressure is just not the same because losing to teams in Europe is not seen as such a big surprise so the players can relax more. 

In the league at home we the fans expect them to win and some just cannot cope unfortunately.
