Aberdeen are utterly tragic against the filth, however today is a prime example of the refereeing bias that is being implemented when officiating both sides from Glasgow.
Recently the filth have scored 90th minute winners away to Hearts and Kilmarnock. This was only enabled due to the referee sending off an opposition player.
Today they are going to beat the sheep, again enabled by their pal Thomson sending off two opposition players and awarding them a penalty.
In our recent 1-1 draw at Easter road, Hibs should have had 3 men sent off. In recent games against Kilmarnock, we’ve had Power and a few others kick fûck out of Rangers players (one kick about 6ft off the deck in Jacks face) safe in the knowledge that they are protected. In the recent cup games against Aberdeen, Considine, Ferguson, Shinnie, Devlin and Mckenna could all have seen red. Instead they were allowed to kick us up and down the park safe in the knowledge that they are protected.
Referees don’t need much encouragement to send players off against the filth in difficult games, whilst they continue to enable our opponents to boot us all over the place without punishment. It’s blatant cheating and guys like Clancy and Thomson are now masters of it.
I won’t even go into the double standards with regards to what is seen as a red card offence for our players and their players as it’s been widely discussed on here over the season.
Yes we haven’t been good enough when it’s mattered this season but we have a massive job on our hands trying to overhaul the refereeing corruption that we face.
The scary thing is it is only going to get worse as that mob go for 9 and possibly 10.
Categorically yes. The DFBs have weasled their way into the job in disproportionate numbers and are systematically ruining it due to their bigoted bias, like everything else they touch (including small boys).
Its a YES from me. We are chastised for every little thing yet never recognised for any effort we give. Lot of charity to a little girl this week from Alfredo and Rangers, very poor coverage. ABOD walk by a chapel, picture of Police and Rangers tops all over news
I've said it before, but we aren't winning trophies until the intimidated ref issue is finally addressed. Our players are yellow and red carded for incidents that refs allow to go unchallenged by other teams.
Us and the filth have different rules applied to us, as do all other teams depending on what one of the two of us they play.
Aberdeen obviously thought that they could get away with booting fûck out of the opposition players, given the refs have allowed them today it 6 times against us this season. They must have forgot they were playing the filth.
It’s frustrating that there are still bears who continue to bury their heads in the sand about this corruption.
The level of corruption and dishonesty in refereeing is really quite frightening its an even a bigger issue for the club than the media, the refs enjoy it(big Craig was buzzing today) more so the positive coverage that comes from tim papers, tv,radio etc when the big decisions go Celtics way our against Rangers.
The ref cheated Aberdeen today, same as the ref cheated to help them against Rangers. It will happen again next season Lennon being manager isnt going to help the situation either.
Thats why i never have a go at the manager, yeah he made bad signings and that formation is easy to play against, but really how can you judge a managers performance or his team when you know week after week the team is up against bent officials out to cause us problems.... and not only that desperate do the tims favours any time they are struggling.
Its incredible how obvious it is i think a lot of these refs are absolutely mental.
Mind, the amount of Rangers fans (and true blues at that) that I know who refuse to accept that match officials have any reall effect on our results, is startling.
It appears to be a remnant of the "dignified silence" routine that worked so well for us.
There is no question about it. We get booted over the park constantly without action being taken and then one questionable fouls from us sees a booking. Our players need to do more in putting pressure on refs though.
I have absolutely nothing concrete to base this assertion on, but I can confidently say that had that Dominic Ball challenge that resulted in a red card today had occurred against us then it would not have resulted in a red card.
We've seen it all season long, opponents getting away with booting our players up and down the park and getting off scot free yet the minute Morelos reacts in any manner a red card is produced. Yet that Killie thug Power got away with a nose high challenge in the Scottish Cup, both from the ref at the time and the compliance review afterwards.
Are we refereed to a different standard? Absolutely.
