Have any of our impartial Press highlighted that we have not had a penalty in the league since last October?

It's amazing how often it's sighted or insinuated in the press, on radio and in football forums that Rangers are given penalties on a weekly basis yet the truth is quite the opposite.

Remember the outcry when Dallas awarded us four penalties in the one match at Ibrox ? Three of them were stonewallers. One was incorrectly awarded and we were actually denied the most blatant appeal towards the end of the game. The mhedia went into overdrive.
The club said nothing about it.
Ever since that day there seems to have been an enormous amount of pressure applied to not award us a penalty kick no matter how clear it is. Various handballs in the box were ignored. Beaton bottled out of giving us a penalty at Pittodrie and instead awarded us only a free kick outside the box.
Gerrard should have slaughtered him. Instead he gave him the benefit of the doubt by saying he'd be the most disappointed person in the stadium that he got it wrong.

It made it easy for Beaton to shaft us again at Rugby Park a few weeks later.
You just know if it was the unwashed that had gone so long without a penalty kick we would be reading about it on a weekly basis and of course it would be used as evidence of a perceived bias against them.

It's time for Rangers to start highlighting the negligence of Referees to apply the rules in a fair and honest manner.

Yesterday was clear proof of how Referees will continue to shaft us so long as we do not call them out.
I said it at the time; the St. Mirren penalty awards were purely to keep the numbers up and less obvious in a game that we were clearly going to win.

Barisic with any other ref I think goes down yesterday at that lunge instead he hurdles the leg and we still nearly scored.

Every footballer in the world in his position would have initiated contact and gone down in my opinion but we clearly have been told not to give Clancy an excuse to book us. With Barisic on a yellow it was the sensible option.
Clancy would've sent him off with a second yellow for diving.

Tbf I’m not sure he was, Barisic gave Clancy the chance to send him off and he never
At that incident if he had sent him of he would have had to explain the full circumstances and why Alfie was on ground with hash on his leg.

He protected himself at that point as if he had sent barsic off clancy couldn't have explained and was in a whole lot of trouble

It’s a good point. I would guess that we haven’t went a calendar year Without a penalty in the last 50 years or so but maybe some statistician can clarify?
It happens to coincide with us giving them a proper challenge for the first time in 8 years.

Last Season was bordering on corrupt the amount of penalties we were denied. A Ref even turned down a blatant handball and claimed he couldn't award the penalty as it was windy.

As I’ve said, I think the referees are, in the main, just shit. I don’t buy into the theory they are against us any more than they are against anyone else. Talk to fans of clubs outwith the OF and they will tell you we both get decisions they would never get.

I don‘t have a problem with Rangers highlighting clear errors. In fact I’d welcome it when it is blatantly wrong. Had we not been given a penalty as blatant as the St Mirren one yesterday I’d see no reason for us not to comment upon it. Most decisions aren’t that clear cut though.
._.which fans what are you talking crap about today?

you said other fans as tho we should take them seriously which fans?
I‘ve been out of Scotland for more than 40 years but still talk with old mates from school. Being a Lanark boy that means Motherwell, Accies, Hibs, Hearts and, oddly, Dundee United. I’d say the fans of every club in Scotland would say exactly the same thing though. I’ve no problem talking to fans of any club, doesn’t mean I agree with every opinion they have. How you view their opinions is for you.

See, if we accept that, then we might as well just shut down and all go play golf or something. If the games corrupt then the games a bogey and not worth playing.
Well it is a bogey for the first time since I seen your posts on here you are making some sense, they have everything tied up, maybe instead of listening to the Hamilton accies fans or whoever your mate is from the the 70s you should read the posts on here from Rangers supporters.

You watch on tv you must see the level of corruption and bias from refs they don't exactly hide it, its blatant the same guys aint ignoring bad challenges on tims they are trained up to influence the match and avoid problems with the media.

Im sure you do accept the media is biased in Scotland.

Exactly what I said after a gift of a title.


Can yo honestly 100% say that Clancy is a bad ref rather than a cheating bigot?

Or that Beaton is not damaged goods?

Said it before refs in this country are more a threat to us winningthe league than Celtic.
If we don’t call them out it’s a joke.

I’m sorry bud but given we haven’t had a League penalty in almost a year, those fans claiming we ‘get decisions they wouldn’t get,’ is just pish. We all know the fans of these clubs talk out of their arse and here, statistics absolutely back it up.

Think Roofe can take penalties? IMO was a mistake to take Tav off the penalties as he had scored many under pressure (you certainly do not change it in a cup final against your rivals).

PS their French striker is a diver but never seems to get highlighted.
Absolutely, just the latest in a long line. Their dives that result in penalties would be yellow cards, playing for us.

No wonder the refs cheat tho, our club has no idea how to deal with the problem the VAR statement was so sad, lets help the bent refs with tv replays, ffs. I think Gerrard wanted to deal with it but quickly found out he would get no support and slaughtered by the press, ex players cant say anything as tim tv/radio/papers pay their bills, and worst of all even on a fans forum you still read the stuff about being better than timothy or bears going on and on and on about refs being shite.

At the same time tim support has 0 to moan about not even a corner, their journos and ex players are actually quite positive about refs and how tough the job is and theres no longer statements from their board or Lennon running onto the park to have a go at them.

There must be a ref out there that's disgusted by whats happening to refereeing they cant all believe its their duty to respect and serve Celtic fc, their press dregs/ support. Take a lot of balls to speak out easy for me to say right enough, but its a massive story could make yourself a right few £££. Id be a little worried about someone going to the press if I was part of this Celtic refereeing gang.
