It’s simple - we aren’t winning a thing until refereeing corruption is addressed by the club

We were poor last night, there’s no doubt about it. However if the referee does his job properly then we leave Rugby Park with an ugly win and 3 points in the bag like the first game of the season. Every successful Rangers team has done this on numerous occasions at places like Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, however last night we simply weren’t allowed to.

Kilmarnock should have had two sending offs and their equaliser shouldn’t have stood. Morelos goal should have stood. We could have had a penalty. Kent got booked for trying to stand up whilst McKenzie was allowed to bearhug someone without a caution.

We aren’t talking about a single incorrect decision here due to incompetence. It’s various game changing decisions called against one team, and by the same referee who robbed us of 3 points at Pittodrie and then pathetically apologised. It’s blatant cheating, and it’s all because of his fear of being labelled a cheating hun by a certain demographic who have a perceived injustice from a single game in which they actually benefitted from more incorrect big decisions than us. We seen the same with Madden last week and just about every other time he referees us.

Then there’s guys like Clancy who have no fear of hiding their allegiance. We were very lucky to leave the piggery with 3 points after that cheats performance.

Factor in the decisions the filth get in their favour when struggling (Clancy penalty x 2, offside goal in final, Griffiths stamp last week etc), plus all of the bookings they avoid for stamps, dives and bad tackles, then the agenda is as clear as day.

We have been robbed of one trophy this season due to incorrect decisions and we are now out of the title race for the same reason.

I know we were horrendous last night but absolutely no one can deny that if every refereeing decision was called correctly, we would still have won comfortably.

Next season will be even worse as they aim for 10. Their intimidation of referees and our never ending silence on being cheated will simply ensure that the status quo continues next season.

Are us supporters helpless in this situation? Is there much we can really do if those at our club are happy to stand idly by as officials deny us the right to compete by officiating fairly?

Absolutely sick of it.

You put games to bed when you are 1-0 up you don’t need to worry about refs decisions. Simple as that!

We at the moment are struggling to put games to bed!
Unfortunately this is the attitude that has us where we are and has the filth benefitting from everything going.

Why should we have to win every game by 2 goals due to cheating officials?

If their equaliser is correctly ruled out, or Morelos late goal correctly stands, we win that game ugly by a single goal.

No league winners will ever romp every game. You need to be able to grind out ugly wins away. Should we be denied that right at every tough away ground due to cheating officials?

Beaton alone has now cost us 5 points on our travels to difficult grounds.

Compare and contrast to when Celtic are struggling, like the Hamilton game recently. They get helping hands from referees to ensure they win.

The referees have been poor, inconsistent and just not up to standard. However, let's not use this as an excuse. In the games we've played since the break we have been rotten. It started with Stranraer and it hasn't improved. We've taken the lead in games and can't see them out. We got terrible decisions against us in the 90s and 00s but we were steamrolling teams so it didn't matter. Now that we're struggling these matters come into focus more.

Our PR is so bad we can't bleat about refs. We're so busy chucking out useless statements like confetti it simply wouldn't hold any weight. It would just seen like another moan. We need to be selective when making statements to make maximum impact. Look at that mob, don't say much but then wham, a complaint made to ofcom and Sky are banned.

You don't start dishing out statements when you get gubbed, if we're going to do we should do it right... and start by getting rid of Traynor.

We were 1-0 up and cheating Beaton allowed a goal to stand after a handball. We also had a perfectly good penalty shout turned down as well as a good goal disallowed. He also allowed at least two of their players to remain on the park when there was no doubt they should have walked. If Beaton hadn't cheated we might well have put the game to bed and won ugly as they say.
The cheating has to be called out.

If the Management Team and the players don’t know by now the refereeing is corrupt and yet they are not putting teams to bed to give referees no decisions to cost us then there’s something seriously wrong.

So by your rational we’re not allowed to win games 1-0? Last time I checked 1-0 or 6-0 still gets you the same amount of points.

Show me a season when we won the league when we didn’t win a scrappy game by a single goal.

Referees are influencing our games far too regularly, in fact it’s now almost on a weekly basis.

Exactly mate.

The same shitty apathy like this by people of our persuasion has allowed Papes to run the whole show including the country.

We've slept walked for 30 plus years.

Rangers need to call a media conference to expose the systemic cheating and bias that we have all had to endure.

Such a conference should take the format of (say) 20 video clips, and we should invite any journalist present to agree with the referee, and tell us why?

If handled correctly, then maybe, just maybe, next season's SPFL will be won by the best team.

No doubt about it, Celtic are a good team, but we have outclassed them in our last two meetings. We honestly don't know who is better - Rangers or Celtic - because the rules have been so distorted in a desire to reward just one team, that an accurate comparison just can not be made.

The game in Scotland simply reeks of the stench of corruption, and we should be doing everything in our power to rid the game of this blight.

Yes they have an when you read some of the apathetic drivel on here it’s easy for me to know why.
Completely lost interest in arguing with people who basically refuse to see what’s happening in front of them.

Its totally different now, in the 90s 00 there was bad decisions, maybe even the odd bent ref, but things are very very sinister with 5 refs going out to corrupt the games we play, and help Celtic.

To defend this behaviour or suggest we just play a bit better is utterly bonkers.

this argument can only be made by someone who knows absolutely nothing about football.

Even the greatest Rangers teams had to dig out results. Ref’d fairly, we would be several points better off, 5 from Beaton alone last night and Pittodrie.

This crap has to stop mate, you can only put a game to bed if you are allowed to. The Ref gifted them a goal to get back in, he also chopped off a good one of ours, phuck me what do you want us to do? We are going to have tough games away at Kilmarnock and Aberdeen and we are not as a free scoring team as Celtic that's just the way it is. 3 points right now is what matters. Essentially that Cnut last night stopped us putting that game to bed!

The problem is worse than at first glance.

Because our Board refuses to come out and confront this bias, there is NO reason that it won't just go on and on and on.

Forever.

There literally is the possibility that Rangers will NEVER be allowed to win another domestic title or cup.

Not ever again.

The refereeing seems to have been taken up a notch and has got noticeably worse since they realised we were about to leapfrog the scum with our game in hand.
This but there is sweet FA we can do about it. The tims have got it sewn up with the refs on field and then those you complain too off it! Will be another few trebles before those out with our country start to ask questions

Agreed. I said this last season as well and then fell into the trap of 'believing' so the club could get another load of cash from me

Good luck selling season tickets when we have so many meekly accepting this reality in the boardroom and in the support as we can see on here.
