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.
Couldn't have said it better myself, even small things like giving our players yellows for nothing will all add up and lead to suspensions towards the end of the season.

How do we get across to our board that unless this cheating is addressed we will eventually stop buying season tickets? We as fans deserve better.

If you look at it simplisticly.
The referees know if they give us anything they are hounded by the paedos, hounded by their paedo harbouring media, and threatened by their terrorist supporting fans.
Therefore, they deliberately give everything against us. Our club do not hound them. The media won't hound them. Our fans are not psychos.
Intimidation in its finest form.

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!
Unless it’s two or three decisions - and then that theory goes right out of the window obviously. We had to overcome about 7 or 8 big decisions all going against us at Parkhead. We squeaked out of there with a win despite playing great. Ironically the ref prevented us doing what you suggest: win easily.

No one at ibrox has the balls to call it out. It's truly sickening. Ultimately it is us, the fans, who are suffering due to it, but we are powerless to do anything about it
you say we are. but actually we aint powerless. it would come down to do we, AS FANS have the bottle to do anything about it. it aint rocket science what we would need to do.

You are part of the problem. The tarriers have been at it from McDonald and the refs strike - look where it's got them!!!!

Go back to when Dallas got coined - it was our fault for having a huddle at the end.
Well, no. I specifically mean that it come from Club 1872 would hold no bearing.

Our fans are beginning to sound like Celtic fans were in the 90s. This whole “SFA are against us” nonsense. Seeing folk losing it because Morelos’ dive wasn’t a penalty.

The refereeing/officiating isn’t the best however to say there’s this agenda against us is nothing short of embarrassing and is clutching at the straws. We should be winning games by scoring goals in play. It’s our own fault.

Believe it or not, it happens to other teams like Celtic but because they’re actually able to put games to bed it isn’t a topic for discussion.

Let's say you don't believe in the conspiracy aspect to all this and the referees are just poor, why are we not piling as much pressure on them as we can to get as many points as we can anyway?

They've done it and it shows.

The club don't have the guts for the fight and it doesn't matter if they're costing us games. They still won't fight.

However, lets not kid on that our performances are that bad at times even a fair ref isn't going to help.

They tried to put the game to bed at 1-0 but refereeing decisions put paid to that. We were 1-0 up when they should've lost players.

The “ if we’d tried harder” rationale that some of our support prescribe to, I wonder, does that extend to the League acup Final?
The apathy by some of Our own is simply frightening.

Its like Protestants and Unionists in this country. Slept Walked for 30 plus years and look at Us now.

We continue this way and some of our support still bury their heads in the sands then they wont just be winning 9. They'll be doing 15, 20 in a row.

I’ve never known it so bad with refs In the six decades or so in going to Ibrox plainly clear to me the dignified silence nonsense is killing us could the continous crap descision making be getting into the players heads in some form or other the fact it’s not isolated incidents but almost every single game is extremely worrisome to say the least.

That’s getting to the way I feel at this moment and time mate.

Us supporters are pumping £25m-£30m a season into Rangers in tickets alone including Euro games. We are the clubs main investor by some distance and all we want in return is a bit of success on the park.

Why should I continue to shell out what I do following Rangers home and away when officials aren’t allowing us to compete and the club do absolutely fûck all about it.

Absolutely scunnered with it.

If all decisions were called correctly on Wednesday, what would the score have been?

If all decisions in the LC final were called correctly, what would the score have been?

If all decisions were called correctly in our last trip to Pittodrie, what would the score have been?

When was the last time we gained points or won a trophy due to a big decision going our way?

When was the last time the filth lost due to a big decision going against them?

Carry on continuing to bury your head in the sand and our club will continue to get shafted by officials on a weekly basis.

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.
I'm not denying that refs have cost us points and there is nothing wrong with grinding out ugly wins away and home for that reason.

I just feel we have come back from the break and we have struggled with games. We flew through December playing very tough games between Europe and the League. Get back after the break and we struggled to beat St Mirren & Ross County at home never mind the other results.

Not one of us can explain why this has happened, yes referees decisions have hurt us but there is more to it than that. I have not lost any faith in the team and managerial staff. We have played Celtic off the park twice this season and we know we can match them. Its time to focus on the positives of this team and where we have come from and spur them on to the end of the season!

The board are outliving their usefulness. They freed us from the spivs, and we will be forever grateful to them for that.

But there is much more work to be done to get us back to where we belong. Standing up for the club is a basic duty of theirs and one at which they are failing miserably. Look at how they’ve hung Morelos out to dry. FFS, he’s the victim of vile racist attacks every time he takes to the pitch and what does our board do? Issues another statement and that’s it. Pathetic.

We see the open season on Rangers and the fans in the SMSM every day, but what does our board do? Nothing.

We see the open and blatant cheating of referees and the compliance officer every single week which, regardless of the increasingly obvious limitations of players and management, is costing us valuable points but what do the board do? Nothing (apart from the odd statement promising another statement which then fails to materialise).

Add in their inept handling of the SD contract, their inability to attract any significant outside investment and the fact they were responsible for inflicting Warburton, Pedro and Murty on us and I’m struggling to find any reasons why they should remain.

Nothing will happen re referees unless/until the board decide to act and there seems no hope this will happen as long as the current incumbents remain.

The points swing is probably 15-20 points a season due to decisions always going for them and against us.

Ok we need to improve and start killing of the games better but even if we do we have no chance of overcoming that level of disadvantage

a tad dramatic but when we won the game on the 29th against the beasts it was the day we lost the league. We should've come out slating clancy, demanding action against him but instead we do pretty much nothing, clancy gets given tarriers next home game and cheating continues against us, in every game.

We have been cost a fair whack of points and possibly a trophy this season through refereeing.

If it was the same for everyone across a season then fair enough. But its clear refereeing decisions go two ways in Scotland - for Celtic and for whoever Rangers are playing.

Where do you start with this nonsense?

If you are referring to Morelos's 'fall' nobody that I have read claims it is anything other than a dive.

Are you incapable of understanding that the handball given - they don't score or the header stands - we win the game?

Can we have the examples of when it has happened to Celtc? Was that when Griffith's stayed on the park for the stamp? or an opposition player sent off in the same game when the player hadn't the ball under control? or the 3 players offside in the final? or the 4 players on yellows committing further bookable offences in the Xmas game and not seeing red? or the forearm smash totally ignored? or the number of fouls before a yellow is given? And on and on and on and phuckin on.

Open your eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s the small things I notice that they know what’s going on,watch Lennon after the last old firm game he was as happy as Larry,no anger no rage actually said the best team lost,when any of his players are in the spotlight for the compliance officer he gets angry we will fight this slur with everything we have,he said the same after the final,this is a clown of a manager that they couldn’t get rid quick enough,he shouldn’t be any way near that job,he is though because they are totally in control of whats going on in Scottish football,and if gerrard doesn’t start to highlight these refs he will pay for it as fans won’t and when the fans give up he will be gone,you need to fight fire with fire,what have we got to lose,another season like this ..no thanks

"Simple as that" o_O it really isn't that simple. Its not easy to stick 3 or 4 goals past every side so the referee becomes irrelevant. If Beaton does his job correctly then the equaliser doesn't stand - that has a huge bearing on the game.

On reflection and watching Alfies goal several times this reminds me of the incident in 2007 where Iain Brines invented a handball to stop the sheep getting a late equalizer at the piggery. That decision acted as the catalyst for them going on a run and winning the league due to us crumbling under a horrific fixture list as we received no help on our way to Manchester.

This has that same feel. A late winner chopped off for nothing to hand them the title yet some still don’t get it.

We don't get 50/50 decisions we are lucky if we get the 60% ours 40% opposition we are refereed differently .
Opposition teams are allowed to persistently foul without bookings or sending offs against us, even when it is blatantly obvious, marginal offsides are given against us and blatant offsides are allowed to stand against us, we lost a league cup with 3 paedohider players offside.
We are hammered by the officials when others are not, the players know it, the supporters know it our management knows it.
What we are up against is what's been stated here the exact opposite is applied to the paedohiders from the east end and anyone who says this is not happening is either a liar or a gullible stupid bastard.
