Nick Walsh is a sneaky wee rat.

He books Devlin for his terrible foul he doesn’t play the same way he did, same with any of Shinnie’s first four out his eight fouls.

We had to take Cantwell off at Hampden because Walsh booked him within the first half hour.

The week before in the league against Hearts they took their full back off immediately after he pulled back our player 3 times in the one run because he was on a booking.

Folk underestimate the effect of an early booking.
Also they underestimate the effect letting the kickings go on without any repercussions. It encourages players to leave a foot in, to commit fouls they normally wouldn't do.

Then you commit the same fouls against the scum and the card is out right away. The players become much less likely to tackle, more passive. The game then flows the way they want. Ours are constantly getting broken down.

You don’t get it do ya ..he never blamed him for the result he’s saying he’s part of a problem

Thank you

it’s pretty sad in this day and age folk are still struggling with literacy, they read but can’t understand what they have read and worse still take time to post a reply making them look even more stupid, even worse the folk that like their posts. It smacks of the facebook maws, cat missing Bournemouth, shared Maryhill Shazza xx

There are hundreds of threads created daily on various topics, why can’t they just comment on the actual subject matter
 
He is a sneaky wee rat. He was not giving us a penalty even though he was looking straight at the guy pulling Goldson's jersey. He was 10 yards away at most. This is where VAR plays its part in making sure these cheats get caught out. No VAR and he gives nothing. He had to give it. It was a blatant shirt pull. And he saw it.
 
He was good before the league cup semi last season, since then it’s as though he’s trying to overcompensate giving the opposition decisions against us.

Say what you want about the celtic operation- but it is producing results for them
 
He’s not really gave me great cause for concern but I don’t trust any of the officials in the SPL implicitly…pro sellick rats and shitebags are a problem for us in this country, no doubt about it. I keep a close eye on the refs AND the linesmen and of course VAR isn’t 100% trustworthy and is a bit of a pain but it is getting calls spot on and proving it’s worth and just as well because Walsh was looking straight at the jersey pull incident and didn’t blow his whistle and I reckon he cut the game short by about 3 minutes also because we had them pinned back in their own box in the latter stages. We have to watch most of these guys very closely because cheating and dirty tricks does occur.

To the OP let’s leave the always cheated never defeated to the other mob. Biggest problem for us not winning games is the team not taking a few of the many chances we create. The stats on Sunday for what they are worth was complete domination almost. We could easily have won the game by 5 goals with the number of great chances we had.

Our other Achilles heel is our defence being prone to a mistake or two at the worst possible time. We have a couple of guys who in there head they are better players than they actually are and in any other era would have been moved on and replacements bought
 
How folk on here reckon he is the best in Scotland is mystifying. He was fair his first half dozen games in the top flight, till he got his feet firmly under the table and has reverted to celtic supporting type.

He has refereed 2 celtic games this season, given them a penalty in each straight off the bat. How VAR never overturned the one at Tynecastle is an even bigger mystery.

He awarded 30 fouls against their opposition but only 17 against celtic. He has booked 6 opposition players, 2 Ross County players within the first 39 minutes, but only one celtic player over the entire 2 games in 93rd minute at Tynecastle.

We have suffered him 4 times this season, 2 of the 3 penalties we have been awarded were by VAR. Totally ignored by him in the first instance.

He has awarded 53 fouls against us over these 4 games, an average of 13.25 per game, we average 9.3 in the others he wasn’t in charge of, over 40% more than average, Celtic over 10% less.

He has managed to book 4 of our players in the first half of games. It’s happened only one other occasion in the 16 domestic games this season.

He continually allows free hits on our players, Devlin’s yesterday a prime example. How Shinnie got through 90 minutes without a card is another mystery.

We have only won 4 out the last 7 of our matches he has been in charge of.
I genuinely think Walsh has been influenced by the “Penalty to Rangers” conspiracy theorists such that he’s reluctant to give us even stone wall decisions these days!
 
I genuinely don't think he did much wrong yesterday, he was giving the Aberdeen players it tight, there was nothing really that swayed the game either way for me. He was advised to check the VAR for our penalty, recognised his mistake and corrected it. I can only call it as I see it. We let ourselves down more importantly yesterday, not Walsh.
 
The spin about Rangers getting 'dodgy' penalties from VAR is simply because the dark side and their media puppets are gutted that Rangers are now being refereed more fairly. VAR would not be needed for Rangers penalties as often as it is - were it not for referees being too scared to award them to Rangers in the first instance. It is why VAR is essential up here for a more even playing field and they just cannot handle it!
This all day long ^^^^^^

He could easily have booked him again on Sunday for his ‘attempt’ to win a penalty.

When your tactics or plan is to let Aberdeen fouls and possible cards go then you probably have to even up a little. Maybe he missed it we are always told they are terrible refs that miss everything when its the opposition.

If our players behave the way Aberdeen did there is not much doubt we pick up quick or early cards that can have a huge effect on the game. It happens in every fixture against Aberdeen and plenty of others. Celtic play the same teams and they are feart to make a challenge as the official wont mess around.

I have to say, what is happening with the boss, he has had enough time to watch both our games and the tims and see how the rules are bent. If we have another management team that does like to speak about match officials bending rules, nothing changes.

You seriously need to get out more man and spend less time on here. It's clearly doing you no good at all.

He was looking right at it and didn't give it. It was less a case of recognising his mistake as being told he fecked up. If he had been on VAR I doubt we would have got it.
 
I reckon he is probably the best we have in Scotland. I don't for one minute think that refs at that level make calls on any basis other than how they see them.

These guys all want to get to the top and ref the biggest games going, they're not going to deliberately make bad calls that jeopardise 900quid a game a couple of times a week and flying all over Europe for Uefa games.

However, they'll all have prejudices they need to overcome, some will over compensate trying to correct it.

Walsh is 100% a Celtic fan though and used to have a season ticket at CP. His old man still has one, he's been there to see them on the rare weekend he doesn't have a game.

I've since heard that Walsh has been saying yesterday that he didn't want to give a penalty as he felt that Goldson dived (which was after the tug so don't know what his point is). But he had "no choice" with the discussion that took place on VAR. He wasn't happy about it yesterday.

So whoever said that we wouldn't have gotten it without VAR is correct.

He made a massive call sending of callum mcgregor when we scored against Celtic at Ibrox and again made a massive call awarding the penalty on Sunday desire the pressure from every angle in Scottish football. Not saying he's a brilliant ref but one that I think is fair

Spot on.
 
Booked 10 players sent off one, but was calculated in how he dispersed cards to 7 celtic players.

Bernardo twice caught Goldson late with his studs, the first one the usual free hit on our players the second as clear a yellow as you will see. Rodgers all but admitted he took him off as he knew he should have been off.

Johnston clearly leads with his arm it was a clearer booking than the one Sterling got recently for an innocuous challenge. A booking in every other game in the world.

He just chip, chips away, nothing huge but all the little things add up and change the course/momentum of games.

spot on. Dont be fooled by his late flurry of bookings. If he does his job, they are down to 9 men

Did you also notice the way he pulled us up for throw ins but they had carte blanche to walk the length of the pitch to take them.

Their ball boys are instructed to give them the ball yards up the park from where the ball went out, they then wander another 10 or so up the park before actually taking the throw in. Taylor had stole over 10 yards numerous times, Tav stole 2 yards and was stopped from taking a quick throw in. All the small game disrupting actions to prevent us maintaining momentum by Walsh. Similar when not playing advantage when we are on the break and he brings it back for a nothing offside.
 
I reckon he is probably the best we have in Scotland. I don't for one minute think that refs at that level make calls on any basis other than how they see them.

He absolutely shafted Rangers yesterday. His performance was appalling
 
To think
Hugh Dallas had his windows put in for less these cheating scumbags shouldn’t be safe to walk the streets.

He's constantly at it with things like this, nothing major in the grand scheme of things but all these wee minor decisions add up and change how the game pans out.

Taylor must have stolen about 10 yards every time he had a throw in but he pulled us back a couple of times for taking 2 yards. One time the ball went out and bounced straight back off the ad board to where the ball went out, he still allowed them to steal 10 yards.

And don't even get me started on letting their wall stand in front of the free kick line...
 
spot on. Dont be fooled by his late flurry of bookings. If he does his job, they are down to 9 men
This is my biggest gripe about yesterday. We all know the handball would eventually have been offside (the issue is that they didn’t look at that at the time) and that our best chances fell to our worst player.

They simply should not have been allowed to have that many on the park.
 
This is the Catch 22 we find ourselves in. We speak out, we are as bad as them. If we say nothing we support a dignified silence approach and hope things come good.
What would you suggest we do?

Demand foreign referees.

Its staring us in the face.

Scottish referees can’t be impartial, celtic supporting referees are hardwired to give celtic every benefit of the doubt, Walsh, Clancy, Collum, Robertson, etc.

non celtic supporting referees go out their way to ensure they give us virtually nothing, Beaton, McLean probably the worst of the lot was Madden, as they are fearful of repercussions

We managed to do it during the celtic enforced referees strike. It is for the betterment of the game. Will actually help our teams in Europe too having referees who play to the laws of the game, not made up Scottish rules.
 
A depressing read.

And yet we’ll still have people wanting to remain silent and not use “excuses”.

Walsh was named during the yahoo AGM. The authorities fail to protect their refs.

I agree with your points mate, but you would then be accused by neutrals as being as bad as them for voicing an opinion for change to what we deal with now.

It's a cnut of a situation. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
 
In the last ten or so minutes when we actually had a go at them why did Walsh not once pull them up for time wasting. Every free kick,throw in or bye kick was used to waste time and the wee bassa ball boys who were so quick to give them the dall for quick throws just disappeared.
Another form of cheating the celtic way.
 
Genuinely think years ago they realised they had to get as many celtic supporting officials in as possible,it's in the nature of the poet to cheat and lie.I could tell you 5 officlas right now that support celtic no question,how many can you honestly say support Rangers.No bad for a so called downtrodden minority
 
Best in Scotland some on here reckon

4 Celtic games this season he has been in charge of. 4 penalties to celtic. 4 denied for their opposition.

The latest less than a week ago, 4 penalty decisions, 2 for both teams, all four decisions going in Celtic’s favour.

The difference is that the tabloid media, phone-ins and Sportscene don't pore over every game changing decision that goes their way. This from the cheat ref McLean at Aberdeen is just staggering, tbh.

I know for a fact he’s a Celtic fan as he is friends with a mate of mine - whether biased or not can’t confirm but definitely one of them
