3 qualified refs think that was fine. This is a big reason why our game is in the shitter
I’ll be honest, this doesn’t bother me. It should have been a red card at the time but a retrospective punishment does nothing to help us. I also don’t like the idea of re-reffing games in terms of missed tackles, the McGregor one last year was ridiculous. For me the retrospective action should be kept for diving and missed violent conduct
I said this to another guy the only similarity is they both got the ball Jack wasn't high and May only got hurt because he shat it.I'm not one for asking for statements - in fact I regularly take the piss out of people who do.
But in what way is the incident any different to Ryan Jack at Pittodrie, which was punished with a straight red card then failed at appeal? I've watched them both several times since the weekend and we're talking about literally the exact same thing - player plays the ball, natural momentum/swing takes his studs on to the opponent.
Either both are red cards for endangering an opponent, or nothing - just an accidental collision from the natural momentum.
So why's it only a fucking red card for the Rangers player? Surely this is something we've got to be asking?
A joke of a decision, but, in the present climate, not a surprise.
The narrative is always the same, ie Rangers player hung quartered and drawn through all media outlets, and diluted down for all the rest.
And, yet, we have fellow supporters on here saying that we are consistently paranoid and acting like tarriers regarding questionable decisions in games involving us, well it's not paranoia to me, its corruption plain and simple.
People on here dismiss the influence that referees will have on a league title.
How can anyone see this and still believe that?
The precedent has been set then, our players can now go in showing studs so long as they play the ball?
That really needs to be the question being asked by our Club, indeed by our Manager.
The similarity to the previous Jack incident, and the astounding contrast in how they've been dealt with should be raised, with the additional comment --"I have been asked by observers from outwith Scotland : was it because he was a Rangers player that he was treated with less integrity ?"
