Just scanned through more bile. All his examples of injustice involve Rangers players...McGregor and Morelos (photo of the kick out at Aberdeen ) and the main photo of Morelos being sent aff. Bitterness at the most extreme dressed up as an attack on the whole system

Mind games and agendas mate, when bad things are to be talked about they put a picture of Ibrox or a Rangers player or a strip in the background it trying to get brains to think when you see the picture it will register as always bad news.

Yes, when he was playing for Scotland, so he couldn't attend the appeal

The first and last time the SFA did this, like a lot of things that happen to Rangers players
Like that time Rangers put in an appeal for Kenny Miller just before the deadline and the referee just so happened to be in the room by pure coincidence to reject it immediately.

This has been the press agenda for decades and certainly has been accelerated by the intrusion into the media and punditry by so many from a particular religious faith.
I remember it started to become glaringly evident after a Hearts game at Tynecastle where Rangers were awarded a penalty and the papers dedicated pages upon this single incident, with focus on the officials.

It has been relentless ever since, only calming when The Filth were winning everything in sight with Rangers out of the picture.
Now that it appears Rangers are competitive once more, the campaign is again being stepped up.

And.....NO, .............it doesn't turn our referees into cheats, it does however set a social background with a nasty deliberate intent that pressurises every referee at the most deeply instinctive and conscious level into making decisions involving both clubs with a measure of erring on the side of caution, that ensures the line of least resistance towards possible criticism by the press and media.
The fallout from this social grooming is that only one club benefits from decisions at crucial moments in a football match.

The fair play league table is evidence of this already and the amount of column inches in newspapers and minutes spent on sports programmes focussing upon these matters to the detriment of Rangers, should convince even the most sceptical in our support that there is no level playing field out there.
We can win this but make no mistake, we will be running uphill against the social narrative set by a totally skewed press and media, in accord with hostile Officiating bodies that hate our club's existence even as they love our supporters money.

And yet McGowan, like all the rest of these supposed " journalists", will never mention who instigated a ref strike in Scotland in 2010 due to open harassment and intimidation.

In a country where journalists value honesty and integrity more than tribal allegiance, the last two weeks furore over referee's led by Celtc, would have been evaluated against the fair play league table and Celtc's empty claims exposed to some journalistic ridicule.

That this never happened and thst no journalist has sought to use these facts in this fatuous debate tells us much about this country and everything about these journalists.

that game Rangers were very restrained. They complained via proper channels and got the red card rescinded.

It just goes on and on and on. We are bored by it but the tarriers cannot get enough of the same old thing day after day. They need to be slapped down at every opportunity to remind them of their true place in society.

There was no criticism of Beaton's handling of the game at Ibrox by anyone immediately after the match, not even by Rodgers. The all-on-message revisionism regarding Morelos began after the Sportscene highlights. Its all been embarrassing but not unexpected, tbh.

Someone at the BBC Scotland decided to push this agenda ,now whether they got a phone call from the east end as not I don't know,but it clearly changed. I would look at who is in charge of the Sports Department or Producer of Sports energy.

The red card for Alfie against the sheep was rescinded as the lines man admitted he didn,t have a clear view of the incident.something that McGowan fails to mention.
Just like Candeias second yellow at St Mirren was also for an incident that ref Collum never saw. McGowan doesn't mention either incidents where Rangers players were sent off for nothing, which says everything about his partisan style of " journalism".

There was an ethical in the record that mentioned that naismith was cited in the hearts vs Celtic game.but down,t mention the fact that Brown was cited as well.

Michael Stewart is the go to catalyst every time regarding us, referees and the Celtic supporting compliance officer.

All these clowns in the media used to annoy me, but I actually get a good laugh at them now. They are so transparent. I mean you could really write their sport's piece for them. Start of the season,same as the end Rangers = bad, the rest=good that's it. What actually makes me laugh is, they are just repeating the same old shite about the Rangers to themselves, and the manky mob in this little shitehole of a country. The big wide world ain't listening
