    A truly woeful decision to disallow Benkovic’s goal, tonight. Can’t for the life of me see how it was perceived as a foul.

    What stuns me is the attitude of the media, and in particular BBC Sport !


    "..Benkovics attempt was disallowed after a tug in the box.."


    Journalists ? * the Beeb, arselicking twats trying to ingratiate themselves with the Scum.

    If the honest mistakes of late (the last week) were rectified we would be 2 points better off (Benkovic 2nd goal would have killed Mwell off) and the Huns would have 2 points less (morelos offside winner vs Hearts). Equating to a 4 point gap for us with a game in hand.

    It is what it is however. The refereeing in this country is shocking and that won’t change.

    And this is after seeing replays. Any * thinking VAR is going to be some sort of silver bullet for this is kidding themselves on.

    Let's knock this * about "standard of refereeing" as if it applies equally to every team. It doesn't.

    These "honest mistakes" are always for the benefit of whatever manifestation of the Rangers franchise is in current existence.

    This is the problem...If the refs were just as brutal every week over every match then you would just believe that they are bad and inconsitant,however the problem is that it seems to be Sevco that avoid a lot of the big game calls,and thats why all other teams in scotland have a right to be wary of this...it isn't paranoia.

    Look at the games over the last 2-3 years alone,and thats obviously missing out the cadete incident and dougiegate.....So many of these decisions just go for that mob near every week.

    Nearly every single game this season for that mob have had a decision that has benefited them...and when they have something against them either the game is already over or the other team has had so many against them in that game.

    Aberdeen the other night was a disgrace,as was the hearts game.One thing is for sure,we have our work cut out this year,we need to be on our game every game now and stop missing so many chances.

    Guys, this is not an "either/or" situation here. :giggle1:

    They're all atrociously bad and some of them are also biased. Take mini-Dallas at the weekend. He's clearly biased; but he's so useless he still screwed that up, giving us a phantom penalty that never was.

    The fact that he was fast-tracked by daddy's friends, daddy in turn having had to leave his own post because of bigoted emails, tells you everything you need to know about our refereeing system. Nepotism and bigotry... a winning recipe.

    F*** 'em, though. We're still winning everything in sight domestically in spite of them, so we can laugh at them for now.

    Without reading previous posts, my opinion has always been the same for years.

    Rangers, and now Sevco, have always played with the wind at their back's with regards officials in this country.

    I don't think there is a conspiracy among referees, but I do think that individual referees are completely biased, either against us, or for them.

    I've always been of the opinion that if you are given a split second to make a decision, then almost every time you will give it in your best interests.

    Referees cheat in this country, that, in my opinion, is absolutely blatant. The very thought of VAR would both see them * themselves, and see a major change in "honest mistakes"

    VAR would change Scottish football more than the national game in any country in Europe.

    Of that I have no doubts.

    I would think that the powers that be will do all they can to keep VAR out. All this would happen while they publicly claim to be in favour of it.

    Let there midfield take turns in fouling Rogic mainly..

    Can't spot a blatant pass back..

    Forrest definitely brought down in the box 100%. No penalty..

    Guy tries to stop Ntcham on the break. Doesn't yellow Taylor after but booked Jozo and Izzy correctly for doing similar, although more robust..

    Shambles again, even though we won 5-1..
