The Frenchman Returns

Reminded me of when we lived in Bathgate. Stayed at the old Academy which is above the town, we would open the windows and listen when the game kicked off. Normally heard the first sirens in the first half.

Shit teams like Hamilton & Ross county start winning when things get to the nitty gritty. They know how to scrap & survive. I wonder if Killie can get going again & avoid the drop.

Was just thinking about talking to Killie fans a few years back when they may have been sitting 2nd. They were genuine older guys.

Told them to enjoy the ride as long as Clarke was in charge.

I’m assuming that Livingston are a nasty bunch of dirty bar stewards going by the number of cards they’ve received.

Newco on the other hand are just a well coached  group of professional footballers.

Kind of get why he got the yellow, maybe even a straight red, but can't see why he got 2 yellows.

Ref expects you to shut up after you've been booked. Or what Beaton expects.

What a season Callchan is having. 10 goals in 25 games I think?

 

I'd take half a Ross Callachan in our team just now.

Rangers finished about 70% possession, you don't need to tackle when you have the ball.

Rangers only team trying to play football, if Livingston had gave half the effort they did tonight against Rangers, they would've been more than a match for St Johnstone their on Sunday. 

 

I'd be pissed if i was a livi supporter.

If I was a livi fan I’d be starting to wonder if Martindale is any good as a manager, time will tell I suppose.

Yeah i can't understand why their manager had Bartley playing out on the left, the only reason i can understand is he tried to stop Conway for St Johnstone, but Bartley got torn a new one. 

 

Which sums up Scottish football. 

 

Livi could've had a go what did they have to lose? 😂

You mean the vicious demeanour by pointing and saying you're bang out of order to the referee in front of the referee's colleagues, whilst only half way through the match.   I mean that's got to sting abit for anyone.   I could imagine myself sending him off.    I wasn't sure why he got a second yellow either but I think it must have been another throw away comment like useless so and so.   Or just repeated his bang out of order comment.   I couldn't hear it though.   I'm going back in for another listen.  Just for kicks. ☺

He was swearing at the referee constantly, that can get you a straight red. Not saying it should just that it could.

Gerrard was shown two yellow cards at half-time by John Beaton, who booked Morelos for diving after a challenge by Livingston goalkeeper Max Stryjek.

But Morelos netted with three minutes left to edge Rangers closer to glory.

"It's a stonewaller," Gerrard said.

"What I can't stand for at this level is three people making the same mistake. They all had clear views of it. I could see it and I'm the furthest away.

"They all got it wrong together - I can't have that. I asked for an explanation and [Beaton] refused to speak to me. You are talking about officials at a top level of the game."

 

 

...where have we heard that before! 🤣🤣🤣

A nice equaliser from St Johnstone last night. Bergkampesque!

Instead of ignoring any questions from managers, if put in a coherent, non abusive way, why doesn't Beaton just reply that he gave his decision based on what he saw from where he was? 

Just ignoring managers is only going to rile them even more, resulting in the red cards shown to Neilson and Gerrard.

Having said that, Gerrard only recently bemoaned the fact that refereeing decisions were being reviewed to Rangers' disadvantage. He was pushing for referees to be allowed to do their job without being undermined by tv analysis later. 

Ultimately, if players didn't try to cheat so often, the referees would have an easier job.

Sevco have appealed the yellow card. I dont think the appeal will be upheld. If it is then Gerrard will get off too.

I went to primary school at the Old Academy. Was an extension of Balbardie Primary at the time. Lovely old building that I couldn’t appreciate at the time. Always remember the pillars.

Just looked at the table and St Mirren in top 6, thought our last game of last season.

 

Got our act together and won, St Mirren relegated.

If your auntie had baws as the saying goes.

Rangers last league defeat was against Hamilton at Ibrox.

 

That and another win straight after saved Hamilton.

Footage and photos all over the place of thousands of cavemen gathered outside Ibrox just now celebrating their title. The police watching them and politely twiddling their thumbs so far.

Unbelievable what is going on.

The police standing around doing nothing.

No social distancing, no masks.

And I bet no action taken by anyone including the government.

Should get the batons and horses on them. Media slapping their backs but never mention the cheats run at a 15m a year loss.

But they can't officially win it until tomorrow if Celtic don't win v Dundee United
