ANDY WALKER has branded Steve Clarke ‘pathetic’ for asking the SFA to be consistent in their approach to the Scottish game.
The Kilmarnock manager didn’t hold back when he started rhyming off incidents from last weekends game, including a blatant dive by Jermain Defoe to win one of FOUR penalties the Ibrox club were given.
Clarke had a man missing for two games this season because he was found guilty of diving and believes if his players are to be accountable to the rules, so should everyone else.
Speaking about the Killie manager’s tirade the former Celtic player said:
“I think it is pathetic of any manager to want to get anyone else banned for two games,” Walker told SSN as reported by HITC.
“I understand he was upset when his player Jordan Jones was banned.
“In all honesty, my view is that it is a ridiculous system that we are looking at here. If the referee spots an act of simulation during the game, he gives a yellow card.
“But if he doesn’t see then you’re liable for a two-game ban. It doesn’t make sense – they system we have up here is completely wrong.”
Walker has cut a pathetic figure in Scottish football for many years now. He constantly runs down Celtic as a full-time gig and in co-commentary, he has applauded people for diving and fooling the ref.
