After the hysteria of Tom Boyd suggesting a referee who drinks in a Rangers pub may enjoy himself a little bit more in said Rangers pub after making a shocking call at the weekend – it’s now gone through the full Scottish football ringer and found its way to the compliance officer.
Yes, we’re now looking at the SFA delving into what’s being said by commentators during a game.
According to record sport, the compliance officer Claire Whyte will now look over Boyd’s comments about whistler John Beaton.
We’re in a universe where a referee can be seen socialising as a fan of Celtic’s Glasgow rivals – yet he continues to be allowed to officiate over both sets of clubs and don’t dare question is allegiance at any point.
The uproar to Boyd’s comments has been really quite something. Perhaps the compliance officer will look at the footage in question and pull in John to ask him why he missed a blatant penalty for Celtic. We won’t hold our breath.
