MARK WILSON has upset some Celtic fans after admitting he was ‘surprised’ by Craig Gordon’s comments about officials being more transparent in our game.
The row rages on after a farcical start to the season for the SFA who have failed to punish several incidents of violence but have instead reinforced ludicrous sendings off by their own officials.
Craig Gordon merely pointed out the potential to make the whole system more transparent and suggested people declare their allegiance so they do not have a say in a club they support.
This is common practice in Europe and they have been doing it in yeard for England. A referee is not allowed to be in charge of a game if the team they support are playing.
With that in mind, Mark Wilson still says he’s surprised by the Celtic player’s comments and the former Hoops defender is taking a bit of stick for his comments on Clyde Superscoreboard.
The former Celtic man also appears on Celtic TV on a regular basis and some have threatened to cancel their subscription if he continues to appear on the Celtic network.
Some fans are simply calling him a sellout.
Mark Wilson says whatever gets him the biggest pay check https://t.co/sgHvVU7MTf

Mark Wilson's comments are the surprise. In every other country in Europe referees have to declare allegiance and are not allowed to officiate at matches involving that team. What has @ScottishFA got to be afraid of (other than Kevin Clancy having to ref every Rangers game)?

@CelticTV I take it for granted this guy will not be seen on Celtic TV again now if not subscription is cancelled
🔈Mark Wilson said he is 'surprised' by Craig Gordon's comments on the Judicial Panel and questioning their 'allegiances.'
