NEIL LENNON urged the SPFL to introduce goal line technology for Scotland’s top flight after his side were denied all three points because of a very poor call by the officials.
Oli Shaw at the ball over the line against Hearts midweek, as replays show, it wasn’t even debatable and the goal should have stood with or without technology. However, the Irishman is adamant we now need to see this introduced because it’s embarrassing Scottish football.
“It’s well over the line,” Lennon said. “It’s a goal, everyone can see it, and you can tell by the way the ball comes out at the angle it does.
“I know we’re on about video refereeing. Sky are here, if the fourth official goes and looks at a monitor he can say: ‘By the way, that’s a goal’.
“This is a huge game. It’s live on TV and it’s making a mockery of the game sometimes.”
An SPFL spokesman hit back at Neil Lennon saying it was simply unaffordable.
“Goal line technology remains unaffordable for the SPFL. It would cost millions of pounds to install this technology at all Ladbrokes Premiership grounds.”
In the same statement, they totally contradict themselves and say they would support the measures if there was a large appetite to bring the technology in.
“It is something that we would be happy to embrace and support if there was a widespread appetite from our member clubs to do so.”
