CELTIC have two big games coming up in the SPFL.
The bhoys welcome Hearts to Parkhead on Wednesday night before a trip up north to Aberdeen on Sunday.
These are the games Celtic need to lay down their marker and make sure they get the three points. Considering these are the two sides the Ibrox club spilled four points against recently, the psychological edge Celtic would have from winning both ties would be huge.
Going into the two games we can now reveal BOTH referees for the club’s next two games and there’s potential for controversy.
The SFA confirm both appointments:
Willie Collum takes charge for Celtic vs Hearts on Wednesday night and will be tasked with calling it down the middle. Collum has been a mixed bag for Celtic but in general the whistler has not left many stadiums with either side raving about him
As for the Aberdeen game, we get Andrew Dallas, son of former referee Hugh Dallas who was eventually ousted from a position in the SFA for sharing unsavoury emails about Catholic faith. Dallas ended up settling an unfair dismissal case with the inept organisation according to the BBC back in 2011.
Neil Lennon and the support know we can’t rely on referees and must make sure we put games out of sight so there’s room for error on their part.
