It was at the start of October when Kevin Clancy took charge of Celtic vs Hibs and had an absolute shocker of a game from start to finish for both sides. From a Celtic point of view he denied two stonewall penalties in the game for the Scottish Champions which did influence the final result.
We reported the week after the Easter Road game the whistler didn’t get a game in any Scottish division – pointing to perhaps some sort of punishment for not doing his job to even a mediocre standard. It appears the SFA referee’s department were simply letting the referee lie low, taking the heat off him before putting him right back into a top fixture after the international break.
Clancy will take charge of Hearts vs The Rangers at Fir Park on Sunday proving the SFA simply don’t listen and don’t care when one of there so called top referees put’s in an astonishingly below par performance. Should we be surprised? Probably not,
