Three of the SFA’s most under fire referees will be in the front line this weekend with SPFL appointments.
Match appointments are generally agreed a month in advance with the details published a week before games.
First into the firing line is Andrew Dallas, picking up his third match fee in seven days when he takes charge of the Livingston v St Mirren match on Saturday.
With a Europa League tie expected next week, two Premiership matches and a cup final match fee Christmas should be very merry for the family from Bonkle.
Hugh’s wee boy had a dismal day at the Betfred Cup Final at Hampden and followed that up with a bizarre penalty decision for St Johnstone last night, described by Craig Levein as softer than soft.
Willie Collum, who the tribute act belief has ‘an underlying issue’ will be next up for Levein’s critical eye, taking charge of the Hearts v Motherwell match.
At New Douglas Park, Bobby Madden who was described as abysmal by Craig Levein on Sunday, will referee the Hamilton v Hibs match.
Nick Walsh will referee Celtic v Kilmarnock while Alan Muir will be in charge for Dundee against the new Rangers club on Sunday.
