Kevin Clancy will referee Sunday’s Glasgow derby.

It’s the second time this year that he has been put in charge of this fixture- in April at Ibrox he had a shocker when he failed to send off Jon Flanagan for elbowing Scott Brown in the face.

Clancy decided that the attack was only worth a yellow card. The SFA Compliance Officer upgraded it to a red but the former Liverpool defender won his appeal with the red card downgraded to yellow.

That little episode seemed to sun up disciplinary matters within Scottish football.

Celtic have been on the receiving end of two major incidents of misjustice this season- both involved Clancy.

Away to Hibs on September 28 Mortitz Bauer and Ryan Christie were both clearly fouled in the penalty box but on both occasions Clancy waved play on. Clancy’s next appointment was on October 20.

Celtic have dropped points in two matches this season- Clancy refereed 50% of those games.

Last season he felt that a word of warning was sufficient for Dolly Menga head-butting Christie, the SFA Compliance Officer issued a retrospective red card for a match that ended 0-0.
