Jack Ross hit out at Willie Collum after he refused to award Hibs a penalty at Ibrox today.
Trailing 1-0 to a first half goal from Ianis Hagi the Edinburgh side were pushing for an equaliser throughout the second half.
With Steven Gerrard’s men dropping deeper and deeper things got more desperate with Hagi striking Joe Newell when he attempted a head height clearance but struck the Hibs midfielder.
Soon after as Ryan Porteous jostled for position at a corner he was tripped by James Tavernier with Willie Collum deciding not to award a penalty at either incident.

Speaking to Radio Scotland Ross said:
Asked about the two penalty claims for his side…
“We should definitely have had one. It was difficult for me to see at the time but we’ve had a look back at the Ryan Porteous one and I don’t think there’s any doubt it’s a penalty kick.”
Today was the first time that Collum had been given an Ibrox appointment since September 2019.
In November 2018 the Ibrox club complained about his performance in a match against St Mirren and avoided having the Lanarkshire based official in charge of any math for six months.
Douglas Ross has been assistant linesman at four Ibrox SPFL matches this season.
