It was business as usual for Hibs at Ibrox today as Don Robertson decided that they weren’t to take anything from today’s match.

Trailing 2-0 in the 72nd minute Ryan Porteous forced a point blank save from Allan McGregor then followed up to put the ball in the net. No goal.

Eagle-eyed Robertson spotted an earlier infringement and it was that sinking feeling for Hibs who did pull a goal back from Kevin Nisbet in the 78th minute.

Robertson has been an official on the rise since awarding Ross County an outrageous late penalty against Celtic five years ago. There was more than a yard of fresh air between Erik Sviatchenko and Alex Schalk when the County man hit the deck with Robertson obliging with a penalty.

At Ibrox in December Willie Collum missed two Hibs penalty appeals which fell into the ‘they’d have been given at the other end’ category. In January Kevin Clancy’s tangle of legs from Alfredo Morelos went unpunished, the Colombian scored the only goal of the game in the second half with even Steven Gerrard too embarrassed to appeal the retrospective red card.

Lanarkshire whistler Bobby Madden will be on duty at next week’s Ibrox cup tie.
