Highlight of the night came when Anas Sarwar responded to another contrived Ross announcement by telling him that he is the gift to the SNP, sadly the cameras didn’t pick up on his reaction to that quote.
Most of Scotland only knew Ross as an overweight assistant referee until the election campaign got underway.
With an almost daily diet of his dull-as-dishwater comments and announcements it is clear that he is equally out of his depth in politics as he is with football.
At the weekend with a poor showing for the Tories expected Ross will have the consolation of his Westminster meal ticket to turn to topped up by lucrative appointments from the SFA in the Glasgow area.
Douglas Ross and the Tories are a gift to the SNP.

As much as Anas Sarwar’s “I’m the only adult in the room” schtick is tiresome I have to give him plaudits for ripping the absolute pish out of Douglas Ross at every available opportunity ????#BBCLeadersDebate

Douglas Ross is an absolute embarrassment of a human being, and a pathetic excuse of representation for my area. The entire tory manifesto is just anti-snp, instead of standing FOR anything.

Douglas Ross the clear loser in that debate.

I have come to the conclusion that Douglas Ross is not only incompetent at his role as a linesman but is an absolute fud as a politician. Anyone voting for him or his party needs their heads looked at.

Douglas Ross is so pathetically woeful I don’t think even Tories could like him #BBCLeadersDebate

No surprise to see Douglas Ross refuse to apologise for the chaos #Brexit has caused. A few weeks ago he couldn’t even bring himself to acknowledge it in Parliament.

Think Anas Sarwar detests Douglas Ross as much as anyone in Scotland; and rightly so!
Nicola still head and shoulder above the rest.

Might be my hatred for Tories but Douglas Ross is just so unrelatable it’s unbelievable. For me everyone’s comments on what they want to do after Covid was heartfelt except his. #BBCLeadersDebate #ScottishElections2021
