David Munro is a fairly new name on the Scottish refereeing circuit.
The Glasgow based whistler has already enjoyed lucrative European trips to Hungry and the Faroe Isles this season as a member of the elite FIFA list.
Yesterday he had to settle for his £900 match fee, generous mileage and expenses as he set the Sat Nav for Dingwall and the visit of Steven Gerrard’s fragile squad.
Early in the match Ross County swung in a corner from their left, as a home player headed the ball goalwards his effort was met by Leon Balogun in full windmill mode to clear the ball with his arm almost as soon as it had been headed.
Without flinching Munro blew his whistle, free kick to the visitors for reason unknown!
Later on in the match Munro did award the home side a penalty, last season it took until the 92nd minute of match 34 before a penalty was awarded against Gerrard’s side in the SPFL.
Between collecting fees from his very well paid hobby Munro is a manager with the GAP Group based in Glasgow.
Top class volleyball technique.

The norm where the rangers are concerned David,
Definitely a penalty in the opposition box, but then again thats no surprise when you find out Rangers season ticket holders are professional referees in Scotland.
? True story.

It’s not cheating it’s corruption. Definitely need to have their finances checked.

I’d have been chuffed to bits with myself had I pulled that off when I played goal defence at netball.
