Two words- Chris Sutton reacts as Scottish football moves towards VAR

Image for Two words- Chris Sutton reacts as Scottish football moves towards VAR

Chris Sutton isn’t quite on board the VAR bus that is on its way to Scottish football.

The former Celtic striker has spent many media hours battling over certain decisions which could soon be cleared up with a Video referee watching over every incident.

VAR came on the scene at the 2018 World Cup Finals in Russia and was quickly embraced by major leagues such as the EPL.

Scottish football has seemed reluctant to take it on board but with systems in place at Europa League matches at Celtic Park and Ibrox the excuses are wearing very thin.

Today the SFA hosted a meeting with Premiership clubs that seems to have taken the project further forward but there is still no timeline for the first VAR decisions in the Scottish game.

Who makes the remote decisions will be one of the big issues but with a maximum of six matches at any one time it shouldn’t be difficult to cover all fixtures from existing and recently retired referees.

    Correct, maybe Dundee Utd would have got the penalty they should have got 2 weeks ago, just another honest mistake though, from father Clancy.

    ED: LAST WARNING RON, KEEP THAT TYPE OF LANGUAGE FOR YOUR MARCHING CHUMS, REPEAT HERE AND YOU ARE A GONER.

      Nope, there was a bad foul leading up to that play that would have been called so no penalty for the Arabs. Sorry to disappoint. I would love to see VAR. Celtic have already lost points this year due to referees incompetence.

        Are you talking about the final where Helander played everyone onside?
        How did you react when your club died?
        Did you cry like a wee lassie?

      Would you have penalised Utd for the clear foul on Starfelt immediately before it, or would you have allowed that foul to be ignored, if you were the ref?

    The sevco stalkers are back joe time to do the same as the celtic blog and get rid.

    Sutton as usual short and sweet but bang on. Trust is not easy to give to this corrupt organisation so it is a very big if
