With Nick Walsh as referee it is always worthwhile rolling over a few extra times.

Nine minutes into the second half an offside had already been awarded when Alfredo Morelos chased a ball going into the Hearts penalty box. Knowing that offside had been given Craig Gordon pulled out of swinging through at the ball.

Morelos has developed a very subtle knack of being able to find the slightest of contact from an opponent and making the most of it. As he rolls over and over he always finishes looking up towards the referee.

Walsh and his assistant had plenty of time to assess the incident, helped by Morelos rolling a few yards onto the pitch for treatment in front of the 1,200 visiting supporters.

Once the treatment was completed Walsh decided to book Gordon with two minutes taken out of play.

When Hearts visited Celtic Park 10 days earlier they got through the match with no yellow cards issued to players by Bobby Madden. On Sunday they had five players booked and Josh Ginnelly sent off for two yellows.

    No one in the media prepared to criticise this acting “cheating”… All silent eh

  • Joseph Mcaleer says:

    How long does this cheating go on,
    All clubs except one, need to call for a complete overhaul of the refereeing standards and personal.

  • Bottle Green says:

    Its now no longer about the predictability of Scottish Referee’s cheating to help Sevco Rangers – its now about the blatancy of the corruption and their obvious bias along with that of the SFA and SPFL including the most corrupt of them all Crawford Allan.
    Its high time all football supporters began a campaign to embarrass the lot of them.
    Lets draw attention to their corruption WORLDWIDE.
