The introduction of VAR is facing a further delay with a vote on the innovation being put back from February until April.
Scottish football is the biggest league in UEFA that doesn’t use the technology which was introduced at the 2018 World Cup Finals in Russia.
Last summer Hampden Park was kitted out with VAR for four matches at the European Championships with goal-line technology in use at last season’s Scottish Cup Final between Celtic and Hearts.

There seems to be no obvious obstacle to bringing in VAR which has operated at Celtic Park and Ibrox this season for UEFA matches.
In October clubs held a Hampden summit with Howard Webb explaining the latest technology which has evolved since being introduced to the EPL in season 2018/19.
At least once a month there appears to be ’VAR storms’ last month referee chief Crawford Allan went on Radio Scotland to discuss a goal scored by Kyogo Furuhashi against Hearts.
