Newcomer Grant Irvine showed how poor the standard of refereeing is at yesterday’s match between Aberdeen and Livingston. 

The Pittodrie match was his ninth Premiership match of the season but so far he hasn’t been appointed for a match involving either Glasgow club. 

Bobby Madden lowered the benchmark at Hampden last Sunday with his treatment of John Lundstram the ‘highlight’ of a performance that could best be described as puzzling. 

At Pittodrie Irvine watched Max Stryjek collect a cross then move towards the edge of his box before knocking Vicente Besuijen over before clearing the ball. 

The Dons forward was completely innocent but rather than award Aberdeen a penalty and send Stryjek off, referee Irvine opted to book both players. 

Irvine is clearly one to watch, in 2019 he was happy to support Specsavers in their sponsorship of Scottish referees. 

Kevin Clancy will referee today’s match between Ross County and Celtic.

    Showing his credentials as an incompetent half-wit early, the SFA will ensure he’ll be gifting penalties at the Govan midden before long…

    Ach, never mind, when VAR comes in the quality of refereeing in Scotland will be miraculously transformed … mibbe.

    The goalie clearly punched the Aberdeen player with the ball and knocked him over. The Aberdeen player did nothing at all and was completely innocent. This referee is a joke. Scottish referees AND the SFA are a pathetic embarrassment.

    C’mon Aberdeen, challenge this and make an example of this referee and show our club how to deal with this type of thing. Involve lawyers – that will scare the shit out of the SFA. Our Fergus McCann did not suffer these fools, making sure that the corrupt Farry was taken to task and sacked for his blatant and deliberate manipulations.

    Oh dear the shape of things to come,don’t be surprised to see him pick up a game between ourselves and the cheating klub across the water soon very soon.
