Willie Collum used his ‘interpretation’ of the Laws of the Game to keep Ryan Jack on the park at Ibrox today.
Just over a minute after sending Nicky Clark off the Lanarkshire referee decided not to reduce the match to 10 v 10 despite a brutal attack on Adam Montgomery’s ankle.
The Ibrox midfielder slid in late with a needless challenge that was always going to damage an opponent, Collum viewed the incident and decided that it was a booking.

Nick Walsh on VAR suggested that the match referee should take another look, Collum checked the pitch-side monitor and stood by his decision
Jack will be available for Wednesday’s match at Tynecastle instead of serving a suspension.
Away to Hibs in August Collum sent off John Lundstram and Alfredo Morelos. The Lundstram red card was overturned on appeal, today at Ibrox Collum made sure that there was going to be no repeat.
