    Red Cards, Rangers and Referees

    Red Cards, Rangers and Referees

    Welcome to the "Get Involved Referee" podcast. In this episode, we explore the concept of a "clear and obvious" red card and whether referees are getting it right.
    We also discuss the recent controversial incident where Rangers were not penalised despite a clear red card offence on Sunday. We ask whether this is a trend impacting the league's credibility and whether more needs to be done to ensure fairness and consistency in refereeing decisions.
    Furthermore, we tackle the issue of referees getting involved in the game and its impact on the outcome. We reflect on Willie Collum's decision to send off a Hearts player against Celtic and ask whether referees should be more impartial and let the game play out without their influence.
    Finally, we preview the upcoming big game at Ibrox between Rangers and Celtic and discuss the referee appointed for the match. Will they be able to handle the pressure and make the right calls? Tune in to find out. Join us as we explore the fascinating world of refereeing in football and get involved in the conversation.
