The scandalous penalty decision at Tynecastle has not only gone unexplained, but the two men responsible for it – Walsh and McLean – have been rewarded for it by getting the next game at Ibrox, the one against Aberdeen.
Talk about foxes getting control of the chicken coop.
Aberdeen should be raising Hell behind the scenes.
This time Walsh will be behind the camera and McLean will be on the pitch.
Not that this changes much, as both are equally bad. But this is what we’re dealing with.
Aberdeen are going to royally screwed in that game. Nothing is surer.
Whether you accept that there are serious questions about the neutrality of these guys or not – even if you think the idea is screwy – it is plainly ridiculous to hand this pairing such a high profile game when they have been jointly responsible for such an appalling error.
It is nothing short of rewarding incompetence.
It may be rewarding something much worse.
Nothing could demonstrate the SFA’s contempt for clubs more than this.
Aberdeen already knew they would be up against it.
If they don’t raise their concerns before the game they will certainly not be able to do it afterwards. Ange has made our feelings clear and this is the SFA response. Moaning after the fact is pointless.
You can see a mile away how this one is going to go. There have to be people at that club who recognise what’s happening here. With the Ibrox club reeling it’s Operation: Save The Season in full swing.
If they aren’t fully aware of that they deserve what they get.
