Rangers star Scott Wright was incredibly lucky last night to avoid a serious injury as a result of a woeful challenge by Ross County’s Jake Vokins – and the Scottish FA needs to take action despite Wright’s lucky escape.
Somehow, the Ross County star only picked up a yellow card for the late, high, crunching tackle from behind on Wright; and that’s something the Scottish FA need to be taking a look at as well.
Referee Andrew Dallas, making a rare appearance after opting to put his business interests ahead of his refereeing career, had an atrocious performance last night and, hopefully, it’s the last we see of him at Ibrox for a while.
With Wright enjoying a resurgence of form lately, the former Aberdeen star could be in line to start next week’s Europa League final clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.
However, as he lay on the Ibrox turf last night after being scythed down he won’t have been able to stop himself wondering if it was about to be cruelly snatched away.
