Rangers fans are not happy about some of the decisions coming out of the SFA at the minute. Darrell Currie feels the same way.
Firstly, Alfredo Morelos lost his appeal against his red card against Aberdeen. He was involved in a tangle with Scott McKenna, but despite the Dons defender being the clear aggressor in the situation, Morelos’ three-match ban was upheld.
Then, Allan McGregor was cited for a challenge on Lewis Ferguson. The keeper caught Lewis Ferguson on the shin in an incident deemed unworthy of a penalty by referee, Bobby Madden, at the time.
He reportedly learns his fate today, but is facing a two-match suspension if it doesn’t go in his favour.
Everyone else escaping punishment
On the same night the Gers were taking on Aberdeen, Celtic hosted Hibs.
After that game, compliance officer Clare Whyte looked at an incident where Jozo Simunovic clattered into Oli Shaw, but deemed further action unnecessary. Scott Brown was also only booked for a dangerous challenge in midfield.
Finally, at the weekend, came Allan Power’s challenge. The Killie midfielder caught Ryan Jack flush in the face with a raised boot.
Bears were perplexed that it wasn’t deemed worthy of a red card. Surely that would change after a review of the footage though?
There’s always a danger of getting carried away with things like this. Thinking the system is out to get your team.
Yet, the comments of journalist and TV presenter Darrell Currie, suggest Rangers fans are right to feel aggrieved.
So much inconsistency. So much confusion. No wonder managers, players and supporters are perplexed 👇 https://t.co/pStXdDJiIf

Consistency is the buzz word that players, managers, pundits and fans are looking for.
Yet, at the minute, the SFA are delivering anything but.
