VAR is a must for next season for Scottish football. Rangers board need to push this big time. Referees in this country are simply awful and make too many mistakes. VAR will solve this. This does not excuse the Rangers players who have let the fans and the club down big time. The performances since the winter break have been a disgrace and have gifted them the title. Gerard needs to also take responsibility for a number of awful decisions and performances since the Stranraer game.

Don't forget, VAR works both ways. If Alfredo is still here when and if it is introduced, he would play about one game in ten. As much as I love him for his goals, he is a cheating wee ned.

Completely agree with everything youve said Stevie. A year ago I would have been one that said "dont give me any excuses about poor refs, it evens itself out" I still don't want to use it as an excuse but the officiating is absolutely shocking. VAR would sort this so let's take it out the refs hands. The fact of the matter is that we are not good enough though to make poor refereeing a non factor. Poor refereeing doesn't make our players run less, create less chances or make stupid defensive mistakes.

A quick other point. I find it disgraceful and disrespectful for some on here to refer to SG as the "celebrity". He is a big name worldwide in football because he had a superb career as a player. Calling him "celebrity" insinuates that he is more interested in the fame than doing a good job and this is not the case. SG has a lot of learning to do as a manager and he is certainly making a lot of mistakes and not learning from them. Same tactics, lack of ability to change and poor team selection at times are hurting him badly. He won't be sacked because we can't afford to pay him and his staff their 4 year contracts so we need to get behind him. We have no option. Criticise constructively, offer opinions of course but no need to get personal with this "celebrity" crap. If anyone genuinely believes he's more interested in the fame that comes along with his position and past than doing a good job then i for one wholeheartedly disagree with your opinion. The guy is making mistakes yes but i know he's working as hard as he can.

I've said umpteen times that VAR is the only way to go. I was thinking long and hard about this last night and apart from the Goldson incident last week with the handball, I can't think of any other decision we have had in our favour. The 2 Celtic games (The LC game and the 29th Dec) were littered with errors, all against us, and there have been many, many decisions go against us in other games. Last night there was the Dicker dive, holding his face in the box - no 2nd yellow card, the clear handball in the lead up to their equaliser and the manhandling of Tavernier which is a yellow card 10 times out of 10 (obviously unless our players are fouled) . And the foul on Kent by Burke as he raced in on goal was a red card and a free kick in a dangerous area, though some might question the fact that Kent should have been stronger and muscled his way on to the ball. I played up front for a spell and I can guarantee that I would have got on the end of that ball. Might not have scored but I would have got an attempt on goal! The Morelos disallowed goal was a push and probably rightly ruled out imo. Mark Hateley would have muscled out the defender and bulleted that one in to the net no problem. I agree with the comments on Morelos regarding the silly cheating incidents. Last night he did the exact same as in the Celtic game. Why can't he just stay on his feet and have a lash at the ball? If he had done that at Parkhead the ball might just have flown in past big Lurch. Because of that he was banned for 3 games and since he came back he has struggled to find the groove again. All that said, I didn't think the performance was that bad. It is a hard venue with the pitch and everything and most clubs usually struggle there, including the other lot. Aribo slips a split second before he shoots, Arfield misses by a foot or so and Morelos hits the bar.
Some decent luck and VAR would be a good start.
