‘Call out this Ibrox paranoia’ ‘Embarrassing as usual’ ‘Dry your eyes’ Beale is slaughtered for calling out VAR call

A sensible manager knows the right battles to choose.

In 10 months at Ibrox Micky Beale has barely won a meaningful contest despite inheriting the Europa League finalists and being able to revive his incredible work with Steven Gerrard’s title winners.

Despite the introduction of VAR Beale has yet to see a penalty awarded against his side in an SPFL match with that run stretching back to January 2022 when Kevin Clancy found his decision prompted a letter of complaint to the SFA.

Twelve days ago against Celtic a VAR decision did go against Beale’s side when the technology picked up on a foul by Cyriel Dessers that was missed by Don Robertson.

As every manager knows each goal is reviewed before the match restarts with Alan Muir prompting Robertson to have a look on the pitchside monitor at the move leading to Kemar Roofe’s ‘goal’.

Various angles highlighted the foul committed on Gus Lagerbielke with the match restarted by Callum McGregor taking a free kick as the home fans did what they do best, boo.

In an ironic twist in the time added for the VAR check Kyogo Furuhashi scored the only goal of the game to pile the pressure on Beale starting with thousands of his own supporters inside Ibrox.

The day after the match there was the predictable leaking to media messengers of a letter sent to the SFA demanding answers over a very straightforward decision, the type that is made in almost every match.

Strangely there has been no follow up in the media who have been equally silent on Jack Butland and Connor Goldson pushing Kyogo Furuhashi to the ground inside the penalty box.

Beale twice brought up the disallowed goal at his media conference this morning but even the Gullible & Deluded could see through his ploy to deflect from his own multiple failings.

Bearsden PE teacher Nick Walsh will referee tomorrow’s match at St Johnstone with Gavin Duncan on VAR.
