Even if he is right ?

 

He's not even right. 

He maybe has a right to feel aggrieved and disagree with decisions. He has no right to ask for special treatment for Kilmarnock on the basis of imagined bias.

 

The repeated suggestion from killie fans that mcclean was biased towards cosgrove is just nuts. He already sent him off this season for nothing.

As you will see from my posts in this thread I am pretty even handed about the whole thing. I would suggest that Cosgrove wasn't sent off if McLean knew he had fucked up in the game you are talking about as it would have been in the bavk of his mind, he 100% should have been off as Broadfoot & Findlay rightly were.

Steve Clarke’s hearing should be interesting, charged with inferring that the referee was incompetent or biased?
I defy anyone to watch that entire game and not believe The referee was one or the other.
I have no great disagreement with the cards, another referee may not have felt the need for them but Mr McLean had obviously decided to act on the letter of the law on every occasion, but only against one team.
Sam Cosgrove being the most blatant example when he gets booked, has a second bookable tackle a minute later and then gets Findlay in a headlock a minute after that.
Incompetent or biased ?

Apparently SC has Paul Gilroy QC representing him at the hearing again......

Yes.

I don’t have a problem with him criticising his performance and I agree with killie fans on a lot of their complaints, but you can’t publicly question his integrity and request he doesn’t do killie games. That’s not on.

Fwiw, I agree. SSC isn't stupid, he knows that any punishment will be minimal & he won't mind being banished to the stands for a few games as it will allow Lord Dyer to spread his wings for a bit. The next time the rugrat referees a Killie game just watch all those 50/50 decisions go our way as he subconsciously proves he is not biased against us as a result of his family connections. It is classic Mourinho.

It won’t be minimal though. He already has two games suspended which will be brought into play when he is found guilty, plus at least another three or four, as what he said about McLean is about as bad a thing to say about a referee by a manager as is possible.The thing Clarke is thinking is that he won’t be in the Scottish leagues next season, so he doesn’t care.

Yes, I'm sure that's exactly what he's thinking.

Our manager said to Levein privately that it's best not to complain about refs as it seem to make decisions on next game worse. We certainly had that with Willie Collum.

...you have the cheek to criticise a team with 6 or 7 players out, no confidence after last week, kids on the bench, needing to grind out any sort of result - yet your lot practically at full strength, at home, were just as brutal to watch than us.

 

You’ll have to beat one of the Glasgow teams to finish above us. Can’t see that happening.

See your lot lost to both, that went well.

That's nothing to do with whether you beat either though?

For all he is a seething shambles, maybe both clubs shouldn't underestimate how key MacGregor's late save off Kamberi (just before his kung-fu) may end up being.

With Hibs six points behind both - sneaky away wins for both Embra clubs at the weekend could have left things tight with AFC going to Easter Rd and Kilmarnock playing Sevco on the last day. 

Now all the 4th place side has to worry about is Hearts winning the cup final at odds of maybe 5/1.  Not impossible given Lennon's erratic Hampden record, but relatively unlikely.

Still, all to play for in the remaining two league matches, and maybe dandies can now come out of their post semi-final sulks and get behind the patchwork side for the last couple of matches - as Saturday showed that Kilmarnock are right up for it.....
