    I wonder if the Thistle player making the most of it swayed the referee last night.

    100% penalty though.

    Just seen the highlights of the Rangers game, god that defense is beyond awful, Alves ffs, would rather have Glen Loovens. Heard the sending off was ridiculous though.

    No it wasn't. Jack pushed his head into Stokes and thats what the ref saw. Still beyond belief that he showed the red but I think replays will show why he did it.

    Gordon Dalziel absaloutely hammering Rangers on clyde, saying Hibs were in control before the sending off. Rangers fans backing him up so far.

    The worst referee performance i've ever witnessed at Ibrox.

    I still don't know why Jack got sent off.. and if it was for 'violent conduct' Anthony Stokes should have been off 8mins into the game.

    He got sent off for putting his head into Stokes. Even though there was not much contact the ref seen what he thought was an attempted headbutt. There were quite a few players from both sides raising their hands today.

    I understand that. If that is the case, then Stokes should have been sent off 7mins into the game. McGeouch should have been off for getting involved unnecessarily. A yellow card would have been fair if Jack received a yellow, but that wasn't the case. McGeough also was persistent fouling as well.

    From where i was sitting, Stokes and Jack touched heads.. which would have resulted in Stokes getting another card, and he would have been off.

    The referee had a nightmare if you are going to be card happy then you have to be consistent in the decisions.

    On the referees, one thing people seem to be forgetting about last night's game was a perfectly good Brown goal being chopped off, the whistle went before it went in so I am guessing that's why there is no uproar but it was going in regardless.

    Still don't see how there was a foul leading up to it.

    Of what I've seen, Stokes should have been off too.

    One decision.

    The Schalk penalty. One dodgy decision does not even up dozens of pish decisions in your favour.

    Please, County have an open invitation to kick our players up and down the park, in that match with the Shalk incident Sinclair was batters from pillar to post.

    Was that the same game when Brown got a red card for a tackle that anyone else would have been booked for? The same game when one of their midfielders went in from behind with no intention of playing the ball and stayed on?

    Stokes should have been off. Don't care what anyone says. Especially with Jack getting sent off.

    The more I see those Hibs goals yesterday the more I think 5 goals will be repeated against them.

    Pace and power running at them and they are all over the place.

    You'll be telling me the Partick penalty shout was a dive next.

    That Club 1872 statement regarding Neil Lennon is utterly embarrassing.

    Before that game yesterday there will have been thousands of Rangers fans licking their lips and salivating at the prospect of throwing every bit of vitriolic abuse at him (which they of course went on to do) but when they get a bit back they throw the toys out the pram.

    I've never been a great fan of Neil's style if truth be told, but I hugely admire his overall character not to curl up into a ball when faced with the venom he gets at ibrox.

    For the likes of Chris Graham and his cohorts to cry foul over this is beyond ridiculous and I can guarantee that the same people probably found Laffertys gesture last weekend to be highly amusing.

    These folk need to get a life, and that applies to any set of fans who can't handle getting a wee nod or gesture in their direction.

    If you give it out, expect to get it back imo :shrug

    I don't like Lennon and i never will, but at the end of the day it's just bantz.

    What Lennon did is just letting his abusers know they are not hurting him and he wont let them win.

    Sometimes it could be better to let it roll of your shoulder and try to ignore it but why should he and maybe the authorities in Scotland should stop ignoring it and start making sure guys get lifted from the stand as they get lifted out in the street if they shout the sort of stuff he has to listen to.
