In the aftermath of another Rangers victory and another clean sheet to bring the title one step closer, a noisy section of Celtic fans online have reached for the conspiracy theory….again.
In the first half of last night’s game, Kemar Roofe was involved in an incident with St Johnstone’s Murray Davidson that quite possibly should have been a red card for the Gers frontman.
Roofe attempted to shield the ball and turn his body, but the incoming Davidson came across his path and in the motion he was caught on the inside of his left leg.
Not too long after, the long-serving Saints midfielder hobbled off the pitch with an injury to his right leg, seemingly pointing to a calf problem.
Of course, Ianis Hagi’s superb solo goal won the game for Rangers but for plenty of Celtic fans watching on, that was not enough.
After nine years of almost uninterrupted success, you would think that the wild accusations of conspiracies and plots would settle down but it doesn’t look like it.
Another 3 points for Sevco when they should have been down 10 men and probably another retrospective ban and no punishment for the official in charge. We never had a chance this season. Anyone but Celtic… 🙄 🍀 pic.twitter.com/lFnDUtcsks

For all the mess that Celtic are in, The Rangers have probably been awarded at least ten points by referees in terms as well as escaping all Covid rules.
This is the most corrupt season in my lifetime and I've seen a few.

If the games in which Sevco scum @RangersFC have not had legitimate pens awarded against them and the 5 red cards they should have had been fairly officiated then they would not be as far ahead… Even though we have been beyond shite they have still needed ref corruption

However, these things often work out the other way…
Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don't.

The controversial recent incidents that were not punished with a red card from Brown, Kilmala, Edouard and Ralston could be displayed and highlighted, but it really doesn’t matter.
It’s over, almost done. The league flag is coming home.
The only ‘stop the ten’ evidence that matters is Rangers relentless form this season.
