Loads of Rangers fans are unhappy with the appointment of referee Bobby Madden for this weekend’s trip to Celtic Park.
Steven Gerrard’s side make the short trip across the city to face off against Neil Lennon for the first time since Brendan Rodgers’ hilarious departure.
Currently ten points behind in the Scottish Premiership, we desperately need a win to keep our slim hopes of winning silverware this season alive.
That will of course be an immensely difficult task and some supporters feel it’ll be a lot more difficult considering Madden will officiate the match.
The last time he reffed an Old Firm derby he sent off one of our players and awarded two penalties to Celtic.
Celtic fans like to push the rumour he is a former season ticket holder at Ibrox, but in turn some Rangers supporters feels he may overcompensate in these matches to prove he has no bias, ironically causing bias.
Whether you subscribe to such paranoia or not, there’s no doubt there’ll be immense pressure on the referee heading into the Celtic Park fixture, which rarely ends well for us.
These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Bobby Madden tim appeaser is the ref on Sunday, hes the worst we could of got.

Bobby Madden. Ahh. The perfect appointment for them. They can give it all the 'he's a hun' patter safe in the knowledge that he will give them absolutely everything as per, but can still fall back on it if they lose.

He will give his utmost “don’t accuse me of liking rangers performance” which in Itself is unfair because of the media witch-hunt and pressure after the last game he will give us zero leeway & zero big calls
