Rangers were denied a clear goal at Rugby Park this afternoon, leaving many supporters fuming with the officials again.

Facing off against Kilmarnock in the Scottish League Cup, Steven Gerrard’s side should have found themselves ahead in the match far earlier than they did, after the ball clearly crossed the goal-line.

Fortunately Alfredo Morelos has risen to the occasion and put the Gers ahead 2-0 at half-time, but it’s been another shocking 45 minutes of officiating in Scottish football.

Killie have had their chances and the failure to see that we had scored a perfectly legitimate goal could have been costly.

Having also seen a penalty not given and a lack of protection for players on the receiving end of stiff challenges, many fans are fuming again with the SFA’s match officials.

It’s been a dreadful summer for their reputation and we can only hope this isn’t a trend that continues all season.

These fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the first half incidents…

  • 3 Scottish games played so far. One red card that was never a red card, and probably cost us 2 points. I ball clearly over the line today, missed by the officials. Thankfully it didn’t affect the outcome of the game, but that is two major blunders against us in only 3 games played.

  • I wonder just how Steve Clarke would have handled that situation if that goal was disallowed for Kilmarnock.

    All teams now know that Glasgow Rangers are on the thresh hold of something really Major happening and they do not like it one bit.

  • Perma rage and tribute fans go hand in hand, besides that, they have got it all wrong, we don’t hate them, we love them, they are so funny.
