Celtic with Rangers pile on the passion and pressure on Callum Murray

Praise be to the referee

I don’t often praise ref’s but last night Callum Murray refereed one of the toughest games I have ever scene. Not that he got every decision right in my opinion, but that he stood firm and dealt with the rage of both the players and coaching staff of both teams. The extra pressure of the fans and live television must have made things all the worse for him, but he kept his cool even when he was man handled by the players. It did seem that Rangers were the ones spoiling for a fight and the Celtic players did well to keep their cool with challenges flying in all over the park. Walter Smith should also be praised for his conduct and for pulling back McCoist, whilst also trying to calm things down. Of course El Hadji Diouf once again showed what a complete zero he is with his ridculous conduct and poor play. The Scottish FA will no doubt take action rightly so, but when all is said and done it was a thrilling all out blood and guts game even if the chances were few and far between. I really enjoyed it with the spat at the end between Lennon and McCoist a real belly laugh.
