Ibrox Update – Celtic fans Gathering Info, Beaton given the whistle

JOHN BEATON has been appointed referee for the Rangers v Celtic Premiership at Ibrox on Sunday. Celtic go across the city looking to increase their lead at the top of the league to 16 points but will be well aware of this referee’s track record in this fixture.

Indeed his performance when the sides met in December 2018 led to all sorts of controversies with Celtic taking their concerns about Beaton’s performance to the Scottish FA. And missing attacks on several Celtic players by the Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos – who has never scored a goal against Celtic – was not the end to Beaton’s controversial moments. Afterwards he went drinking in a Rangers pub in Bellshill and a photograph was plastered all over the internet.

Can you imagine this happening at the Manchester or Liverpool Derbies? No, me neither.

Still, this is nothing new for Celtic and we have overcome this before and will do so again. Another Beautiful Sunday beckons!

Meanwhile Celtic SLO John Paul Taylor has provided some information for the 800 Celtic Supporters attending the fixture on Sunday. “Info for Sunday: Fans are advised to be at the Broomloan Car Park prior to gates opening at 10:30, ticket cordons will be in place on the approaches to turnstiles,” he advised.
