Video: Brendan Rodgers Insists Scotland’s Under-Fire Referees Need to Become Full-Time

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has insisted Scotland’s under-fire referees need to become full-time officials before they can be judged as harshly as they currently are.

The standard of officiating in the Premiership has been a hot talking point in recent weeks, following John Beaton’s controversial performance in the Hoops’ 1-0 defeat at bitter rivals Rangers on December 29.

Beaton has since had to call the police after receiving threats from fans in the aftermath of the powder-keg showdown, and Rodgers reckons it’s about time Scotland’s refs follow the example of their English counterparts and make it a full-time gig:

Of course, the slight difference between Scottish and English football is the mountains of cash the Premier League has at its disposal but surely the SFA could do a bit more to secure the funding to make full-time refereeing in our top-flight a possibility, no?

What do you think of the discussion?
