'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Celebrity Supporter Agrees With Criticism Of Ref

Dundee United supporters are fed-up of Scottish referees always giving the big decisions to the Old Firm, according to celebrity fan Lorraine Kelly.

Speaking after Mike McCurry's disgraceful performance at Ibrox, Lorraine Kelly spoke on the BBC's football phone in, to back United's manager Craig Levein.

After losing 3-1 to Rangers, Levein criticised McCurry for 'bottling' out of a giving United a stonewall penalty, a clear goal and for not sending off several Rangers players.

"We get a perfectly good goal chalked off and a blatant penalty, with not even a decision to make, and it should've been a sending off," complained Lorraine on the BBC's 'Your Call' radio show.

"It just happens far too often. I am a Dundee United fan and we were robbed. I think Craig Levein got it right, the ref bottled it."

"This was a huge, huge game for Dundee United. Why should we be treated like second class citizens?"

According to the Television presenter, its time that something was done to improve the standard of refereeing in Scotland and that might mean inviting foreign referees into the SPL.

"I've gone from being scunnered and angry to being weary of it. We have to stop whinging and moaning about it and do something about our referees."

"Nobody is infallible, but it might be easier if we get referees from somewhere else."
