Glasgow Rangers picked up another three points at the weekend as they beat Motherwell at Fir Park.
The ‘Gers were in good form against the ‘Well, winning 5-1 in the end thanks to braces from James Tavernier and Cedric Itten, whilst Jordan Jones also got himself on the scoresheet. The only slight blemish was George Edmundson’s own goal which prevented the Ibrox outfit from picking up a clean sheet.
There was a certain amount of controversy from the win, though. Both of Tavernier’s goals came from the penalty spot, and there have been questions about whether either of them should have been awarded as spot kicks. Subsequently, the Daily Record has questioned whether the handball rule is actually correct as they analysed the game’s big decisions.

What an amazing coincidence that the handball law is coming “under the microscope” only now, just as Rangers are awarded first league penalty in nearly a year. 🤔 pic.twitter.com/1u2HqBZu9r

Motherwell have conceded 8 penalties in 12 games this season and these 2 are the only decisions that come under the microscope?

Wonder if this dying rag plans on putting ref decisions under “the microscope” every week, or just when decisions involving Rangers are concerned. Sooner it goes bust the better https://t.co/Nw1cdDrRIO

Rangers get a penalty, now they want to change the laws. Pathetic
