Glasgow Rangers fans have slammed referee John Beaton after comments from Steven Gerrard following the Gers’ 1-0 victory over Livingston on Wednesday.
The Gers picked up another three points as they close in on the Premiership title. However, Gerrard was unable to watch the second-half from the touchline after being sent off at half-time by Beaton. The former Liverpool captain was clearly frustrated after Alfredo Morelos was booked for diving despite contact being made. He confronted the official at the interval, and received two yellow cards within the space of a minute.
After the final whistle, Gerrard was clearly still irritated. In his post-match interview, he said the decision to punish Morelos was ‘bang out of order’. Gerrard claimed he would accept one official making a mistake, but was furious that a referee, assistant referee and fourth official had all got it wrong.
The comments were shared by Clyde Superscoreboard on Twitter, and they attracted plenty of attention from the Gers supporters.
Should Beaton be demoted?
They took to the social media platform to share their anger.
Let’s see what the fans had to say after the comments from Gerrard
“Hes 100 % correct it was bang out of order”
“We should have had three penalties tonight. Booking Alfredo was outrageous”
“Well said. An absolute shocker from the officials tonight.”
“Bang out of order spot on gaffer”
“Bang on Beaton could have said yup ok let’s talk in tunnel or dressing room but walked on arrogantly”
“Spot on … he’s called 3 of them out on their incompetence… they should be embarrassed… they’ll probably try and ban him for the Celtic game … but let’s face it SIR Steven Gerrards work is done .. eh? He’s not a sir yet …. aw ok .. Steven Gerrard .”
