Celtic fans on Twitter are far from pleased with Bobby Madden’s Old Firm appointment

Celtic fans will be desperate to avenge their last result against Rangers when they meet their bitter rivals this weekend, and having a good referee is something that they’re desperate for. The Daily Record has confirmed the news that the official taking charge will be Bobby Madden, and a lot of the Hoops aren’t best pleased.

Be it Rangers or Celtic fans, neither are ever happy with whoever gets appointed and Celtic fans are only proving their side of that now. The Bhoys weren’t happy with the officiating when they lost 1-0 at Ibrox, and they’ll be desperate for Madden to be an improvement on that game, although a lot of them aren’t convinced, even if the referee has a fairly neutral record of big decisions concerning Rangers this season.

The same jokes have all rolled in from the Celtic faithful claiming that Madden’s only in the middle because he couldn’t get a ticket in the away end. However, Madden has officiated three Gers games this season and has given three penalties and three red cards in those games. Two of those red have been to Rangers players and so have two of the penalties, so his record isn’t quite what you’d think from the Bhoys’ comments.

And you can read those comments here:

The Bhoys weren’t happy to see Madden appointed to this one and will just hope they can win the game before he has the chance to lose them it.
