Rangers: Fans fume at John Beaton after defeat to Kilmarnock

Rangers: Fans fume at John Beaton after defeat to Kilmarnock - Rangers

A number of Rangers fans were raging over the performance of referee John Beaton in their team’s defeat away to Kilmarnock last night.

The 38-year-old came under fire for a series of perceived injustices against Steven Gerrard’s side as they crashed to a 2-1 defeat at Rugby Park and dropped 10 points behind leaders Celtic in the title race. Alfredo Morelos, who was booked by the official for simulation early in the second half, had a late goal disallowed for an apparent push on a Kilmarnock player when the score was 1-1.

Ryan Kent was shown a yellow card just before half-time after he got involved in “handbags” with Alan Power following a late challenge from the 32-year-old, with the ‘Gers winger also seeing a penalty claim waved away when he went down under pressure from Chris Burke. There were also shouts for handball in the build-up to the home side’s equaliser when the ball struck Rory McKenzie’s arm before it dropped for Niko Hamalainen to set up scorer Stephen O’Donnell.

The refereeing performance of Beaton was loudly condemned by these Rangers fans on Twitter:
