The typical protests from Rangers fans that they were treated unfairly in a derby loss to Celtic are unavoidable.

After Jack Butland parried a shot in the ninetieth minute, Adam Idah hammered the ball in to give the Bhoys a 1-0

victory in the Scottish Cup Final on Saturday.

Up until then, neither team had really demonstrated enough skill in the closing third of the game to put the

opposition under any meaningful strain. However, Celtic once again demonstrated their winning mindset in the

derby this season, defeating Rangers 4–0 to win both the league and the cup.

There has been much discussion and wringing of teeth regarding a Rangers goal that was disallowed after Nicolas

Raskin shoved Joe Hart while Abdallah Sima bundled the ball over the line from a corner, despite the team’s obvious

triumph. After a VAR review, the goal was first awarded but was later rightfully ruled off.

Philippe Clement, the boss of Ibrox, voiced his displeasure about it. However, previous referees are now speaking out

about the matter and dispelling the city’s complaints.

Bobby Madden analyses Rangers ‘goal’ vs Celtic

Former SFA referee Bobby Madden reckons that Nick Walsh got the call right upon VAR review, writing

on Instagram: “This goal is correctly disallowed following an on-field review. With so much going on at corners these

offences are almost impossible to detect live by match officials, and this is exactly why VAR was introduced.

“There is a lot of discussion around a stronger push not being awarded earlier in the game for an incident just

outside the penalty area. It’s not been detected on the field of play, had it been inside the penalty area VAR would

certainly have got involved. That incident doesn’t mean you then can’t punish

this quite obvious push, two wrongs don’t make a right.

“It is just not possible to jump to play the ball and shove the goalie from behind. You can argue all day about whether

you believe the goalie would have made the play—he was only a few centimeters off. The impact of the push on the

goalie is undeniable, and the VAR cannot overlook this given their extremely clear image.

Rangers supporters reportedly began emailing Madden in retaliation, arguing that Raskin was being “held” and that

the VAR review ought to have called for a penalty.

The former referee, however, addressed that assertion as well, revealing that six highly skilled European officials

concurred that the goal ought to have been disallowed.

In response to his initial article, Madden wrote: “Many questions concerning Raskin’s detention prior to the Hart

push.” Come on. That kind of “holding” occurs at practically every set piece. If you looked into that incident more

closely, I’m sure there were several offenses. Only infractions that visibly affect

an opponent who is vying for the ball are eligible for punishment.
