Ally McCoist calls Celtic chairman’s idea ‘stupid’
Celtic chairman John Reid and MP Pete Wishart have called for referees to reveal what teams they supported as children, an idea Rangers assistant McCoist lambasts.
Celtic have continually called into question the integrity of SPL referees, their criticism leading to a strike this weekend.
Wishart and Reid have proposed that the refs reveal their boyhood affiliations, an idea McCoist believes would only make the situation worse.
“It’s stupid,â€ he says, â€œand again it goes to this questioning of integrity.
“Let’s say a ref says: â€˜I support Hibs’ and he gives a decision for them. You can’t tell me that doesn’t just pour fuel on a fire?
“You are giving the nutcases a victory if you go through with that kind of thing.”
