WILLIE COLLUM will be the man with the whistle for Celtic’s Premiership High Noon clash with Livingston in West Lothian on Sunday.
It will be the match official’s first time in charge of the champions in the league this season although he was in the middle for Ange Postecoglou’s side’s 4-1 win over Ross County in the Premier Sports League Cup in Dingwall in August.
Collum will be assisted by Alan Muir who will be in the VAR control room.
The Hoops will be fervently hoping the occasion will pass without any comments afterwards about new technology following the carnage in the capital when referee Nick Walsh made a succession of baffling decisions while Steven McLean equally mystifying with some of new technology judgements.
YOU’RE HAVING A LAUGH…Ange Postecoglou cannot believe ref Nick Walsh’s no penalty decision against Hearts.
Thankfully, the Parkhead men overcame obstacles on and off the pitch to beat Hearts 4-3 in Edinburgh on a day when their lead at the Premiership pinnacle was doubled to four points.
Proving the decisions-makers in Scottish football believe in giving everyone a second chance, they have paired up the controversial Tynecastle double-act again on Saturday – at Ibrox where Aberdeen will be the visitors.
On this occasion, McLean will be the man with the whistle while Walsh will attempt to take care of VAR.
Should be an interesting afternoon in Govan.
