Collum gets European Championship appointment but still no sign of a Hearts match

Sharing is caring!

Willie Collum is going to France- but not Tynecastle!

On Tuesday the Lanarkshire whistler was announced as one of the referees to take part in next summer’s European Championships.

Despite being highly rated by UEFA it seems that the SFA are reluctant to give Collum a match involving Hearts.

Following their 3-2 defeat by Hamilton in August Robbie Neilson claimed that his side had prepared for playing with 10 men once Collum was announced as the match official.

After the match he explained: “This game, with the officials we were getting, we knew there was a high probability of a man being sent off and it’s happened again. We tried to train with 10 men but we didn’t get our gameplan going as when it happened, with who came off, it made it difficult for us.
