Connor Goldson lives a charmed life, he can use his hands on the ball without any sanction no matter how blatant the offence is and it now seems can also wrestle players to the ground with impunity.

The below video shows Goldson clearly restraining the attacking player who was tearing him apart from going through on goal, itself a red card offence.

The fact that the game was 0-0 at the time and it would have lead to an opportunity for a penalty goal from the Aberdeen team is particularly poignant, why is it that whenever Sevco need a hand they can always rely on it from our officials.

They are still to concede a penalty all season.

Not only are they the only team to have never concede a penalty but they are also the team with the most penalties given to them.

Go figure.

The one thing about this is that it keeps inflating Beale’s statistics, had they gone a goal down they would have been lucky to get it back such is their issue with any form of pressure.

The good news is this will keep Mick in a job and allow him to waste their money over the summer and come up against an improved Celtic.

Should clear errors like this had been called out and stopped during the course of Beale’s tenure he would be another 10 points behind.

Come the offseason, VAR itself needs an overhaul as do our refereeing ranks, honest mistakes like this cannot be allowed to continue.
