Some Celtic fans might have dug themselves in a bit of a hole while trying to take a jab at their Old Firm rivals Rangers.
As Kilmarnock and Rangers supporters came together to pay tribute to one of Scotland’s greatest marksman Kris Boyd in a testimonial match, some Hoops fans noticed the name ‘Andy Dallas’—a youth player for the Ibrox side—in the Rangers Euro XI squad.

This led them to confuse the 19-year-old with a Scottish referee of the same name and hence, Bhoys on the internet were left absolutely raging upon the apparently biased official for being a fan their rivals.
Ahh. Just like his old man. Staunch to the core. This would not happen in any other country in world, only Scotland lets referees that support a team officiate their games . So as an optimist. I hope you break a leg u cheating hun fuk. Who’s the ref. Willie hun young.

Oops! An easy mistake to make perhaps.
But Rangers fans are unlikely to take it too kindly and we’ve got to say fans of the Scottish Champions sort of shot themselves in the foot on this occasion.
Celtic fans thinking Rangers youth player Andy Dallas is the Scottish referee playing for a Rangers 11 in Kris Boyds testimonial.
