Philippe Clement in ‘quit my job’ vow ahead of Willie Collum Rangers return 

Philippe Clement has vowed he would ‘quit his job’ if he genuinely felt a referee was biased.

Willie Collum will take charge of Rangers’ Scottish Cup match against Ayr United tomorrow evening.

It will be the seasoned official’s first encounter with the Ibrox club since the penalty controversy surrounding Celtic’s 2-1 victory over Rangers on December 30.
Rangers were left reeling as VAR, which was controlled by Collum that day,

instructed Nick Walsh to wave play on following Alistair Johnson’s handball in Celtic’s area.

The Scottish FA later discovered that Abdallah Sima had been flagged for offside prior to the goal.

Rangers officials did, however, meet with Crawford Allan, the SFA’s head of refereeing.

They subsequently made an official complaint with the SFA and SPFL,

requesting that Collum not officiate any future Rangers games. Of course, the governing organizations overturned this, citing the referee’s decision.

And he’ll return to Ibrox for the first time since the Old Firm derby incident tomorrow,

“No. That is something for the club, and we discussed it.

But that will happen in the future.

The Belgians face Ayr United in the Scottish Cup on Saturday,

with the former Celtic skipper returning to a familiar stadium.

And Clement launched the war of words after his team’s triumph over Aberdeen,

explaining that the League Cup holders were up against a club whose management had little respect for Rangers.

Brown responded with a lighthearted remark that the 49-year-old couldn’t be more incorrect.
