Loic Damour claim that Scott Brown rules the roost over Scottish referees was sure to cause a stir.

But the Hearts midfielder's remarks split the camp over those who believe the Celtic skipper has whistlers wrapped around his finger.

Lewis Doyle, Limerick, said: “Damour complaining about Broony running roughshod over referees is talking some bull.

“My advice to the Frenchman is focus in helping your new manager who I think will do a great job for Hearts.”

Tam McCarthur, Springburn, said: "I had to check who this guy Damour was when he criticised Brown. I've discovered he's a guy who couldn't get a game at Cardiff and now struggles to get a game at Hearts .

"Clearly he has a chip on his shoulder and you'd think he'd be concentrating on his own game rather than a Celtic player who'd just schooled him in how to play the game."

James Walker, Torrance, said: "The only thing Damour was right about was his claim that Brown is the king of the league.

"It was an embarrassing statement to make by a player who's made no impact at Hearts and has been part of a team which is now at the bottom of the Premiership."

Eddie Lawson, Glasgow, said: "It's about time someone spoke out about the influence Brown has over referees as he gets away with murder week in and week out. Damour is correct, Brown does believe he's the king of Scottish football and referees appear to agree as they give him such as easy ride."

Rab Hunter, Dumfries, said: “I agree with Neil Lennon, I was also dumbfounded by referee Bobby Madden’s display during Celtic's win over Hearts. My confusion was around how Celtic managed to finish the game with 11 players on the park.

“Brown could have had three yellows, but the main area of disbelief involved Jonny Hayes. To deliberately elbow an opponent in the face and not even receive a word of warning, never mind the red card such an action demands, beggars belief. 

“If Celtic do not go on to win the league they certainly can’t blame officials.”

Stephen Mulhern, Dumbarton, said: “I’ve been one of Olivier Ntcham’s biggest critics but having witnessed his recent performances lately I’ve changed my mind.

“He seems to have a almost telepathic understanding with Odsonne Edouard up front so much so I wouldn’t rule out Brendan Rodgers’s make our so-called Magic Man Tom Rogic disappear in the coming transfer window.”

David Bryce, Troon, said: “Surely Celtic are not scouting the Slovakian market again especially given how poor Vakoun Bayo is. We would be better served scouting the Scandinavian, Dutch and French leagues.

“I am fed up with our signing policy. More often than not we sign bang average players.”

Hoops fan Steve McSherry, Uddingston, said: “I am delighted with the Europa League draw and believe we will progress. Rangers also got one of the weaker sides in Braga, however I feel Braga will be too strong for them.”
Now a few Rangers related calls.

Bill Lockerbie, Northampton , said: “ Alfredo Morelos did nothing against a weakened Celtic side on the day. He plays in a team that has won nothing and can't be trusted to hang around for 90 minutes.

“We are asked to believe that he is worth £40m which I assume is Euros and at today’s exchange rate, means £20m for anyone who fancies a gamble.”

Gordon Ashley, Mossblown, said: “ Rangers fans are obviously dipping into the Christmas wine early with their Morelos record transfer fantasy. When he’s scoring in the Champions League against PSG and Man City they can ask for Moussa Dembele type money. Celtic are the best team he's faced and he's flopped eleven times. Face facts.”

Lance Little, Erskine, said: “I agree with Rangers fans who think Morelos will go down as a saviour. His £10 million transfer fee will keep the lights on at Ibrox

Kenny Wilson, Moffat, said: “While the saga continues about how good Morelos is or how much he is worth, the fact remains there has still not been any interest or offer from one single club. Maybe January will solve the puzzle.”
