Tam McManus has hit back at Steven Gerrard after he claimed that Rangers were held to different standards in terms of discipline this season.

Both Alfredo Morelos and Kemar Roofe have been handed bans by the SFA in recent weeks and will be missing against Kilmarnock tomorrow afternoon.

Gerrard claimed that there have been worst situations than the Roofe incident, something McManus claimed should have been handled on the spot.


Writing on his personal Twitter account on Friday afternoon, McManus slammed Gerrard for ignoring some “huge decisions.”

“Haven’t his club benefited big time from three poor refereeing calls when Rangers should clearly have been down to 10 men very early,” he wrote.

“Huge decisions which affect the outcome of games. All 3 which they went on to win narrowly by a goal. Certain degree of irony here don’t you think?”

McManus may disagree, but Gerrard certainly has a point.

Yes, the boss singles out Rangers and the incidents against them, but he also brought into play Albian Ajeti and his so-called dive that was checked on by compliance officers.

There are more cameras on the Old Firm clubs, that is a given, with nearly every single one of our games being shown live by Sky Sports, home and away.

So, that instantly leads to the fact that everything will be caught in a Rangers game, compared to if something was to happen in a Hamilton clash.

The likes of Roofe and Morelos may have got away with one at the time, but they are still being banned afterwards, which is still half of a problem for Gerrard to deal with.
