Why? What's wrong with that, if she's good enough then why not referee that game?

You are familiar with how bad the male referees are up here? My feckin cat could do a better job. I thought I had been beamed back to the 70’s reading that.

I was waiting for, As long as she’s back for 5 to cook her mans dinner It might not be a problem. :)

If she's the best referee around right now then why not. If it's a case of shoving diversity down our throats and a better, male referee has missed an opportunity because he's not a woman then it's counterproductive.

If they're good enough then who cares if they're male, female, transgender, non binary or whatever other genders are coming out of the woodwork. Did you watch the women's World Cup? That's USA team would probably finish 2nd in our league.

After watching the refs in this country last season and years gone by female refs couldn’t possibly fail refereeing games in the spfl.

Until there is women playing within the teams then there shouldn't really be a need for a female ref or official. Pandering to the ever offended generation is what's going on here. Im just not havin it, and i don't care who i offend, women have their own version of the game, stick to it. I watched what i could of the womens world cup, and it was utter gash. Im not in the 1970s, i can think for myself. Think some on here have been watching too much Loose Women on telly. If the game was ever to get to the point were players were from both sexes then it would be fine, but its not.

Thanks to everyone for their comments on my post re female referee, we are talking about a high profile MENS football match here not some kick about on a public park. I didn’t see much of the women’s World Cup what I didn’t see was any male officials why, because it was the female version of the game and they wouldn’t allow male officials. These players are super fit, faster, and stronger, she may well do ok but as I said it’s a mans game. Im not in any way sexist I couldn’t be with a wife and three daughters, thanks Bhampot for your support.

But why can't a women ref the mens version just like men do in the womans. Same with coaches, managers etc. doesn't matter, if they are good enough then gender does not matter. Only sexist bigots would say otherwise.

Well if she is that good get her up to do the Celtic matches please. As some of the refs here are shocking. Best of luck to her in the super cup.

Corey67, i never said they couldn't do it, im sure they're good at their job. I just think they should stick to the female version of the game. I don't think men should be reffing their games either. Women should be taking the lead in their own game, refs, coaches, the whole shootin match. I fail to see what's sexist or bigoted about that. Its a straight no BS opinion. The only thing iv learned from this thread is that there's a lot of our fans under the thumb at home 😂.

bhampot do you think then that woman shouldn't fly planes or fight in the army. we live in a diverse world now and if you look around celtic park am sure you will see thousands of females. do you want us to hunt them to go watch womans football as its only big boys who watch the men. away you dae yir dishes afore she comes home and sets about you.

Not under the thumb just in the 21st century. Why do men have to stick to the mens game and women to the women's game. Makes no sense. Rules are the same. Frankly we can't exactly be picky going by the standard in Scotland so if they are good enough get them in.

Bit of a tangent there robroy. So im assuming most on this thread would be happy for our next manager to be a woman? Honestly where do we draw the line. let's keep the genders seperate in our game its bad enough that our schools are telling kids u can be any gender u want.

No robroy, get off the bandwagon. Women don't fly seperatly from men do they, no, that would be silly. As for the Army, i served with a few good female soldiers, 1 or 2 where exceptional, but, being an army, you could only use the exceptional female soldiers on the front line otherwise you would weaken your forces, that's just a biological fact that no amount of diversity campaigning can do anything about. Women and men are free to choose whichever version of the game they want to spend their hard earned money on too, more spend it on the Mens game because for now its a better product. Women have their very own game, their own leagues, their own associations, officials etc. Its fine to mix it up a bit at a lower level, but not for me at the pinnicle of the game. You also are implying in your post that im sexist and maybe a bit old fashioned, thankfully im not easily offended eh. Bit judgemental of you is it not? . Have you started your campaign to get the womens grand slams in tennis played over 5 sets like the men yet?, after all, they get the same prize pot, it would only be fair right? . Is it right for anyone, no matter the sex, gets the same wage for half the work? Too many people just towing the party line and are fearful of upsetting the snowflakes. Mens Football is played by Men, Womens Football is played by women, its only right that they coach and officiate it themselves. Its upto free thinking people which they go choose to pay and watch.

I would have no issue with a women being manager. However they would of course need to earn it in the mens game first. Style of play speed, power and quality is different level atm. If a women went and managed there way up like the men have too what's the issue? Again quality of officials and football in Scotland isn't the best and if women can come in to the game and improve it why not?

Thats your opinion Corey67, that's fair enough. Il respectfully disagree, But its not for me, and im no sexist or bigot. Some things are better left as is, the minute football becomes completely mixed its the biginning of the end for me. It would not be the same game. Thankfully i think il be long gone by the time it happened.
