Scottish Referees

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tartan refs are seeking more pay
If not, they propose to strike
It’s a difficult job, thankless too
And inflation has taken a hike

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 The two sides are talking, hope for resolve
This band of men, let’s not knock it
It must be hard to find enough Scots men
Willing to reach into their pockets

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 (or maybe they never book anyone!) ; )



Cliches and stereotypes rule ok!

I enjoy watching Scottish football, it’s fast and physical – a refreshing change from the choreographed and stage managed fare of the Premiership where even goal celebrations are given a dress rehearsal.

SPL refs currently on £575 per game, professional EPL refs are on a salary of £50-60K.
