Keith Jackson On Craig Thomson

On Monday night's Real Radio football phone-in Daily Record journalist Keith Jackson appeared as a guest alongside regulars Ewen and Roughie. The programme focused on Chris Templeman's disallowed goal at Hamilton. Both Jackson and Ewen were critical of referee Craig Thomson and sympathetic to Morton's anger.

Jackson has followed this up with an opinion piece in today's Record. In the article, titled - The Ref's A Homer .. Homer Simpson (pictured), Jackson gives his take on events.

In yesterday's Greenock Telegraph Roger Graham has written a similar piece and Morton chairman Douglas Rae has updated the official website with 'further comments'. You can read all of these at the links below.

The latest information according to Chris Fitzgerald in today's Greenock Telegraph comes from SFA's head of referee development Donald McVicar. He is quoted as saying: "We’ve seen the tape from Hamilton and agree the correct decision was reached. However, the way it was reached has raised some concern and we’ll be sitting down with the referee and linesman involved to discuss the situation.”
