IT’s the now notorious celebration of Hearts’ cup final demolition of Hibs – so surely Hibs supporter Pat Nevin couldn’t have been seen on TV making the 5-1 gesture?

Nothing pleasant, just peasant for Tom

FROM the inspired genius of Heston Blumenthal to the foul-mouthed brutality of Gordon Ramsay, chefs across the country have been taking their talents out of the kitchen and on to the television screen.

Reffing and blinding

It’s hard being the referee – on Saturday the ref at the Broughty Athletic v Bonnyrigg Rose East of Scotland Cup tie locked himself in his changing room and called police after allegedly being threatened by a player he had sent off, while a female fan allegedly attacked an opposition striker.

a new tractor.
