A spate of controversial decisions around the country in recent weeks has turned the spotlight on referees.

McInnes, for his part, was unhappy with the penalty awarded to Celtic in last Sunday’s 1-0 Betfred Cup final defeat at Hampden Park and with the dismissal of striker Sam Cosgrove in Wednesday’s 1-0 Ladbrokes Premiership win over Rangers at Ibrox.
