Ref justice for Fenlon

Pat Fenlon has every right to feel aggrieved at recent refereeing decisions against his Hibs side.

They had a penalty awarded against them at Dundee United two-and-a-half weeks ago which was clearly outside the box and on Sunday Leigh Griffiths had a legitimate goal ruled out by the officials as they struggled to see his free kick was at least a yard over the line.

Goal-line technology for me is a necessity but also referees and their assistants have to be made accountable for making such blatant errors.

Players and managers have to answer questions on mistakes they make but referees get into their cars and go home after a game and don't have to face such questioning.

They've always wanted paid fairly for the job they do, time to start earning it I say!
