Willie Collum is becoming our own personal referee and that is something No club wants.
Celtic have him again on Saturday.
That will make it 6 out of his last 11 Premiership League games have involved Celtic.
That's a high amount considering he has only been the referee in 8 Sevco league games since they wrote a letter of complaint 3 years ago.
Since that letter of complaint at the start of November 2018,
Celtic have had Collum for 31% of his overall Premiership league games and Sevco have had him for only 13% of his overall Premiership league matches.

How will Collum Referee on Saturday, will he miss fouls from Motherwell Players, will he Send a Celtic player off, or will he slow the game down and give Motherwell free kicks every 49 seconds, like Madden did against Aberdeen.

I wouldn’t say Collum is biased against Celtic, he’s just a poor referee.
Willie is dangerous to have as our referee and he’s a leveller because he’s loved being the centre of attention his full career, anything can happen.
That’s why it’s not right that Celtic get him more than double the league games Sevco get him.
Collum was always the Lanarkshire referees Golden Boy because he actually made his debut in a Premiership league game back in 2006.
Any other referee would start their first ever professional match in the lower divisions but not Willie.

They kind of stats Buzz are never mentioned. i've seen some of Sevco stats that make out they are treated worse! Our Board should highlight these kind of instances.8 games in 3 years since they complained is unreal. Someone at our club must grow a pair as it's not going to be the wee mandroid Harry Potter who's no doubt currently learning the ropes by Lawell in the background.

The statistics they put up were laughable.
They mentioned Celtic have only had 13 Red Cards in 6 years in domestic football.
Celtic have had 3 Red Cards against Sevco alone in less than 2 years. ?.

Whether you think he is another one of the biased select or just a p. -poor referee, I always expect controversy with Collum and for him to have so many Celtic matches in a short period makes it appear that there is more to it IMO. However, Celtic will say or do nothing and so the suspicions and doubts we may all have will continue.

Buzz any idea off the actual amount we've had. At a quick glance I count about 15 red cards domestically since October 2015 that we've had.

12 Oct 2021 17:45:48
Buzz bang on. He thinks both sets of fans have turned out to see his amazing refereeing. It's always more about his massive ego than the game by the end. Can't stand him. Also an absolute cabbage of a ref.

Celtic have had at least 20 domestically, Dc in that time.
He'll be able to walk to the game now Gerry because I'm sure he's moved to the same Motherwell estate as Hugh Dallas.
Collum is only 42 years old and unfortunately he'll probably be about for a while yet.
Several years ago Scottish referees had to retire at 47 but it was changed to No age limit.
We will have him for at least another 5 years because he will want to reach 20 professional years service.
By that time he will probably be the referee in Celtic games about 5 times more than Sevco matches.

Was bored at work buzz so had a look at all our domestic games played from the beginning of season 15/ 16 until now. In that time we've had 16 red cards in total 13 in the league and 3 in the league Cup.
