Allan McGregor deserves to be banned for his challenge on Lewis Ferguson last week and it seems like a simple request of Rangers to have the hearing put back for 24 hours days. There could be many reasons as to why that’s happened and according to Press Association journalist Andy Newport, the Scottish FA have accepted the Gers’ request and the hearing will now take place on Wednesday. It’s all straightforward and his offer of a two-match ban for the Rangers number one will be resolved by the next time that the Light Blues take to the field – unless you’re a Celtic fan. Some Hoops supporters seem to concocting their conspiracy theories early here, with one even claiming there’s an “operation” to stop eight-in-a-row. If McGregor isn’t banned for two games – would it really be stopping Celtic from winning the title? Yes, he’s a key player at Ibrox, but the self-destructive attitude of some of Rangers’ players has already harnessed some poor results for the Ibrox club and the Alfredo Morelos appeal has already been rejected. Some people need to calm down but one Celtic supporter is correct in saying there will be “anarchy” if McGregor is cleared.

Get him done for assault .
He could have pulled out but decided to try and injure a young player.
It was dirty and could have been avoided ask any goalkeeper
