John Rankin: Sent off against St Mirren

Rankin was sent off in the latter stages of the 0-0 draw at St Mirren Park for a two-footed challenge on John McGinn.

"When you look at it again, I don't think it's so bad," said Rankin. "There's no malice in the challenge whatsoever and hopefully we'll overcome the appeal later in the week.

"To be fair to the referee he's right up with play and on top of it," said Rankin.

"I've read it, but none of my two feet are off the ground. I've tried to keep both of them on the ground and my studs aren't showing.

"The referee is right on top of it and he's got to make a split decision, but I think he's a bit quick with the cards."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
