An accountant who is also a professional referee in the Scottish Premier

a game over the weekend.

The match featured Falkirk and Hibernian, refereed by accountant Alan

Having already sent off Falkirk substitute Liam Craig for an altercation with
a Hibs fan during the first half, he then showed Falkirk midfielder Stephen
O’Donnell his second yellow card but failed to follow it up with a red.

cautioning him for the second time.

Not surprsingly, O’Donnell denied he had.
