On The Ref Show this week, Alan Biggs was joined by BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson and former Referee Manager for the PGMOL Keith Hackett to discuss what was considered a successful weekend for referees in the football leagues.
You can read more of Keith’s view in his latest Verdict where he singles out praise for the man in charge of the Steel City derby, Simon Hooper. The Wiltshire official oversaw Sheffield United’s 4-2 win over Sheffield Wednesday and his performance was highly praised. There’s also discussion on another derby north of the border as Celtic beat Rangers 2-0 at Ibrox.
In the Premier League we round up the action in all the games including discussion on Wayne Rooney’s Everton, Chris Kavanagh during Burnley’s 0-0 draw with Huddersfield and much more on this week’s The The Ref Show.
