When Rangers lost, Nick Montgomery was upset with the Hibs VAR ruling because the manager thought the Philippe Clement incident was illegal…………

Nick Montgomery, the manager of Hibs, was less than thrilled with VAR and Philippe Clement, the manager of the Rangers, following their 4-0 defeat at Ibrox on Saturday.

The Englishman arrived at Ibrox hoping to pick up at least a point and ruin Clement’s great day on his debut. He was yet to lose a match in the Easter Road hot seat. However, the Cabbage were left feeling sorry for themselves as the hosts defeated them 4-0 in Govan thanks to goals from Nico Raskin, Cyriel Dessers, a double from Abdallah Sima, and more.

Montgomery wasn’t happy with how the game turned out because he felt betrayed by the VAR decision that dashed any dreams of his team earning a result. The setback drops Hibs to ninth place as they continue to feel the impact of their disastrous start under Lee Johnson.

Adam Le Fondre of Hibs said the atmosphere at Rangers won’t bother him, and kids in England are being “praised” for cursing at him.

“The second goal, I really honestly believe it is a foul on Newell,” he told BBC Scotland. I believe he came through the back of the achilles to kick the ball after seeing it again. I genuinely believed VAR would overturn it, but alas.

However, it was a second incident caused by Philippe Clement that infuriated Montgomery even more. After the manager kept the ball in play, Montgomery launched into a rant against his touchline rival.

“Well, I think everyone can see the ball hasn’t gone out,” he continued. When Derek McInnes was dismissed the other week for intentionally stepping on the line as the ball went out, I was standing on the line. You desire uniformity.

“I doubt that I’d ever enter the field and handle the ball. There is no way you tread onto the pitch if he had any uncertainty. It didn’t go out from where I was, and the fourth official didn’t believe it had. You may assume that day won’t be yours when that occurs because there are now 12 men on the field, which is against the law.

“That incident, not why we lost the game, is what caused us to lose.

happened Simply put, I didn’t understand why it was permitted. They receive the throw in, which is the worst part. At Ibrox, you shouldn’t anticipate any favors, but that is against the rules of the game.
