Rangers hero Ally McCoist blasts VAR in passionate U-turn and admits 'it's driving me crazy'

Ally McCoist has blasted VAR and admits he wouldn't mind NEVER seeing it again in Scottish football.

The Rangers hero comments come after a weekend of controversy in the Scottish Premiership where his beloved Ibrox side had more than a few decisions in their 4-2 win over Motherwell come under the microscope. A red card was awarded against Stuart Kettlewell's side while Todd Cantwell's first goal in light blue had some at Fir Park calling for offside.

Meanwhile at champions Celtic three penalties were awarded, with one rescinded, and a red card shown against Hibs. What followed was severe scrutiny from pundits and fans alike for referee Steven McLean with his calls being a point of contention as Ange Postecoglou's men won 3-1.

And uber-popular pundit McCoist has done an incredible U-turn on the technology with the Ibrox hero now claiming he wants VAR banished from the Scottish game. He even roared 'it's driving me crazy''.

He said: "I think it's been a bumpy ride everywhere. I'll be brutally honest, I thought it would be a great thing. I thought anything that rights a wrong must be a good thing, but I've changed my mind.

"It's driving me crazy. It wouldn't disappoint me if we didn't see it again. I'm all for goal-line technology if the ball's over the line, I'm for that, but I would not be breaking my heart if we didn't see VAR again."
