Ex-Premier League ref questions Dessers’ assist ruling in Old Firm derby

Cyriel Dessers joined Rangers for £5m this summer after a year in Italy with AS Cremonese and has managed just 2 goals in 9 appearances so far for the 55-time Scottish champions 


Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher believes that Kemar Roofe’s goal for Rangers which was by Nigerian striker Cyriel Dessers against Rangers over the weekend should not have been ruled out, Soccernet.ng reports.


In the 437th meeting between the two old rivals at the Ibrox Stadium on Sunday, Rangers thought they had taken the lead in the 28th minute when Kemar Roofe powered a direct shot past Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart.
