Andy Halliday red card video: Is this the worst refereeing decision of all time?

Andy Halliday's celebration against Morton was deemed enough for a second yellow card and a sending-off. Has there ever been a worse refereeing decision than this?

Andy Halliday's celebration earned him a red card against Morton on Monday night, where Rangers picked up a 2-0 win.

Incredibly, a fairly standard fist pump seemed to be enough to convince the linesman that Halliday deserved a second yellow card, and the Rangers midfielder was duly sent off by the referee, earning a suspension in the process.

You can watch the footage below:

As we said - incredible. This also means that Halliday will be suspended for a crucial game against Falkirk on Saturday, with no possibility of appeal since it was a second yellow. The Rangers midfielder picked up a red card earlier in the season against Hibs, which was later rescinded after an appeal.
