It has been as good as confirmed that Scotland will be getting VAR next season after the SFA began work on hiring a Video Replay Operator to work with the recently-announced use of Hawk-Eye being added to the SPL.
Hawk-Eye, which is famous for taking over all calls in tennis after the sport recently dispensed entirely with line judges, has revolutionised Andy Murray’s stomping ground meaning there simply aren’t any wrong calls.
And with Hawk-Eye now in Scotland, and jobs being pushed to operate the tech, as well as referees being trained in it, it is now 99% certain Scottish football will finally have VAR next season.
Rangers have been at the forefront of pushing for VAR, along, dare we say it, ourselves, over the past year, in the game north of the border, and now finally it’s happening.
We are getting VAR next season.
Thank the Gods for that.
