Sir Kenny Dalglish: Rangers handball call proved VAR is a long way off being perfect

The ball strikes Connor Goldson’s hand and the referee awarded a penalty after consulting VAR

Anyone who thinks VAR will ensure referees will get every decision right when it’s introduced to Scottish football later this season obviously didn’t watch Rangers’ game in Belgium last Tuesday night.

Connor Goldson was penalised for a handball by the official from Bosnia & Herzegovina, Irfan Peljto.

It was a shocking decision.

Mr Peljto got that one badly wrong, and it led to a second goal for Union Saint-Gilloise which could prove to be very, very costly for Rangers.

In any European game, there is a massive difference between a one-goal and two-goal deficit.

Hopefully, if there are any decisions that are 50-50 at Ibrox this Tuesday night,the Light Blues will benefit from a wee bit of good fortune.

However, you also have to earn the breaks.

Ally McCoist ‘baffled’ by ‘terrible’ VAR decision for penalty against Rangers

I was taken aback by the performance from Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side.

They didn’t play well, and it could have been a bigger margin of defeat.

They have left themselves a massive mountain to climb, and it’s going to take a monumental performance to overturn the deficit.

My biggest hope for Rangers is that the Belgian side get rattled by the Ibrox crowd.

They will not be used to highly-charged European atmospheres, and the noise that can be generated inside Ibrox might spook them.

It’s important that there is a togetherness between the stands and the players on the pitch from the first whistle.

There is a far greater chance of victory if they are all pulling in the same direction, and can put Union on the back foot.

I’m sure lessons will have been learned from the first leg, but big characters and a strong mentality will be required for Rangers to progress.

It looks as though Alfredo Morelos will be available for selection for this game, and that will be a massive bonus.

Asking him to play from the start after so long out injured will probably be too big an ask, but he could be extremely useful with 20 or 25 minutes to go.

The Colombian has vast experience, and is desperate to play in the Champions League group stage for the first time.

He just might have a huge role to play on Tuesday.

I hope Rangers go through, and can also get past Monaco or PSV Eindhoven in the play-off.

The same goes for Dundee United. They were superb on Thursday night in their 1-0 win over AZ Alkmaar in the Europa Conference League.

They stood firm in the early stages to survive a bit of pressure from the Dutch side.

Jack Ross clearly had his players well-drilled, and they gradually found their feet to take the game to their opponents.

United eventually got their just rewards when Glenn Middleton scored that wonderful strike.

The way he curled the ball with his left foot into the net was just beautiful.

Tannadice erupted, and the full house at Tannadice enjoyed the moment.

It was a good week for Dundee, United’s win coming on the back of Eilish McColgan’s sensational run in the 10,000 metres to claim gold for Scotland at the Commonwealth Games.

To do it in a record time, with that amazing burst in the final 200 metres, was incredible. I was watching the telly, cheering her on.

Her mum, Liz, won two golds for Scotland in 1986 and 1990, but said that watching her daughter win was 100 times better, and I know where she is coming from.

I felt the same way when I watched my son, Paul, playing for Scotland Under-21s.

The game was at Airdrie’s stadium, and Paul scored. I was so proud, I immediately phoned Marina to tell her.

I still get tingles thinking about it, and that moment felt as good as anything I ever achieved in my own career.
