Once upon a time, Vincent Lunny couldn't go a day without being in the headlines.

The Scottish FA compliance officer has been enjoying time out of the limelight of late, a much needed rest, you would say.

Manuel Pascali, Darren Randolph and Kenny Shiels endeavoured to end that at the weekend.

Particularly the Kilmarnock manager who, suffering from a literal pain in the backside at the moment, is determined to be as big a one to Lunny as possible.

Unhappy at his captain's dismissal in the weekend defeat to St Johnstone, Shiels laid into the fourth official's influence in the red card.

It was an unhappy weekend for Neil Lennon too, who offered to quit Celtic if fans wanted him to go. This after yet more points dropped after European ties, this time in defeat to Inverness CT.
