The Scottish Professional Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Celtic this weekend.

Hearts host Celtic on Sunday December 27 for the game at Tynecastle and the match carries a 2pm kick off for screening on Sky Sports.

Referee: Steven McLean

Match Day referee McLean has officiated four Hearts games this season. The four three St Johnstone win on the opening day of the season, the two nil loss to Inverness in September, the four nil Patrick win in October and the two all Motherwell draw in November. In those games he showed 18 yellow cards, and two red cards.

He has however already taken in 20 other matches so far in 2015-16 and in those games, across all competitions and football divisions, he has handed out a total of 73 yellow cards and two red cards. Nine yellows and one red to Hearts.

He was most card happy in the match between Motherwell and Partick Thistle on September 26 with a total of seven yellows being shown.

Let`s hope it`s not another repeat and more of our players edge closer to automatic bans.
