Mills 'all in favour' after landmark Celtic and Rangers development today
Celtic and Rangers will benefit from the introduction of VAR as long as it is used properly, according to Danny Mills.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Leeds United and England defender insisted Scotland should copy the way VAR was used at the European Championship and not how it is used in the Premier League.
The SFA revealed last week (October 1) they were set to host a meeting with the SPFL with a view to introducing VAR in the top division.
Former Premier League referee Howard Webb was also said to be in attendance for the meeting that was scheduled for today (October 8).
“As long as they use it like it was used at the Euros and not like it was used in the Premier League,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“The Premier League is not a great example, that’s the problem. The Premier League is one of the greatest products in the world but the implementation of VAR is one of the worst.

“If Scotland are going to copy examples, go to other countries and see how they use it. Look at how it was used at the Euros.
“Ok, it may be getting a little bit better this season in the Premier League, but it’s still over refereeing decisions. Too many decisions are looked at, it still takes too long. We’re getting no idea of why decisions are being made, why some incidents are being re-refereed and some not.
“VAR was brought in for the howlers and we’re not seeing it for that. We’re still seeing it for these tiny little decisions week in, week out.
“I’m all in favour of it as long as it’s used in the correct manner and the Premier League hasn’t got it right.
“The Euros were good because they weren’t re-refereeing decisions all the time. The VAR would look at it and go ‘Not sure’ and that’s how it should be.”
