There is an assumption from fans of every team that referees are against them. But how does that match up in terms of fouls, yellow cards and red cards? Using information from the SPFL's stats centre we devised a points system to rank the league’s 12 teams. A foul = 1 point, yellow card = 4 points and red card = 10 points. Since some teams have played more than others we have divided each team's points total by the number of games they have played. Click and scroll to find out where each side places in terms of discipline points per game – the lower the better. (Retrospective red cards are not included in the figures, rescinded red cards are).
