Grant Hegley from Hertfordshire takes charge as Scunthorpe United travel to Loftus Road this weekend.

Mr Hegley is a referee with a few years experience behind him, starting out his competitive refereeing career in 1999, Hegley was promoted to the football league and refereed his first league game in 2001.

In 2005, Hegley was charged with less than proficiently applying the laws of the game after failing to send of Sheffield United`s Keith Gillespie against Reading - he was subsequently banned for 14 days.

This weekend he will be assisted by Lee Betts (Norfolk) and Gary Young (Bedfordshire), with the fourth official Mr Oleksandr Saliy (Middlesex).

Hegley has taken charge of Rangers seven times - the games are outlined in detail below.

Refereeing Rangers

He officiated his first Rangers match overseeing the R's 1-1 draw with Oldham, Doudou had opened the scoring in W12, before Stuart Balmer equalised for the Latics.

The following season he took charge of the R's at home once more, this time overseeing a win for Rangers over Barnsley, courtesy of a strike from Richard Pacquette.

In the R's promotion campaign he oversaw a dramatic 3-2 win over Port Vale at Loftus Road once more. After running the show against Vale, Rangers let the game slip in the last minute as they conceded a goal for 2-2, within seconds Jamie Cureton had the ball up the other end to win the game.

Refereeing in West London was becoming a bit of a habit for Mr Hegley as he visited W12 again to see the R's lose out against Neil Warnock`s Sheffield United; Andy Gray the goal-scorer on that occasion.

Forward then to 2007, and Hegley saw the R's draw 2-2 away at Scunthorpe United - Ákos Buzsáky struck two sensational goals to haul the R's out of their defensive despair.

Last season he oversaw a disappointing home draw with Blackpool, Dexter Blackstock equalising a stunning strike from Gary Taylor-Fletcher to hand the R's a point.

Latterly he presided over Rangers' win over Bristol City late on in the season - with Spaniard Jordi López and loanee Adel Taarabt hitting the crucial goals in a 2-1 win.

In 22 games thus far this season Mr Hegley has handed out 18 yellow cards and not a solitary red giving him a card average of 0.81 cards per game - the lowest since starting this feature.
