Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon says that Scottish football has bigger issues than goal-line technology to think about.

Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon believes that there is no need for goal-line technology in Scottish football.

The 44-year-old says that the Scottish Premier League should not follow their English counterparts in introducing the Hawk-Eye system from the start of next season.

"We had a fairly big example of this kind of goal-line decision and it was obviously a goal," he told PA in reference to his side's goalless draw with Hearts last month during which Leigh Griffiths wrongly had his free kick ruled out.

"It was disappointing, especially as it was in a derby game but it looks like the costs will be too much for them to bring it in to Scotland. We just have to go on what the SPL tells us. If they don't have the money, then fair enough.

"Are there bigger issues to be addressed up here? Yeah, of course there are. The money has to be spent wisely and it's fair to say goal-line technology is not the priority."

Hibernian are currently ninth in the SPL table with 40 points from 33 matches.
