Ross County cheat Alex Schalke has accepted his charge of simulation against Celtic at the weekend from the SFA compliance officer.
The club and player were notified of the charge and were given the option of a two-match ban or to make their case on April 27th.
The Ross County manager Jim McIntyre said an ‘upset’ Alex Schalke would not contest any ban and that he was sorry that he did it.
Jim said “Alex knows he was wrong, there was no contact and he’s came and apologised to me personally”
Although Jim was quick to say the player had never been penalised for diving before.
I wonder if the player has contacted anyone at Celtic to express his regret.
While Celtic are already Champions and his blatant simulation didn’t affect Brendan Rodgers side too much, the point County has gained because of it could prove pivotal in their survival during the run in.
Still no comment about Don Robertson and his hand in all this as he prepares to help officiate Celtic’s Sunday semi-final.
