Bitter Hearts Star Stevie McLean who was part of his side’s ‘pumping’ at the hands of Celtic yesterday has hit back at anyone who wants to have a go over him grabbing Eboue Kouassi’s private region during the game.
The Jambos thig was already on a yellow when he grabbed the player in Celtic’s penalty box with Eboue perhaps going down a bit more theatrically than he needed to.
However, the player makes no apology for doing it and even says ‘they’ (Celtic) will try to play it up after the incident.
“It was just a laugh. It was a wee wind-up. It’s fitba, eh.
“Jesus, if I went down every time a centre-half did that to me I’d be on my backside all day!
“If you think about how many times a centre-half has a dunt on me, I’d be on my arse all game.
“No doubt they will try to play it up, but it was nothing.”
McLean was on record on Wednesday declaring he wanted to see Celtic get pumped in Europe before their Murrayfield tie to give them the edge.
It seems his mouth puts much more work in that his feet, and erm hands.
Celtic will take on Hearts this Saturday at Parkhead which should be another explosive tie.
