Derek McInnes has used his platform as a pundit to say Celtic’s goal shouldn’t have stood because of a hand ball in the build up.
The former Aberdeen boss said Jota hand balled it before the ball got into the box and Forrest smashed it home.
Derek seemed irked by the decision and said VAR would have chopped it off:
McInnes stated on Live Premier Sports TV: “I think it has to be said, if that’s in England with VAR that goal doesn’t stand.
“It is fine margins. We didn’t think it was a handball at the time (the pundits), we were just congratulating the fine finish from James Forrest and Celtic for capitalising on the mistake, but it is clearly a hand ball.”
Celtic finally broke down the ultra defensive St Johnstone at Hampden on Saturday, sending the large support inside the stadium wild.
McInnes, a former Ibrox player, who was once sent off as Aberdeen boss for making a gesture at the Celtic support at Hampden was clearly trying to dampen the day.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t do it and Celtic fans sit delighted this evening after making the League cup final.
Perhaps Derek is extra prickly because he didn’t land the Ibrox gig. Let’s hope he gets a job somewhere soon so he’s off our TV screens.
