Tom Boyd’s green tinted specs always amuse me every-time I watch Celtic TV. But he is spot on today when he calls out Bobby Madden. Tommy Boyd claimed the Gers fan/Referee needed to hang his head in shame after Edouard got scissor kicked inside the Dons box.
Aberdeen seem to be intent on making these kind of tackles the last few seasons on Celtic players. Scot Brown and Kieran Tierney have also been on the end of some dodgy tackles. If the officials are not protecting Celtic players then they are giving out a message that these tackles are ok.
To add insult to injury, Madden got on the Celtic’s physio case over taking too long to leave the field with Edouard. The French striker got back onto the park for a few more minutes but didn’t make it to half time. Edouard who had rattled the Aberdeen woodwork had to limp off injured and was replaced by Scot Sinclair.

It is not the first time Madden has enraged Celtic fans with his selective decision making. Tommy Boyd declared after the incident, “Bobby Madden clearly hates Celtic”. Hopefully Celtic can win this game in the second half and not have points dropped because of more poor officiating. Don’t be surprised to Madden getting a few more Celtic games to ref.
