Celtic managed to get three points on the night in spite of the referee Alan Muir’s performance which should now be taken up with the SFA.
Ian Bankier claimed at the last Celtic AGM the club did their business away from the public eye. If there’s not some sort of formal complaint handed to the SFA tomorrow over Muir’s performance then something is badly wrong.
The referee missed Carl Starfelt being elbowed in the face, he then doesn’t stop play for a head knock where Carl is bleeding. He then books the Swedish defender for being irate that the game wasn’t stopped so he could receive treatment. Minutes later, Starfelt would be off for a second yellow, taking the Hoops down to ten men.
Carl Starfelt should never have been in that position and Muir constructed the perfect scenario for Celtic to drop points. Low and behold, we still managed to get the result right at the death. That shouldn’t matter, the referee needs to answer some serious questions.
