Celtic were fined £7500 by the SFA on Thursday evening for being found guilty of the following charge:
Where three or more players and/or members of Team Staff from one team are involved in a confrontation with opposing players and/or members of Team Staff of the opposing team during and/or directly after a match.
This pertains to the aftermath of the Glasgow Derby when Andy Halliday (nobody else) took it upon himself to run 35 yards from where he was standing to accost Scott Brown. As a result of Halliday’s actions players ran over in a bid to separate the pair with Brown not raising his hands and Scott Bain protecting his captain from a mouth-foaming moron.
We even saw Wes Foderingham during the heat of the moment pushing Celtic players while the bhoys do not raise their hands and instead choose to laugh at their irate and defeated opponents.
At no point did any Celtic player do anything that should result in a Celtic fine. No Celtic official or player has been suspended as a result so why are Celtic being fined?
This is SFA 101, scared to punish one club without punishing the other. Look through the footage and see what Celtic players could have done differently as they were provoked.
It’s only £7500 but it’s a matter of principle and the club should appeal the decision.
