CELTIC have it back at the prospect of anything being done to the club or Tom Boyd for his comments on John Beaton.
The former Celtic captain had a go st the whistler for missing the most blatant hand ball you’re ever likely to see during the club’s cup game against Dunfermline.
The media have swarmed on Boyd and his comments. The same press who said very little when Steven Gerrard insisted referees were against his club. The ‘outrage’ has landed the footage on the desk of compliance officers Claire Whyte. However Celtic have said in a statement they have heard nothing from the SFA and don’t expect to considering the context and circumstances.
Celtic have released a statement as cited by FootballScotland.
“We have had absolutely no contact from the SFA in relation to this matter and, given the context and circumstances in which the comments were made, would be astonished if the matter were to be progressed,”
“If it is, then we will respond robustly.”
Celtic won 2-1 on the day in a hard fought win but Beaton did refuse to give the Bhoys a penalty which could have had a big say in the game. Given the whistler was looking straight at it, no wonder Boyd was incensed.
What are the SFA going to do? Ban Tom from commentating on the next cup game?
