HIBS star Darren McGregor has taken a major swipe at Moussa Dembele after Saturday’s clash at Celtic Park.
The defender has called the Frenchman out on going over too easy and said Bobby Madden was correct to book the star for diving.
“There was maybe one out of about four or five where I put a wee bit extra on him and it probably could have been a foul,” he said. “But every other one, he just seemed to fling himself to the ground.
“Bobby made a couple of great calls. It’s hard for a ref. For a defender, it’s almost like you can’t touch a forward now. You can’t lay a hand on him.
“We are both grown men of around 80 kilos so you are allowed a bit of physical contact. But if it’s a hand on his chest and he chucks himself to the ground then for me – and maybe I’m biased – that’s unacceptable.”
Celtic ran out 1-0 winners against Hibs on a day where they lost two major players to injury.
I’m not sure Moussa will lose much sleep over Darren’s comments.
