It was back in 2014 in the opening round of fixtures much like yesterday where Derk Boerrigter won a penalty, going down easily to a tug on the shirt.
After the game there was a massive uproar about Derk’s simulation and the SFA stepped in offering the player a two match ban for ‘causing a match official to make an incorrect decision by committing an act of simulation’.
Celtic chose not to appeal the decision and Derk took his punishment.
Fastforward to yesterday’s game where Jamie Walker went down in the box winning a penalty for his side with absolutely NO CONTACT. Kieran Tierney could not believe it when the referee pointed to the spot and every camera angle vindicated that reaction.
Today, there is hardly any uproar because in the end Celtic managed to win. However, the SFA MUST now look to punish Jamie Walker for ‘causing a match official to make an incorrect decision by committing an act of simulation’ as they put it in their own words. He cheated to win the penalty and scored from it.
