DEDRYK BOYATA was given a straight red for giving the referee a sustained amount of verbal after a challenge on him went unpunished.
Boyata can be seen shouting over at Beaton who shouts back before the defender gives him more.
Beaton then tells Brown to tell him to shut him up before he is sent off – three seconds later he was gone.
Some Celtic fans believe Beaton showed his true colours during the incident with his facial expressions.
Chris Sutton branded Boyata ‘Idiotic’ and ‘Needless’ as the BT Panel walked through the incident.
This red card has massive implications as Boyata is one of Celtic’s top defenders who will miss the Semi-Final against Hearts at the end of October.
It remains to be seen if Celtic will appeal the decision as seeing red for verbal is highly unusual.
It will all come down to the manager and how he views the situation in the cold light of day tomorrow.
Don’t think I’ve ever seen a straight red for dissent ever. Look at the state of Beaton’s mangled face doing his headmaster come here act. Players swear at refs all the time due to the emotion & heat of the moment & most refs give yellow’s. pic.twitter.com/5zpkidBrbC— matt mcglone (@MattMcGlone9) September 26, 2018
Beaton sends Boyata off for abusive language— Electronic Tims (@ETimsNet) September 26, 2018
Thats one for Celtics lawyers i reckon..
I’ll probably take stick for this, but Beaton tells Brown I’m gonny send him aff…. at that point Brown should have got hold of Boyata and told him to shut the fuck up— 🏴 Stephen Wray🍀 (@CelticRockRoars) September 26, 2018
Suspect Boyata questioned why Beaton let the St Johnstone player foul him there. With added effs and jeffs.— Dominik Diamond (@DominikDiamond) September 26, 2018
Classic Scottish refereeing. #Celtic
