We can’t quite believe the linesman has flagged here. Look at his position, it’s in front of Jota when the ball has been played. Jota would take the ball into the box and chip Craig Gordon before either men knew the flag had gone up. Celtic Park thought it was a goal, and as it goes, it was.

The Portuguese star denied a goal he really deserved on the day for his efforts.

The sort of goal that will go to VAR after December in the SPFL and be allowed.

In the grand scheme of things, it didn’t affect the day, but during the first game at Tynecastle on opening day, a wrongly called offside cost Celtic the game.


  1. Maybe the linesman ‘guessed’ Jota was offside. Well that’s what Andy Walker thought about Celtic’s second goal being over the line.

  2. Who cares?
    Ange doesn’t ever whinge about refs or decisions. We got away with 1 goal which VAR would have disallowed & McGregor could have been penalised for a foul at our 1st goal.
