CELTIC could have been victims of another poor decision during tonight’s game. Hearts’ only goal was given, despite the scorer, Liam Boyce, being offside.
How the linesman never saw this, we understand giving someone the benefit of the doubt but the image is pretty clear.
This was not the only decision that went against Celtic in the match, many reckless tackles went the way of the Edinburgh club. Celtic did give away a penalty, by today’s standards it was going to be given.
Only in Scotland would two Celtic players make their way into the referee’s book despite being awarded the foul. Jota and Taylor were booked for Jota being fouled. Taylor has reacted to Devlin but Jota has done nothing.
The officiating in Scotland is extremely poor and has been for a long while. It’s time the club stood up for themselves, this can no longer continue.
Celtic managed the victory in the end. A missed penalty by Liam Boyce meant Celtic just got over the line in the end.
We wonder if this offside goal will be debated as much as Celtic’s last game against hearts when Kyogo got all sorts of abuse.
