THUG FOOTBALLER Paul Paton fell on the right side of the ludicrous football law that if the referee deals with the incident at the time, no further action can be taken.
The poor excuse for a footballer elbowed the invincible Scott Brown during Celtic’s record breaking win against St Johnstone. The Player led with his elbow and looked like he meant every bit of it against the Celtic captain.
The player should have seen red straight away for the incident but the referee Bobby Madden was having none of it.
Paton has been booked the last six times he’s played Celtic. His thuggish approach to football is nothing new.
Some say his punishment for the incident came later on in the game when Tom Rogic absolutely destroyed him with a brilliant piece of skill – watch that here!
