CHRIS SUTTON has slammed ‘wasteful’ Celtic after they lost a very late goal to drop two points at Fir Park but also admitted the standard of refereeing in this country is ‘awful’.
.@btsportfootball Motherwell 1-1 Celtic ⚽️ Celtic wasteful and Johnson makes them pay late on… Standard of refereeing at an all time low… Well done to Kilmarnock ?? Well done to Aberdeen??
I’m with Craig Levein the standard of refereeing in this country is awful… this isn’t personal but Kevin Clancy was rotten tonight… having said all that Celtic still only had themselves to blame…
Celtic should have been 2-0 up and cruising but referee Kevin Clancy disallowed Filip Benkovic’s acrobatic stretch to put the ball in the back of the net in the first half.
The Croatian appeared to lose his marker and with the defender all over the place and holding onto Filip’s arm the Celtic star managed to stretch out his leg and score a quite impressive goal. However, it was called off immediately with many of the Celtic players unsure.
Replays show Clancy has made a big mistake.
However, Celtic had more than this chance to bury the game and won a penalty in the first half but the bhoys missed their second penalty in as many games and from then they fell out of the game.
Motherwell’s equaliser was a fine finish but Celtic will know they have shot themselves in the foot.
