Every Celtic win nowadays seems to get forensic analysis from pundits and ex-pros as they try to discredit why Celtic shouldn’t have won, or got a goal, or had a man sent off etc.
Since the Hoops went top, we’ve seen this go into overdrive with so many incidents being picked over.
It’s frustrating – because when decisions go against Celtic – we’re told a lot of the time these things even out over a season and it’s no big deal.
The uproar about Celtic’s goals and if they should have stood were already being dissected by Sky Sports – then online and after that on Sportscene.
However, there was one flash point nobody seems to want to talk about.
We wouldn’t even bother bringing up – but if people want to talk about game changing events and create a narrative referees are helping Celtic. Just look at the clip below.
Tom Rogic was blatantly brought down in front of the referee on Sunday – by a player who was already on a yellow. Omeonga doesn’t get the ball, trips the Celtic star and has clearly committed a foul and in most peoples books – a bookable offence.
The referee doesn’t even stop play. At that moment – early in the second half – Livi should’ve been down to ten men. This incident wasn’t discussed at all.
