CELTIC were one nil up through stage on form Ryan christie and turning the screw on Motherwell when Benkovic bagged an impressive second from an inswinging corner – only it was called off for…for…well, we’re not sure to be honest.
Take a look.

Kevin Clancy seems to have adjudged Benkovic to foul the Motherwell player to score the goal but if that’s the case it’s a very dubious decision.
Both players going for the ball and Benkovic beats his man hands down to get it into the back of the net.
The whistle blew before the ball hit the back of the net but the decision was met by bemusement from the Celtic players.
When you score fair and square, it’s hard to take a decision like that going against you.
A combination of decisions led to Celtic dropping two points on Wednesday evening and not just from the referee.
The bhoys must regroup quickly with top of the table Kilmarnock coming to Glasgow on Saturday.
