CELTIC ran out 5-1 winners against Motherwell in an absolute rout at Celtic Park on Saturday.
However, the game was not without peculiar moments. With Celtic 2-0 up in cruising a wonderful passing move ended up with Tom Rogic putting the ball in the back of the net.
The support celebrated, the Celtic players celebrated and as we got ready for a Motherwell kick off when about 25 seconds later the referee calls it offside and pulls it back for a free kick.

Now the footage suggests Rogic could have just strayed offside here, not conclusive but you could excuse the decision being made. What was strange is the linesman never put his flag up, fans directly behind the linesman testified to that during the game.
That means referee Kevin Glancy has awarded the goal only to overrule it VERY late in the day. Had that goal mattered it would have been a point of contention or had it happened to Motherwell.
