    Madden beaton and Welsh the unholy trinity of hunness and when there's a bad tackle on a Celtic player and * all cards are produced one of these * are the ref .
    The club need to grow a set of balls and speak out about the number of bad tackles and even assault with Vickers today and the player involved is still on the park .

    Was thinking this today . Ajer would have been ideal . Could carry it in to the final third and give us an extra man over in attacking areas. Massive to have a CB with that type of ability and a big miss !

    The club needs to lodge an official complaint regarding the officiating, and do it after every single win, not defeats. That way it doesn’t just look like a case of sour grapes.
    To be honest I’m astounded at the referees in Scotland. We’re playing against 12 men every match.

    No question about it. The fact that the St Johnstone lad didn't get sent off for kicking out at CCV is crazy. Then actually giving CCV a yellow card for I don't know I guess the crime of assaulting their players boot with his body was risible.

    Your right on every point there. Always felt this was going to be one we would really have to earn as you knew not just would they sit in and be difficult to break down but they have some decent players to do that and a keeper in Zander Clarke who I think is a very decent keeper.
    But though we played well and really were patient and the result you felt was never in doubt. Brilliant to see Giakoumakis get his first Celtic goal on his first start and a really good finish it was too. Should hopefully really set him up to be a big contributor for us going forward. Great to see Johnson get a good half hour and he was excellent really a constant threat after he came on and of course unlucky not to score with the shot off the post. Credit where it is due Starfelt was very good maybe his best game since signing for us. He has taken and rightly so a lot of criticism but was very good today and Hart I think literally did not have to make a save in the entire 90 minutes.
    Your also exactly right about the latest "honest mistake" when the St Johnstone player kicked out at CCV and somehow was not sent off. Totally agree that we as a club need to start highlighting these "honest mistakes" which maybe it is just me but they seem to be happening even more frequently this season so far.

    That * kicking CCV and swinging a punch not being red carded is one of the most bizarre refereeing decisions I’ve seen in many years.

    You can tell by CCV’s reaction that Kane deliberately boots him in the chest,the whole stadium knew it was a straight red.This cheating from the refs needs brought up at the next AGM,not that our spineless board will do Jack * about it.

    Seems to me he is following instructions or simply wants a calm game by punishing both teams and thus avoiding having to control a game that may ignite . By booking both players he is making a statement - he is potentially ready to give a red card either way.
    This a stupid and totally unfair way to deal with CCV who was the one offended against. Kane should have walked !

    I wonder if he would have followed the instructions if it had been a hun player getting booted and slapped about?

    Just out of a matter of interest after the cheating that went on in our game by the ref, does anyone know if wee fat * got booked for running into the crowd to celebrate?

    Totally see your point. I was reading a lot about this in this forum in pre-season, regarding how badly Celtic are treated by the referees in terms of free kicks not given for bad fouls or the cards that should be given as well. Having watched the games so far this season it is quite obvious that it is happening. We get pulled up for fouls that other teams commit on us that go unseen. There is something terribly wrong going on here in the SPL with the refs at our games.

    I can honestly say that there is not one hard man in this squad that I can see. Celtic are a footballing side, not a side that resorts to thuggery yet we are not protected from thuggish players in other teams. We seem to be targeted.

    I was so angry that even in a pre-season practise match our players got roughed up badly. Dembele and Johnstone both got serious injuries in the match with Bristol City, and that was in England. The players that did it stayed on the pitch. Only now can Mikey play but Dembele is still suffering.

    Yes he would have but that is because there is a separate set of instructions that only apply to zombies! No question it would have been a red card in that case.

    He did get booked at some point in the game. Dk if it was then. Ridiculous if not.
