It’s always hard to remain impartial, especially for either side of the Old Firm, but for whatever reason, Celtic fans and officials alike find it impossible to accept that they haven’t been cheated.

Odsonne Edouard was booked for simulation in the first half after Borna Barisic had made a desperate attempt to tackle him just outside the six-yard box, that the striker chose to throw himself up in the air rather than stay on his feet for what looked like a certain goal, only he will know.

In what year did Allan McGregor make his Rangers debut?

That John Kennedy and Scott Brown referred to the incident as being a “stonewall” penalty, as did Martin O’Neill, Paul Lambert and Gordon Strachan, says it all really despite clear video evidence that Edouard had attempted to con Willie Collum.

If that is what they have to cling onto – that the ref’s are against them – then all it does is distract them from their own failings, something we have taken advantage all season long.

Needless to say, Gers fans enjoyed the moon howling nonsense, taking to social media to rub it in just a little further and make it clear exactly what really happened.

Ref’s get absolutely battered in this country so for Collum to get a difficult decision spot on only to have it questioned, even though the footage backs up his call, says it all about the slant of the media coverage in this country.
