After watching the game today the only conclusion i can draw is that the sheep knew prior to kick of that they would be allowed to assault our players and i am convinced if the score was 1-0 that thug ferguson would only have got a yellow for his assault. OUR club needs to speak out about this before we lose a player for life because of this blatant refereeing bias.

We have been far too quiet and accepting of this for nearly two whole seasons now and I am at a loss as to why no-one from Celtic has spoke up or used the abundance of video evidence to take them to task.
Every other manager/ club in Scotland are ultra-quick to defend their club and there are even those who have bad-mouthed our captain (and others) publicly and aggressively, while we remain silent.
The lack of protection and ongoing blind-eye epidemic has encouraged many opponents to assault and attempt to injure our players.

What exactly do you want the club to say? That they want answers about the referee not intending to send off Ferguson even though he did send him off? He rightly sent off 2 of their players along with their management team and also gave us a penalty - all correct decisions.

kev, did you watch that today? ferguson should have been booked for persistent fouling and was eventually sent off for that assault on
tom rogic. our players need protection for 90 plus minutes not just when the game is lost.

{Ed007's Note - Ferguson was already booked and Thomson still gave a straight red for his challenge on Rogic. I think it was Sutton that said even if he had won the ball he would have went off for a second yellow. I really don't know what people expected the ref to do differently on any of the big decisions.}

Think that rat Ferguson spat at wee James as well . the ref was ok but the Forrest booking was bizarre as it was a foul.

{Ed007's Note - Oh yeah I forgot about that but Forrest made a bit of a meal of it imo. Why do players need to dive like a dying swan instead of just going down naturally?}

ed ferguson hadnt been booked, that is my point he was allowed to consistently foul and it was only after the geme was lost before he was going to get punished.

{Ed007's Note - I was sure he had been booked earlier on because I was thinking he was walking a fine line after it. My bad.}

He was booked before his red card. Only thing ref got wrong was the tug on Forrest but that was because Forrest dying swan act.
Moaning about ref just seems to be the default position for some people.

I thought the ref was good yesterday
Some big calls but for me they were spot on.
Forrest went to ground far to easy although there was a pull on his jersey
What was Mcinnes sent to the stand for?

we still ended with a player assaulted and his season is probably over.

Agree he definitely got the Forrest one wrong. He went down theatrically but it was still a foul. He also should have booked Ferguson for persistent fouling but other than that I don't really know what there is to complain about.

Players shouldn't go down like that, Forrest was grabbed slightly round the middle, but he went down like someone had superglued his boots together, why don't they ignored this "there was contact, so he was right to go down", nonsense, why didn't Forrest keep steaming in on goals and try to score instead of making getting a free kick or a penalty the priority.
