Kris Boyd has claimed that Celtic get ‘more than their fair share of decisions’.
The Kilmarnock strike ace was discussing his favourite subject- the 66 domestic matches unbeaten hoops- and the outrage over two penalties awarded against Motherwell.
Boyd claimed that Scott Sinclair and Callum McGregor had ‘given the referee a decision to make’ and suggested that if given the chance to review a video of the incidents the referees would have changed their mind.
Writing in The Sun Boyd states: “But the point is, both defending players were naïve in doing something inside the penalty box that gave the official a decision to make.
“And especially when it’s against a team like Celtic, who get more than their fair share of decisions.”
That ‘team like Celtic’ will be the top scorers in the Premiership with 31 goals who had to wait until the 88th minute of their 14th match to be awarded their first Premiership penalty of the season.
Top of the penalty table are second from bottom Dundee with five penalty awards from 15 matches, Neil McCann’s side have managed just 15 goals this season.
Hamilton and Sevco have each had four penalties this season with Kilmarnock and Partick Thistle the only clubs not to have been awarded a penalty.
Celtic missed out on five SPL title because another club, Rangers (IL) were allowed to field ineligible players with the Ibrox club failing to register payments made to players through ‘Employment Benefit Trusts’ which were proved by the Supreme Court to be disguised remuneration.
