Chris Sutton led the criticism of Kevin Clancy following Celtic’s 1-1 draw with Motherwell.

For no apparent reason, and with a smile on his face Clancy disallowed what looked like a clear goal from Filip Benkovic.

Motherwell defender Tom Alfred had his hands all over the on loan Leicester defender with his back to the incoming cross.

The last time that Celtic dropped points was at Livingston a month ago with Clancy also heavily involved.

After watching Dolly Menga attempt to head-butt Ryan Christie the referee called both players together and took no further action.

Retrospectively the SFA handed the Livingston forward a two match suspension.

Over the last two months Clancy has refereed three Celtic matches with the other game a 6-0 win away to St Johnstone.

Tonight’s match ended in a 1-1 draw leaving Celtic a point behind league leaders Kilmarnock who visit the hoops on Saturday, elsewhere in the SPFL Aberdeen won 1-0 at Ibrox, their second successive win over the tribute act.
