The Guardian’s golf writer claims to be a Hearts fan but seems obsessed with all matters involving the seven-in-a-row Scottish champions.
Murray recently decided to slate Rodgers’ decision to drop Craig Gordon for Scott Bain despite the former Dundee keeper now being on a run of nine matches without losing a goal.
On Wednesday night rather than watch his beloved Hearts, or the televised Aberdeen match against Steven Gerrard’s team, the golf writer took an intricate interest in Celtic’s 2-0 win over Hibs.
It’s astonishing that Jozo Simunovic escaped action. It’s equally astonishing that Brendan Rodgers used “young player (Shaw)” as a means (again) to defend this challenge. You can of course imagine the reaction had Darren McGregor done likewise…

Absolute nonsense – his eyes were on the ball the whole time and arms in a natural position for jumping.

Shaw and Simunovic coming from different angles. Shaw not looking at what’s behind him and Simunovic has to raise his arm to protect himself from taking a dull one. This only looks bad because of the speed of the incident

I remember a youngAndy Webster ripping Didier Agathe knee ligaments out with a tackle but he was only a big raw boy sure….

I’m struggling to see what Jozo did wrong. An exercise in equivalence with the Rangers stuff in all honesty.

Referee Craig Thomson was typically lenient towards the Edinburgh side with his reluctant yellow card for Darnell Johnson upgraded to a red and two match ban from the SFA’s Compliance Officer.
Halfway through Thursday the dark web started to fish out incidents during the Celtic v Hibs match, incidents that went completely unreported at the time with no comment coming from Hibs.
