David Dickinson is lined up for a rapid Celtic return following his controversial performance against Dundee United on Saturday.

Ange Postecoglou made his first post-match criticism of match officials following Celtic’s 4-2 win, on Wednesday Dickinson will be on VAR duty as Celtic take on Motherwell at Fir Park.

Celtic fans were infuriated when Dickinson awarded Dundee United a 12th minute penalty on Saturday for an incident missed by the match referee.

Nick Walsh, who refused the hoops a penalty against Hearts two weeks earlier, was on VAR duty and suggested that Dickinson reviewed an incident involving Alexandro Bernabei with the match official pointing to the penalty spot. Steven Fletcher equalised with Celtic back on level terms and knocked out their stride by a four minute delay.

Later in the first half Dickinson took no action against Craig Sibbald for a brutal, high attack on Giorgos Giakoumakis. Walsh paused the game to review for a possible red card, after a two minute halt play resumed with no action taken in this instance.

  • the maister says:

    Sibbald,s boot was up as high as Giakoumakis’s shoulders. They reviewed it and Celtic weren’t even awarded a foul! It beggars belief, really does!

  • Joe says:

    The SFA did say they expected “teething” problems with VAR. what they DIDN’T say was they are not interested in feedback or constructive criticism which highlights how it is they themselves who are causing these problems.
    The arrogance of the SFA is only showing them up more now that others are watching.
    They are sadly corrupt to the core yet wonder why the game in Scotland is so far behind that of other countries!

    Cheats , Cheats and Cheats…..oh and…cheats.

  • Rab says:

    VAR is working fine, just the way they wanted it

  • Robert Downey says:

    Once again the silence from Celtic is deafening.
    Are we going to wait until one of these decisions cost us 3 points ,or worse the league title.
    Celtic have to take these people to task before
    these “teething problems ” become the norm.

  • Hugh Gallagher says:

    The situation is even more biased and VARSICAL, beyond belief!
