There are times in Scottish football where imported players must be left wondering what they have let themselves in for.
Like after 80 minutes at Motherwell tonight for Carl Starfelt.
Moving across the park, taking the ball out of the centre circle the Celtic defender was felled by a wild swipe from Josh Morris.
Just as Starfelt released the ball Morris came flying in, both feet off the ground, going across Starfelt to hammer his lower left leg, sending his opponent crashing to the deck.

Quickly Willie Collum reached for his yellow card, the game paused a few seconds as VAR David Dickinson reviewed the incident. On Saturday on the pitch as the match referee he had allowed Craig Sibbald to escape without any punishment for a brutal attack on Giorgos Giakoumakis.
The match continued, Motherwell remained with 11 players on the park with the only consolation for Celtic being that Starfelt escaped serious injury.
