Robbie Neilson played to the media gallery last night as he claimed that you require a decapitation to have a Celtic player sent off in a home match.
Not for the first time the Hearts boss is miles away from reality but it made for easy headlines and it appears no-one was prepared to challenge the Hearts boss or ask him about the early challenges from Cammy Devlin and James Hill that went unpunished.
During the calendar year 2022 three Celtic players were sent off in home matches which is probably just above average.
Should Celtic demand full publication and explanations for VAR decisions
Yes, what are the SFA hiding and covering up?
No, we have to respect teething issues
Back on January 29 at home to Dundee United Nir Bitton was sent off by Euan Anderson in the 81st minute for a second yellow card. A trip, no ambulance was required. An 89th minute goal from Liel Abada ensured a home win and three vital points.
This season, on October 1 John Beaton red carded Callum McGregor for denying Motherwell what he viewed as a clear goalscoring opportunity. No serious injury was reported, Celtic won the match 2-1.
At home to St Johnstone on December 24 Kevin Clancy was told to take a look at the VAR monitor then produced a red card for David Turnbull in the 89th minute. The suspension ruled him out of the next two matches, away at Easter Road and Ibrox.

A few asking question about penalties and red cards at Celtic Park.

So is this ugly inbred stuntman from the film Delivarence going to get away with this language.
Surely the SFA must charge him with something.
They STAUNCH sevco men right UGLY bastards with their mince pies tattooed into the back of their heads.
Robbie Nielson comes out with this pish to deflect from the fact he’s not a very good coach
I’ve heard it awe noo, hertz complaining about a team being physical AGAINST them….
When I read about Neilson’s denunciation regarding needing a decapitation to happen at Celtic Park for Hearts to be awarded a decision from the officials , I immediately thought of the Warren Zevon ditty … Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner ! The tune stays with you all day long !
