Celtic returned to winning ways in the league yesterday with a 1-0 victory over Aberdeen.
Scott Sinclair’s goal was enough to separate the two sides and Celtic bounced back from last weekend’s draw with Kilmarnock.
But one of the main talking points of the game was not to do with the goal.
Rather, Celtic fans have been discussing Scott McKenna’s wild tackle on Odsonne Edouard.
Edouard was heading towards goal when McKenna comes flying in with a reckless challenge.
However, referee Bobby Madden did not see it as a foul. He waved play on and Edouard had to come off injured shortly after.
Many Celtic fans thought differently to Madden and the referee came in for a lot of criticism.
Here are what Celtic fans said on Twitter about McKenna’s challenge on Edouard.
Bobby Madden should be ashamed. But he won't be. McKenna scythes down Edouard with both feet high off the ground IN the penalty box. A split second before Logan had also pushed Edouard in the back. Did Madden & his assistants really see nothing wrong? https://t.co/TdaAwoOfsN

The more you watch that tackle on Edouard the worst it gets. If that was out in the street you’d get the jail

Haw @ScottishFA Edouard tackle? What’s happening?

Dedryck Boyata shouts at a ref. Straight Red card.
McKenna assaults Edouard with a challenge straight out of WWE.
No red, no card. Not even a foul.
Operation stop the 10 has begun in earnest.

A hip high "scissors" tackle from McKenna on Edouard. Play on says the ref. Not for Edouard though, who is injured and replaced. Fair to say that Celtic Park today was far from a Madden crowd. pic.twitter.com/plxFUaZf70

The ? Has to be asked about the refereeing in this country, Boyata sent off for a bit of lip…McKenna doesn’t even get a booking for a karate chop and Edouard goes off injured, the inconsistency is off the chart.
