It would seem Celtic are fuming at the Scottish FA’s decision to not take any action against Rangers forward Morelos for the incidents which took place during the match.
The Hoops have gone to the media to air their grievances by releasing an outraged public statement. It read: “Celtic Football Club is surprised that there will be no disciplinary action taken by the Scottish FA regarding the incidents during the match on December 29, which have been widely addressed in the media. It is reported that no action was taken because the match referee saw all of the incidents in question.”
“Given that the referee took no action at the time, this tends to suggest that such conduct, which in one instance led to a Celtic player, Anthony Ralston, being injured, is acceptable in Scottish football. That cannot be right. On the day, Celtic did not play well enough to win the match, something we accept. However, this issue goes beyond the result of the match. In the meantime, we have requested a meeting with Scottish FA Chief Executive, Ian Maxwell, and the Association’s Head of Refereeing.”
Morelos was involved in a number of incidents including kicking and grabbing Celtic players during the Old Firm derby.
