Referee Craig Thomson is Slammed After Celtic’s League Cup Defeat

Referee Craig Thomson is Slammed After Celtic’s League Cup Defeat

Another season without Rangers and another missed treble for Celtic as they went down 3-1 to Ross County in today’s League Cup semi-final.

The Hoops looked like they would stroll to the final in March against Hibs after Gary Mackay-Steven put them 1-0 up within the first 60 seconds of the match thanks to some unselfish play from striker Leigh Griffiths.

However, another calamitous mistake from Efe Ambrose allowed Martin Woods to score from the spot as the Nigerian was sent off with just under 80 minutes of the match to play.

Ronny Deila’s side created chances, however, their Highland opponents came out in the second half all guns blazing and two goals in quick succession left the Hoops for dead with the one-man advantage showing.

However, many Celtic supporters feel hard done by after another semi-final defeat at Hampden and referee Craig Thomson was in the firing line on Twitter after fans believed County’s second goal shouldn’t have counted due to a foul on goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

Gordon was booked for protesting after Paul Quinn put the Staggies in the lead only minutes after the restart and fans were furious with the man in the middle’s performance.
