Brendan Rodgers Says Clint Hill Admitted Celtic Should Have Had Late Penalty

Brendan Rodgers Says Clint Hill Admitted Celtic Should Have Had Late Penalty

Brendan Rodgers claims Clint Hill told him he’d got away with it when Celtic were denied a penalty for his late tackle on Leigh Griffiths.

A fairly uneventful game at Celtic Park burst into life in the last 10 minutes when Hill cancelled out Stuart Armstrong’s goal for a late Rangers equaliser.

Then the Hoops could have had a chance to win it at the death when Griffiths went down under the challenge of the Gers defender.

But referee Bobby Madden waved away protests and the game finished 1-1 – a big result for Graeme Murty, his men and the fans.

Rodgers wasn’t too disappointed at full-time, but did say in his post-match interview that Hill told him he did foul Griffiths in the incident: “I thought it was a penalty at the end.

“Whenever Clint Hill tells me he got away with it at the end, then that lets me know that it was a penalty.”

If Celtic had got the penalty, you would have fancied them to fire it home and no doubt win the game.

But it wasn’t to be – and the result sets us up for a fascinating Scottish Cup semi-final between the sides next month.

Celtic fans – should you have had a penalty?
