Video: Should Jayden Stockley Have Been Sent Off For Elbow on Kieran Tierney?

Should Jayden Stockley have been sent off for his elbow on Kieran Tierney during the Scottish Cup Final?

The Aberdeen striker was a surprise choice by Derek McInnes in his starting XI to face Celtic at Hampden.

You’d imagine Stockley was selected so the Dons could have more of a physical presence against Dedryck Boyata and Jozo Simunovic in the Hoops defence.

And he didn’t waste any time putting himself about as a challenge with Tierney led to the full-back needing treatment before heading off with what looked like a tooth injury:

Referee Bobby Madden didn’t blow for a foul or punish Stockley – but the challenge has definitely led to debate among supporters watching:

At the time, the teams were already level at 1-1 after Stuart Armstrong cancelled out Jonny Hayes’ opening goal.

The rest of the half has passed without much incident, but should Stockley have seen red for the incident with Tierney?
