Video: McInnes Calls Ball Red Card ‘Extremely Harsh’ & Reveals He Was Dismissed for Reacting to Celtic Fans

Derek McInnes has branded Dominic Ball’s red card in today’s Scottish Cup semi-final as ‘extremely harsh’, whilst also revealing he was dismissed for reacting to sectarian singing from the Celtic support.

The Aberdeen boss watched on in horror as his Dons side were dismantled 3-0 at the national stadium in a match which couldn’t have gone more wrong from him and his players.

Not only was Ball sent off for two first-half yellow cards, but midfielder Lewis Ferguson was given his marching orders in the second-half for a dangerous lung on Tom Rogic.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty were sent to the stands for separate incidents, leaving Aberdeen without a senior coach on the touchline for the closing stages of the match.

A frustrated McInnes shared his thoughts on the goings on as he faced the media after the full-time whistle:

Victors Celtic will now go on to play Hearts in the final on May 25, when they have the opportunity to pull off an unprecedented third consecutive domestic treble.

But what do you think of McInnes and his comments?
