Celtic fans on Twitter couldn’t believe that Dedryck Boyata was sent off in the 1-0 cup win over St Johnstone on Wednesday evening.

Luckily for Celtic fans, Leigh Griffiths’ goal in the 83rd minute was enough for the Bhoys to progress to the semi-finals of the competition, but many were fuming with referee John Beaton for his decision in the 90th minute.

The 36-year-old Beaton had a yellow card in his hand that he was about to show to Boyata, but the Belgian centre-back kept protesting and was eventually shown a red for using foul and abusive language.

Boyata has had a turbulent few weeks at Parkhead, as he failed to force a move away from the club in the summer following his third place finish in the World Cup with his national side.

The now 27-year-old joined the club in 2015 from current English champions Manchester City and is not the most popular player among Bhoys fans after his recent antics. However these fans on Twitter were fuming with the decision to send him off. Check out the best tweets below.
