Celtic fans react as Tom Boyd is reviewed by the SFA for referee comments

The Scottish FA are reviewing comments made by former Celtic captain Tom Boyd, to the disgust of the supporters, after Neil Lennon’s men were taken to extra-time against Dunfermline in the League Cup.

The ex-Celt was working for the club’s in-house television channel, Celtic TV, when he criticised referee John Beaton and his failure to award Lennon’s side a penalty.

Boyd was angered by Beaton’s decision not to award a spot-kick to the Hoops, feeling there was a clear handball, and he even implied the referee was working against Celtic.

Unsurprisingly, the news that his comments have required the intervention of the SFA has riled plenty of fans.

Some supporters can’t believe that they’ve got involved in such a matter, considering the comments took place on the club’s own broadcast, while others believe he’s been cited simply for telling the truth, exposing an officiating bias against Lennon’s Celts.

Here’s how they reacted to the SFA’s citation on Twitter…
