Celtic fans react to Jozo Simunovic’s two-game ban

Celtic’s Jozo Simunovic has been hit with a two-game competitive ban after his friendly red card was reported to the Swiss FA, per The Daily Record.

Simunovic saw red in his side’s 0-0 draw with St. Gallen and will now miss the opening two games of the Premiership season, despite the incident taking place in a pre-season friendly.

The defender will miss the matches against St. Johnstone and Motherwell next month as Celtic begin their title defence.

The 24-year-old was given his marching orders for a tackle The Daily Record described as a “reckless high boot” in the friendly match. The official, Fedayi San, has since reported the incident to the Swiss FA before it was passed to the Scottish authorities.

Simunovic has played all 180 minutes of the Champions League campaign thus far for Neil Lennon’s men and his impending ban won’t affect his availability for European action, but nonetheless fans are fuming about the ruling.

Here is what the Bhoys had to say on Twitter…
