Sinclair blasted by football fans for ‘dive’ in Celtic’s cup final win

Celtic won their first piece of silverware of the season by defeating Motherwell 2-0 in the Scottish League Cup final on Sunday.

Nothing could separate the two sides in the first 45 minutes, but the Bhoys eventually found their stride.

James Forrest opened the scoring shortly after the half-time break, but a contentious moment occurred on the hour mark when referee Craig Thomson pointed to the penalty spot.

The match official felt that Scott Sinclair had been pulled back by Cedric Kipre, who was sent off as a result of the incident.

There have been suggestions, though, that there was minimal contact, which has angered plenty of fans watching the action.

A controversial penalty call can change the course of a match, and with it being a cup final, the decisions are that much more costly.

Plenty of Celtic fans have been celebrating the club’s trophy win, but other football supporters are enraged by Sinclair’s antics.
