Celtic managed to take one step closer to the Scottish Premiership title on Sunday with a 2-1 win over Dundee at Dens Park.
Goals from Jozo Simunovic and Stuart Armstrong gave the Hoops a win that sees them needing just one more victory to secure a sixth successive league title.
Faissal El Bakhtaoui managed to give them a scare in the second half but despite having to weather late pressure from the Dees, Brendan Rodgers’ side came through unscathed.
It means Celtic have now gone an incredible 36 domestic games unbeaten so far this season in all competitions and are now only 11 matches away from going the entire campaign without losing.
One of the big talking points coming out of the match was Darren O’Dea’s physical handling of the Celtic attackers. The former Hoops hero gave the likes of Scott Sinclair and Moussa Dembele quite the workout, managing to keep them quiet for the majority of the match.
One challenge though was deemed to have gone way too far by the Celtic support. In one incident O’Dea put his arms around Sinclair’s neck and hauled him to the ground, committing a foul and receiving a yellow card.
Many supporters felt it should have been a red and weren’t too happy with O’Dea either, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Glad to see Darren O'Dea has decided to sack this football lark and just work on his body slam for Wrestlemania ????

Shocking coverage from @BBCSportscene not showing the rugby tackle from O'Dea. A straight red all day long.

I suggested earlier that Darren O'Dea may have watched the Ire-Eng rugby match yesterday. He'd have got 10 minutes in the sin bin for this.. pic.twitter.com/k1sT8cTUyD

@odea_darren our main positive is you didnt injure any of our players today. In fairness your brutal foul on Sinclair was a decent try.

Still cannot get over O'Dea's 'challenge' on Sinclair today.

O'Dea literally grabbed and brought down Sinclair by the throat. Seriously, is that not considered a red?

No, this isn't Rugby.
This is football/soccer when teams play Celtic.
Darren O'Dea 'tackles' Scott Sinclair.
He got a yellow card. pic.twitter.com/mLvtDZNmUT
