“I thought he went down easy” – Celtic’s ‘soft’ penalty under the scope as Hibs pundit talks nonsense

Whenever Celtic get a VAR decision there is always a complete meltdown from the media.

Last night I wrote about how the media tried to make Celtic’s victory over Hibs look like a rescue mission by Oh, when in actual fact it was merely a formality by the time the 100 minute game was over.

And it’s the same whenever we seem to get a contentious VAR decision.

And Tam McManus typified the media with this reaction to the penalty Celtic were awarded against his former club when speaking on the PLZ Football Show.

McManus said, “I thought the penalty for Celtic was soft. I thought he went down easy, Carter-Vickers.”

A view not shared by his fellow pundit, Alan Rough, “The only one I would disagree with is the Celtic penalty.

I thought Hanlon was trying to tug him a wee bit because he turned him [Cameron Carter-Vickers].

So at one stage he was holding him back so I would have given a penalty for that.”

And Rough is 100% correct. It was a foul. Absolutely no question.

McManus seems to have his own green tinted specs on and is blinded by his bias for the Edinburgh side to admit the truth.
