Astonishingly, striker Albian Ajeti has this afternoon been issued with a Scottish FA Notice of Complaint and offered a two-match ban over claims that he DIVED to win the penalty in Celtic’s 4-0 win over Kilmarnock on Tuesday night.
Referee Kevin Clancy somewhat grudgingly awarded a penalty after Ajeti chased down a loose ball with the Kilmarnock keeper Colin Doyle clearly catching the Swiss striker’s foot. Watch the footage below.
The Ajeti penalty yesterday was soft, but there’s contact. I’m not saying I like it, but the way football is now, if defender makes contact in the box, doesn’t win the ball, attacker goes down – that’s how it is.

Clancy it seems is unhappy at his own mistake in awarding Celtic a penalty – he is after all the very same referee who stated that he was well aware of the significance of this season -so he’s now claiming he didn’t see the incident in its entirety. Therefore the matter has been sent to a panel of former referees – we can’t even escape them when they’re too old to give penalties to theRangers – and they have all shaken hands on their collective decision to lodge a charge against the nasty Celtic player claiming a breach of disciplinary rule 201 which governs “acts of simulation”.
So the three former referee reckon having presumably watched the videos that Ajeti dived. Celtic. What an opportunity you now have to bring our club together and take these PEOPLE on head-first. It is LONG overdue.
Remember too that they tried via their pals in the media, including their former club’s former players at the various broadcasters, to get Scott Brown banned for a nothing incident at Rugby Park. Compare and contrast with the yellow card (cough) challenge by that animal last night against St Johnstone.
Celtic. Grow a pair and start to bring the support back onside. Let’s call them out once and for all. This could let Peter Lawwell go out with a BANG.
