Kenny Miller backs Celtic over Yang red card

Former Rangers and Celtic striker Kenny Miller has said that the decision to send Yang off was the wrong one. Speaking on Clyde 1 Superscoreboard, the player-turned-pundit blasted the decision to send the South Korean winger off.

Don Roberson initially gave a yellow card before John Beaton on VAR instructed the referee to make an on-field review. The resulting red card had a massive impact upon Celtic’s chances of taking three points from the game.

Miller is the latest pundit to speak out against the decision, which surprisingly has its appeal rejected. The second decision, which saw Tomoki Iwata penalised for a hand ball that he didn’t know about, has been equally met with criticism from pundits.

Celtic will now be without the winger for the two games against Livingston and St Johnstone before the international break.

    I think the Celtic Board should speak with other chairmen of the other premiership clubs with a view to collective action against the SFA. It’s high time that institution was cleared out and overhauled. I still remember the Jim Farry affair back in 1999. Farry was then Chief Executive of the SFA and he was found guilty of deliberately holding up Celtic’s recruitment of Jorge Cadete. He was disgraced and kicked out but the rotten institution he headed up is still there and still anti-Celtic. It’s high time for serious change in the SFA and in the refereeing department.
