Video: Did VAR incorrectly disallow two first half Celtic goals?

Celtic have started the second half against Ross County one goal to the good after David Turnbull’s strike. The Scottish Champions are one man up, too, after Brown was sent off for a challenge on Yang.

However, Celtic could’ve arguably had three goals in the first half. Liam Scales thought he’d scored the first goal of the game, after the ball fell to him in the box. David Munro had already blown the whistle for a foul from Oh but this was minimal.

Celtic then thought that they had scored the opening goal after Paolo Bernardo played Daizen Maeda down the right hand side. The winger played the ball in and Oh netted. Although, after a VAR check, it was ruled out.

It looked as if the decision was correct on first view but a second look showed that the ball had already been played when the lines were drawn by the officials.

Matt Corr’s new book Majic, Stan and the King of Japan is out now and Neil Lennon, the Celtic captain that season, has written the foreword for us.
