Video: THAT disgraceful handball decision against Inverness at Hampden

The last time Celtic met Inverness at Hampden Park was in the 2015 Scottish Cup Semi Final. Celtic were robbed of the chance to go for the treble thar year due to a blatant act of cheating when Josh Meekins handballed Leigh Griffiths’ goalbound header.

The entire stadium saw it, but incredibly the referee, linesman and additional assistant stood five yards away behind the goal did not.

Speaking to the Daily Record this week, Meekins admitted he was lucky: “You need to do that (get lucky) in the big games against the big teams. We got that with my hand ball when we beat Celtic in the semi-final. You need these moments to go for you and if they do then you’ll always have a chance.”

The sides have not met at the national stadium since and there is now a score to settle.

Just look at this scandalous clip!
