The red card could still have a huge impact on this game, but saving the penalty could be massive for Celtic.
Fraser Forster has been outstanding since his return in the Summer, and he produced another memorable moment to deny Alfredo Morelos here:
Jeremie Frimpong sees red!

The Colombian is notorious for struggling against Celtic so this is the latest in his long line of failings during this fixture. It’s interesting that James Tavernier passed the duty on for the striker to take this, it looks like they have tried to give Morelos a confidence boost by scoring against Celtic and it’s backfired.
It’s a shame for Frimpong, it did look like a foul and the decision to show him a red card is really a judgement call. There are other players back but clearly the ref thought it was a clear goal scoring opportunity.
