Despite the comfortable 4-0 win over Motherwell it didn’t pass entirely without incident with Scott Brown – on this occasion – the victim of a late “stamp” from Chris Long, who may face retrospective action from the compliance officer.

With the last few days being filled with controversy surrounding Alfredo Morelos’ interview with Sky Sports and Leigh Griffiths under the spotlight for his own alleged stamp against Hamilton at the weekend, how the SFA reacts to this clash will be interesting given the precedent set earlier in the week.

Long could be in hot water as the video footage appears to show him stepping across onto the Celtic skipper’s ankle after he has played a pass inside.

Should Long have been sent off for catching Brown?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hoops fans took to Twitter with the evidence pointing to the Motherwell player lucky to escape any action on the night hoping that it gets the same media coverage as Griffiths’ did after the weekend’s fixtures.

The disciplinary procedure in Scottish football continues to be a laughing stock and is in serious need of an overhaul – even without VAR implementation – to bring the game into, at least, the 21st century and improve the national game as a whole.
