BT Sport pundit Stephen Craigan has hammered Celtic right-back Mikael Lustig following an incident in the Scottish Cup tie against Partick Thistle.
The Swedish international, who was making his return from injury in the game, when down screaming in pain following a challenge with Thistle’s Callum Booth.
However, the player was able to continue on after treatment, with Craigan feeling that Lustig was too theatrical in his reaction, and going on to claim that the player has done this before.
“Lustig as brave as always” he said, as quoted on his personal Twitter account.
“Every foul on him initially looks career ending, then he recovers thankfully.”

The Swedish international was shaky through the game against Partick Thistle, a match which the Hoops eventually won 3-2 thanks to James Forrest’s hat trick.
His rushed pass to Jozo Simunovic lead to the Bosnian defender being short with a back pass which ended up with Kris Doolan scoring for the Firhill side, which brought them right back into the match after the Hoops had taken a two goal lead.
It was a bit of a surprise to see the 31-year-old back in the side after both injury had poor form had contributed to him being left out the Bhoys side in recent matches.
He may well start the Hoops’ next match, the Europa League last 32 first leg clash with Zenit on Thursday.
