Celtic fans have taken to social media to respond to the news that Motherwell will not appeal Cedric Kipre’s Betfred Cup Final red card.

Celtic won the game 2-0, but the match was mired in controversy after Celtic were awarded a penalty and Kipre was sent-off after a foul on Scott Sinclair.

Motherwell’s players and coaching staff were furious after the game, accusing Sinclair of diving.

However, Motherwell boss Stephen Robinson revealed today that the steelmen won’t be appealing the sending-off, as it is ‘a waste of time and money‘.

The news has delighted Celtic supporters, many of whom have taken this as Robinson admitting that Kipre deserved to be sent-off.

Here is a selection of their Tweets:

Sinclair and Kipre have the opportunity to renew acquaintances this week, as Celtic and Motherwell are set to clash twice this week.

The teams meet at Fir Park tomorrow night, where Sinclair will no doubt get a hot reception, with plenty of boos.

The final game in the trilogy is at Celtic Park on Saturday, where Sinclair will get a far nicer reception.

Celtic are currently three points ahead of Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership table, with the Hoops having a game in hand on the Pittodrie club.
