Celtic captain Scott Brown has blasted Motherwell’s complaints about the two penalties awarded against them this week.
The Betfred Cup Final and last night’s 1-1 draw between the sides have overshadowed by accusations that Celtic players – Scott Sinclair and Callum McGregor – dived to win penalties.
The Sinclair incident lead to Moussa Dembele’s penalty putting Celtic 2-0 up in the Cup Final, whilst after McGregor won the penalty Sinclair stepped up to fire home an 88th minute equaliser to preserve Celtic’s unbeaten run at 66 games.
While talking to Celtic’s official Twitter account, the Scotland captain has claimed that Motherwell have been fortunate with incidents in both games.
Brown said: “They got a free-kick that they scored from which definitely wasn’t and should have had a straight red in the Cup Final.
“What goes around comes around. There’s been decisions against us and decisions against them.”

The teams meet again for the third and final time this week at Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon, then aren’t scheduled to play each other again until March 17th.
The game is the first of nine for Celtic in December, which includes the final Champions League game against Anderlecht and home matches against Aberdeen and Rangers.
Celtic’s point last night moved them four points clear of Aberdeen at the top of the Scottish Premiership with a game in hand, following Aberdeen’s defeat to Rangers last night.
