Celtic fans on Twitter have been giving their reaction to the news that Motherwell’s Cedric Kipre has had his red card for an incident with the Hoops’ Scott Brown in the recent match at Fir Park overturned.

The Scottish FA made the decision to downgrade the card to a yellow in an announcement made on Thursday via the SFA’s official Twitter page.

The Hoops fans seem to be split between those who think the SFA were wrong to overturn the decision, and those critical of referee Craig Thomson and the standard of refereeing the Scottish game in general.

Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter to the Kipre verdict:

Kipre, who has been sent-off against the Hoops twice this season, is now free to play in Motherwell’s next game, which is against Rangers next weekend.

The Hoops failed to take advantage of the sending-off during the game, as they were held to a goalless draw by the Steelmen, yet still increased their lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership table to 10 points with a game in hand.

The Hoops are unlikely to face Motherwell in the league again this season as they are struggling to make the top six, but the teams could meet in the Scottish Cup Final at Hampden in May.
