Celtic conceded a sickening penalty to worst dive you are likely to see

This is terrible.

Celtic maintained their unbeaten record in this season’s Scottish Premier League as they drew 2-2 away to Ross County.

The Glaswegian side are pretty much on auto-pilot mode as they have already secured yet another SPL title.

The remaining games left for Brendan Rodger’s side are merely a formality.

Nevertheless, there was still a lot of drama in their game on Sunday afternoon against Ross County, which ended 2-2.

Scott Brown was shown a straight red at the end of the match for a lunge on Liam Boyce. This incident seemed to stem from the controversy which took place immediately beforehand.

The away side looked to ease out the game as they were 2-1 up, after Patrick Roberts put them a goal to the good.

However, after 87 minutes, substitute Alex Schalk went down under an innocuous challenge from Erik Sviatchenko.

A penalty was awarded and Boyce dispatched the spot kick to tie up the scoreline.

On closer inspection, it was a blatant dive from Schalk and the referee completely fell for it.
