It’s understandable for the losing manager in any Cup Final to be disappointed. And Motherwell’s Stephen Robinson is no different. His side were beaten by a better side at Hampden on Sunday, and to comfort the Northern Irishman, the referee awarded Celtic a penalty he thought was highly contentious.
Still in an state of confusion and maybe anger, Robinson was adamant after the game there should have been no penalty, in fact claimed Scott Sinclair went down easily. Unlike his assistant’s wife, Jayne Lasley, who took to Twitter to tell the world ‘Celtic are cheats.’ (no guessing who wears the trousers in that house)
His view has of the incident has since changed, hiding behind the ‘wee wouldn’t win anyway’, Robinson has decided NOT to appeal the decision. Maybe he’s had enough of making an arse of himself, or maybe not….
This morning the Motherwell manager has claimed winning against Celtic tonight at Fir Park and ending the InVIncibles run of 65 domestic matches unbeaten would be BETTER than winning the BetFred Cup on Sunday!
There ye go, how’s that for motivation….
I’d advise any Celtic supporter heading to Fir Park tonight not to drink any water at the ground, as there’s clearly something in it that make you delirious. It’s not a new thing either, last season Mark McGhee regularly behaved like a madman while in charge of the Steelmen. Claiming not to know people he’d written about in the match programme for example…
So Bhoys & Ghirls, don’t take any chances…
Unfortunately for Robinson, he’s taking things just little
