Celtic have said they are ‘astonished’ as Tom Boyd, club ambassador, is being investigated by the SFA compliance officer, for his comments about John Beaton.
The comments that sparked the investigation, he said on CelticTV”What does John Beaton not know about the new rules?
“If he doesn’t know that’s a penalty he shouldn’t be in the middle of a park refereeing a football game.
“He’ll probably be welcome down his pub tonight again.”
The club insist they will fight this all the way, a statement said: “We have had absolutely no contact from the SFA in relation to this matter and, given the context and circumstances in which the comments were made, would be astonished if the matter were to be progressed,” a statement said.
“If it is, then we will respond robustly.”
