Making an absolute *** of himself on Celtic TV yesterday.

Never a penalty in a million years. Shows just how much we had them rattled yesterday too.

I’m surprised at Boyd, thought he was better than that. Must be amazing winning the league, year after year with all the referees against you. Utter moron.

I've met Tom boyd on a few occasions and always came across as a fair, level headed guy.

I suppose if you want to keep your job , you say what fans want to hear.

East End Park is a symbol of all that is DAFC.

I think that if anyone feels that strongly and feels the system is not right then they should think about how to change it. Perhaps becoming a referee himsrlf he would be in a position to influence change. At the end of the day, referees like everyone else are human and will make mistakes. Thats life. Im sure there will be two perspectives whether you are a Dunfermline or Celtic supporter. Again thats a human thing to do. At the end if the day its just a game and nobody has died from a perceived wrong decision.

The Scottish FA compliance officer is to investigate comments made by former Celtic captain Tom Boyd about John Beaton during Saturday's League Cup win against match against Dunfermline.

Commentating for CelticTV, the club ambassador criticised the referee for not awarding the hosts a penalty.

"If he doesn't know that's a penalty he should not be in the middle of the park refereeing a football game," Boyd said.

"He'll probably be welcomed down his pub tonight again."

Holders Celtic beat Dunfermline 2-1 in extra-time and during half-time of the additional 30-minute period, Boyd commented further on Beaton's decision not to give the hosts a spot-kick for handball.

"Old law, new law, no matter what kind of law, that is a penalty," he said. "How John Beaton hasn't given that... we've seen it before from referees like this. John Beaton not giving us penalty, absolutely stunning decision… standing alone there, I wonder what his thoughts are.

"I'm mystified… I'm not mystified. John Beaton as though it was a pre-meditated decision not to give that penalty because it was so late in the game, I'm not sure.

"It's come off his arm. Regardless of players down or whatever, he's not given a drop ball. So he's seen it hit the hand of the Dunfermline player and it should be a penalty. Outrageous decision from John Beaton.

"We've not played well, but once again a decision from a referee may cost us in this game, hopefully we'll go on and beat not the 10 men, not the 11 men of Dunfermline, but the 12 men."

The Compliance Officer is to investigate the nature of the comments.

Boyd played for Celtic between 1992 and 2003, winning eight trophies, and was capped 72 times by Scotland.

What about the kick in the head in the first half did Mr. Boyd not see that as a penalty?

What a brainless rant that was. How does he think that will help his club? Refs are only human and to insinuate that he was favouring the Pars on Celtic's own turf is completely laughable.

Will this make Beaton more likely to give Celtic a 50-50 decision next time he refs one of their games? I doubt it.



Not your average Sunday League player.

I assume the highlights don't show this "blatant hand ball" penalty claim as I can't remember seeing it.

I did see a possible two for us, Nisbet being caught with a high boot and a possible shove as our player was running into far post for a header.

Nisbet was a serious shout, not sure if there was much in the shove on our player going for header but have seen them given.

I don't think the comments about Beaton being 'welcomed down his pub tonight again' will go down well with the SFA. Wasn't this a reference to a previous (unsubstantiated?) allegation that the referee frequented a Rangers' pub?

I had both pars tv and celtic tv on as pars tv was jumping in and out of service .

I watched on the celtic tv and heard all his comments and thought straight away he would be in trouble for his comments .

I did think at the time it was a penalty, So I believe he got the call right but not his stupid comments .

Tom Boyd greeting about Dunfermline having some kind 'unfair advantage' over Celtic, because the referee has some unproven bias towards Rangers, pretty much sums up everything that's wrong with football in Scotland.

The game's a bogey,

Celtic said in a statement: "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. If it is, then we will respond robustly."

Scottish Football Association article 29.2
'A club or recognised football body which publishes, distributes, issues, sells or authorises a third party to publish, distribute, issue or sell a match programme or any other publication or audio/visual material of any description in any media now existing or hereinafter invented, including but not limited to the Internet, social networking or micro-blogging sites, shall ensure that any such publications or audio/visual material does not contain any criticism of any match official calculated to indicate bias or incompetence on the part of such match official or to impinge upon his character.'

Celtic paranoia is something else. I saw some of their fans claiming one of our players was joining in a particular chant whilst warming up! They're unreal.

If/When sevco win the league it’s genuinely going to end some of the Celtic support. They are weak , well they both are in fairness . That’s why they end up supporting the old firm. No got enough about them .

John Beaton made mistakes on Saturday one of those were denying us a stonewall penalty late on but referees do show bias in favour of Celtic and Rangers that is a fact that Mr Boyd ignores

The acid test for the OF is proving themselves in Europe and lately Celtic have only proved how inept they are. So their fans are feeling a wee bit delicate. Their recent managers have boosted their egos in the false understanding that winning trebles in Scotland with a team that cost 10 times more than the average teams in the SPL is some kind of an achievement. And when a bargain basement 11 like the Pars comes along and shows up their inadequacies that's a real blow to their delusions of grandeur.

I have to say that I always had a slight leaning towards Celtic and none towards the Rangers 1 or 2. Having met Tommy Burns and Billy McNeil, both of them came across as decent people. As I don't go to away games now I wasn't at the game last Saturday. However shouting about their past coaches and several of their religious leaders liking of small boys whilst true is not what we as a non sectarian club should do. There have been in incidents involving coaches in England we should let the law deal with these issues. From photographic evidence we should been awarded a penalty and more free kicks. Tom Boyd is probably paid by Celtic FC therefore he should watch what he is saying especially comments about sectarian issues.

Boyd plays up to the noisy minority in attempt to be popular.. He is part of the problem with Scottish football on both sides of the old firm divide. Celtic will vigorously defend him, that tells you a story in itself, they will defend anything

What I can never get over is the sheer entitlement of Celtic fans.

They have known nothing but success for three long years yet were booing,jeering and,in some cases,walking out after the 90 minutes.

Comments such as "premeditated decisions "beggar belief .

More references to the “Old Firm”

No longer applicable as Rangers died, how can the new team and Celtic be termed the “Old Firm” ?

Better to refer to them as the Bigger Glasgow clubs

Just for the record the club didnt die it was the company who went into liquidation not the club therefore the old firm still applies

This forum has a creepy obsession with Rangers/The Rangers/Sevco etc.

First their fans were apparently infiltrating our end last week, and now a thread about a Celtic TV presenter is getting turned into them too.

Rangers were incorporated in 1899, club and company became one and the same and under Scots law cannot be separated, one goes they both go

The myths around this are going to be accepted as fact if people aren't careful.

The club the players were registered to ceased to exist, the players had to be re-registered with the new club details. That's why lots of them were able to walk away.

Also, the 'old club' had a vote in allowing the 'new club' into the league.
