BBC Scotland reporter Tom English has caused quite the stir among Celtic supporters with his latest social media activity.

This comes after Tom Boyd criticised referee John Beating during Saturday’s win over Dunfermline live on Celtic TV.

English responded by tweeting his bemusement at ‘people on here crying conspiracy’.

The tweet has angered several Celtic fans if this reaction on social media is anything to go by.

It’s certainly a poorly-worded tweet from English, who was clearly trying to rattle up a few of the Celtic supporters.

His suggestion that fans need to ‘give it a rest’ does not help his cause any further, with it implying that Hoops fans are not allowed to voice their opinions on a refereeing decision.

Despite the frustration and anger aimed towards Beaton on Saturday and English here, however, the main thing to take is that Celtic progressed regardless of any refereeing decisions, and are one step closer to retaining their Scottish League Cup crown.
