One of the worst decisions - Rodgers

Manager Brendan Rodgers admitted the late penalty decision costing Celtic a couple of points at Ross County was one of the worst he'd ever witnessed.

Home substitute Alex Schalk clearly appeared to throw himself to the ground inside the area despite no apparent contact from Hoops defender Erik Sviatchenko.

"It's a very disappointing end to a game we dominated throughout," Rodgers told BBC Scotland. "We had good control and then the points are taken from us by a horrendous decision. I've seen some bad decisions up here but that's one of the worst.

"Referees have a tough job but I don't know what he was seeing. The linesman and the fourth official need to help him or else why are they there?," he asked. "There's no way Sviatchenko makes any attempt to get the ball. I'm sure the boy [Schalk] will get punished for it."
