ST JOHNSTONE boss Tommy Wright was upset his side were denied what he thought was a blatant penalty-kick in the 1-0 defeat from Celtic at Parkhead last night.
Shortly after the Hoops had taken a 72nd-minute lead through Dedryck Boyata, Scott Brown had a challenge on Steven Anderson in the box that was ignored by referee Andrew Dallas.
Wright thought it was a push from the Hoops skipper and was left seething when the appeal was ignored.
“I don’t see how he didn’t get that. It is a push on the back. He (Dallas) has a clear view. Anywhere else on the park and that’s a free-kick.
“As the game went on Celtic kept probing away and it got more difficult for us to get forward and create opportunities as fatigue set in.
