John Collins unhappy with Celtic's penalty kick debacle, comments on Guidetti's reaction

Celtic U-20s

Celtic assistant manager John Collins was far from impressed as Bhoys players argued over who should take a penalty against Dundee United.

Celtic assistant manager John Collins spoke to the media earlier today, and with quotes reported by the official Celtic Twitter account, he tackled the subject of Celtic's penalty row on Sunday.

The Bhoys are in celebratory mode after winning the Scottish League Cup on Sunday afternoon, defeating Dundee United 2-0 at Hampden Park.

Goals from Kris Commons and James Forrest handed Celtic the win, but one incident late in the game soured the joy for Bhoys fans.

Celtic won a penalty late on, and whilst striker John Guidetti wanted to take the spot kick, Forrest was adamant that he was taking the penalty, sparking something of a row on the pitch - and in predictably ironic fashion, Forrest saw his spot kick saved.

Guidetti was clearly unhappy at the final whistle, and was even trudging down the tunnel whilst his team mates celebrated before Swedish international team mate Mikael Lustig hauled him back onto the pitch.

It was an unnecessary scene and one which threatened to spoil the party for Celtic, and assistant boss Collins said that it's not only something that he doesn't like to see, but assured the press that such a situation won't happen again.

Additionally, Collins said that striker Guidetti would be able to put the incident behind him, with some Celtic fans concerned about his attitude after the game.

Here are quotes from Collins' press conference, as reported by the official Celtic Twitter account...
