Former Scottish Premiership midfielder Michael Stewart has claimed on Twitter that Motherwell will be "absolutely raging" after Celtic were given another penalty against Stephen Robinson's side.

Former Hearts and Hibernian midfielder Stewart was astonished on Twitter that Mullins had decided to hand Brendan Rodgers' side a penalty kick, claiming Mullins' point to the spot was a "horrific decision".

This comes after Celtic were awarded another controversial penalty against The Well on Sunday afternoon, as Scott Sinclair seemed to go down softly under the challenge of Cedric Kipre.
