Aberdeen Captain Accuses Celtic Of Lacking Class In Post-Match Celebrations

Aberdeen Captain Accuses Celtic Of Lacking Class In Post-Match Celebrations

Celtic won the League Cup with a 1-0 victory over Aberdeen on Sunday. Ryan Christie's goal shortly before half-time was enough to claim to cup for Brendan Rodger's side.

The nature of Celtic's celebrations immediately following the game annoyed both Aberdeen manager, Derek McInnes, and captain, Graeme Shinnie.

McInnes accused Celtic captain on the day, Mikael Lustig, of laughing in the face of 19-year-old Lewis Ferguson at the final whistle. A row also broke out between Shinnie and Scott Brown.

"There are ways to go about things as a captain. You can have a bit of class about you - they don’t and it frustrated me. But we have to deal with it," Shinnie told the Scottish Sun.

They were 1-0 up and had the ascendancy and it gave them the chance to do it. I’m man enough to take it.

Players sometimes shake hands after but there’s none of that now. It’s happened more than once. I’m used to it now.

It is what it is. I’m big enough and man enough to deal with it. Celtic have won the cup so congratulations.

He will do what he does. It doesn’t bother me. But when it’s people like young Ferguson they are going for - they are older professionals and they should know better.

We can deal with it but it just frustrated me some of their players were celebrating in front of a 19-year-old kid who’s just trying to do well.

You can have a wee bit more class than that. I don’t know why they went for Lewis.

There were obviously battles going on in the game but you’d have to ask them that.
