Celtic striker Albian Ajeti has been cleared of any wrongdoing after the Parkhead club appealed a retrospective wrongdoing for diving – and Rangers fans have raised a suspicious eyebrow.

The decision comes after Ajeti’s dive in Celtic’s 4-0 win over Kilmarnock – which led to a penalty to make it 2-0 – was found “not proven” by the SFA’s retrospective disciplinary panel.

This came after the hearing regarding Rangers striker Kemar Roofe and a retrospective two-match ban for a tackle on St. Johnstone star Murray Davidson was moved forward a day.

Rangers fans won’t find out if Roofe will be available to play against Kilmarnock and Dundee United until tomorrow with plenty raising an eyebrow over the timing of this decision.

Not to mention the fact Ajeti clearly dived to win the penalty at Rugby Park, with Rangers fans also questioning the SFA’s weak response to Celtic’s rebuttal.

Retrospective action has been the talk of Scottish football as the draining conversation around the SFA and their objectively inconsistent governance of the disciplinary process continues.

Rangers fans have once again railed against the powers that be as Celtic evade retrospective punishment once again:


Rangers fans will now await the outcome of the Kemar Roofe trial with no-one holding their breath that the SFA will look favourably on the Gers.

There’s also been plenty other controversy around the challenge with the Gers withdrawing co-operation with Clyde One at the weekend over comments made on Superscoreboard.
