You can argue all you want that somebody “isn’t that type of player”, it doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to get sent off for a shocking challenge.
Celtic already faced a tough trip to the Tony Macaroni Arena to face Livi today, now they have to try and grind out a win with only ten men.
It’s not really clear what Christie thought would happen here, but his cowardly challenge saw him receive a straight red:

It speaks volumes that even the Celtic minded Twitter accounts seem to agree with the outcome. Willie Collum still doesn’t help the situation by making a huge scene of getting the card out and pushing players around.
At least he got a decision right for once..
