The final between Celtic and Hearts ended 3-3, and the Bhoys prevailed in a penalty shootout to win the Scottish Cup from the 2019/20 season.
However, with the score at 0-0, Hearts man Steven Naismith probably could have been sent off as the footage appears to show him stamp on Scott Brown after the ball has gone.
This has drawn the attention of these Celtic fans who feel that the former Everton man should have been sent off.
What did these Celtic fans think of this incident?
Straight red. Was fuming at none of officials seeing this. Hopefully retrospective action but you can see the pattern of Refs missing game changing moments that disadvantage Celtic

This is a disgrace. Should be looking at suspension for at least a few months. https://t.co/yU6ez68ckR

Should Naismith have been sent off?
Yes, it was a clear stamp
No, it was an accident
Other Bhoys fans continued to express their anger at this incident.
Should have been sent off. Would have been shown 20 times and half time if had been the other way round.

Embarrassing captain. That is a red card. Simple as that.

Brown does have a reputation for doing things like that to other players, but that does not mean that Naismith should be exempt from criticism.
The ball has gone, and he could put his foot anywhere, and he chooses to plant it straight into Brown’s leg.
So we are not surprised that these Celtic fans are fuming, and hopefully, Naismith is retrospectively punished for this stamp.
