THIS is the moment that Celtic TV reacted to Nick Walsh and his VARs decision not to award their side a penalty against Hearts on Saturday.

Ange Postecoglou and various pundits were left dismayed at the failure to point to the spot for a Hoops penalty after Michael Smith appeared to handle the ball right on half-time. 

It came moments after VAR intervened in the game to award the hosts a spot kick after Cammy Devlin was fouled inside the area by Cameron carter-Vickers.

The handball appeals were strong from the Celtic players, but Walsh waved play on. 

Even after a VAR review, the game was told to continue. 

Now, footage has emerged from Celtic TV's coverage of the game in which Gerry McCulloch and Tom Boyd reacted to the controversial incident.

Boyd in particular was left astounded by the final decision. 

McCulloch said: "Appeals for a handball. Could this be some late drama. This is exactly why the VAR referee is here. 

"Goodness me. Let's watch this again. Forrest, up. Oh, that's a penalty."

Boyd: "His hand's out, isn't it?"

McCulloch: "He actually moves his arm out. Watch this, the arm goes out, movement on to the ball. For me, that is a Celtic penalty."

Boyd: "Yeah, I would agree with that."

Following the VAR call, Boyd reacted: "What? That's absolute nonsense, that's scandalous from Mr McLean. The problem with VAR, it's not VAR's fault it's the people who are interpreting it. Three decisions, one he's got right, two he's get wrong.

"The fear from Celtic supporters, among others, have certainly come to fruition, even the manager is shaking his head, who doesn't get too animated by some decisions by referees, but you seen him on that on occasion."
