In the most classic case of comical bad losermanship (is that a word) Neil Lennon has accused Bobby Madden of a foul mistake in sending off Nir Bitton.

Now, Mr Lennon alleges that Morelos was at too tight an angle for it to be a goalscoring chance, when even Master Raging Tim himself that is Andy Walker agreed it was a blatant red card and Bitton rightly went for an early bath.

Indeed, it seems the only person in existence to think Bitton’s tug down of Morelos by the jersey and subsequence sending off was wrong was his manager.

In truth, of course it was as blatant a red as you’ll see. As Ibrox Noise’s Derek says, the only amazement was that Madden did indeed dish out justice and send him off rather than having Morelos hung drawn and quartered for simulation before a 77 man independent panel had him executed for treason.

That Bitton went off was just, correct, and was the rules being enforced.

That Lennon felt fit to whine about it was just a bad loser.

Sure, his side was the better one on the day, but no one remembers the losers.

Said Lennon last year:

“Fraser Forster was outstanding. He made some unbelievable saves, world class saves. I didn’t even celebrate it [the goal]. I was too wrapped up in how we were playing and how we were going to get a proper foothold in the game. We weren’t great today but we still won and that’s what cup football is all about.”

That’s right Neil, you won that day, no whining about how you shouldn’t have.

Pity you couldn’t be as magnanimous today…
