John Lundstram red card sparks Rangers apoplexy but furious Kenny Miller told Collum is bang on

The decision to send John Lundstram off for a tackle on Alistair Johnston in the title decider between Celtic and Rangers sparked utter fury from Kenny Miller – but none of his A-list colleagues agreed.

The Scouser – potentially playing in his final ever derby in Glasgow's east end – was shown a yellow card by referee Willie Collum before the video referee upgraded it to a straight red. It compounded a disastrous day for the midfielder who bundled home Celtic's second goal into his own net.

But it was the full-throttle tackle on Johnston which caused anger for Miler – working in the Sky Sports commentary booth – unleashed his anger over the call for Steven McLean to flag Collum to check the monitor. Miller fumed: "That's never a red card. Look at the still, the way the game has gone now...that is not a red card. There's no way, every kick can't be a red card. Alistair Johnston plants his foot, incredible."

But Miller found supporters to his thinking in short supply. Chris Sutton understood Miller's point but made the case for an instant dismissal. And Kris Boyd and Neil Lennon were certain Lundstram had to go.
