Kilmarnock midfielder Rory McKenzie has given his opinion on the pitch invasion at Rugby Park on Sunday.
Celtic fans invaded the pitch following Scott Brown’s late winning goal.
The Hoops won 1-0 to go eight points clear at the top of the league, and fans were naturally enthused. McKenzie believes that there was no malice behind the celebrations.
He did concede though, that it ‘wasn’t nice’ to have the fans celebrating on the pitch.
“Obviously conceding a goal that late wasn’t nice and then to have Celtic fans on in your face wasn’t nice as well” he told The Scottish Sun.
“The few that come in, there was no malice in it at all, most of them that I saw were young kids. To be fair they had their phones out. I think they were just trying to get pictures, there was no badness.”
McKenzie and his Killie team-mates are next in action on Wednesday night against Kilmarnock in the Scottish Cup.
Steve Clarke’s side have had a good season so far. But if they lose at Ibrox Park then their season will be all but over with three months still to go.
It will be interesting to see how Killie recovers from losing the heartbreaking last minute goal to Celtic. It could make or break their season going forward.
