Ross County co-manager Stuart Kettlewell is questioning referee Nick Walsh after his side fell to Celtic in Dingwall.

Despite a hard shift against the Glasgow side, County eventually lost 4-1. A goal from Ryan Christie had Celtic on their way before Ross Stewart stunned them with a Staggies equaliser.

Kettlewell’s men were aggressive in their approach but couldn’t match Celtic, with another Christie goal, Tom Rogic and Mikey Johnston doing the damage in Dingwall.

It leaves County eighth in the league. Kettlewell has been left reeling from refereeing decisions, including one dubious call that ruled out another goal for Stewart after Brian Graham was deemed to be in a offside position.

“It’s a tough enough task as it is for teams like us,” Kettlewell explained. “To be getting decisions like that wrong, to me, is a farce. I’ve never seen an occasion where an offside is given by the referee where the linesman doesn’t have his flag up.

“It’s quite clearly onside. We were wrongly disputing the Celtic penalty so again this is where we’re honest enough to go back to the officials and apologise. It is a penalty and we accept that but I can’t accept the last one.

“We don’t know what goal difference will come down to. It could come down to fine margins like that, we just don’t know. I asked a few questions in the first half and asked about the last one.

“The problem is we can be told any story they want. I’m not suggesting they’re telling lies but we’re told that there’s a conversation had between fourth official, linesman and the referee.

“I don’t know, you guys be the judge. Ross puts in it the net and his whistle goes. A few seconds later the flag goes up. That’s the wrong way round. From what I’ve seen that is the wrong call.

“When are we going to get to the bottom of this? Probably never.”
