Kilmarnock vs Celtic VAR watch as rampant champions destroy hosts to win trophy

Celtic barely broke sweat as they swept Kilmarnock aside to be officially crowned champions at Rugby Park this evening.

The only nervy moments for Brendan Rodgers' side did not involve having to defend at all, really, against Derek McInnes' charges. Rather it was after their first and second goals - scored by Adam Idah and Daizen Maeda respectively - that may have caused the only bouts of concern throughout the 90 plus minutes.

That was when referee Don Robertson was asked to hold off from whistling for continuation of the game as VAR took a look at issues in the build-up that required a double check.

Football Scotland has taken a look at the monitor decisions from the evening where Celts cruised to silverware to stun their opponents who had given them troubles earlier in the campaign...

Idah goal

The Irishman took his goal well but it was his hold-up play which caught the eye as he helped set up his own strike. As he controlled the ball around about the halfway line, the big man's arms went up to gain balance and struck an opponent in the face. VAR had a look but it was adjudged to have been a legal challenge and the goal stood.

Daizen makes it two

The Japanese attacker looked desperately tight in terms of an offside call as he sprinted to win the ball and help towards his own goal. Eventually the ball would find James Forrest and he'd slip it across the six-yard line to be tapped home by Maeda. The wide man's toe was just onside and the goal was given.

McGregor handball?

Celtic's captain had a very quick check against him from a Killie set-piece when he crouched to win a header but it cannoned off his own arm. It wasn't given as a penalty for the home side as he'd headed it onto his own arm and, by the letter of the law, the game continued.

Armstrong cuts the deficit, then doesn't

Danny Armstrong has been exceptional for Killie and thought he'd taken his goals tally to double figures with a stunning curled effort beyond Joe Hart. In the build-up, though, Marley Watkins had a shot saved by the goalkeeper and, as he ran to go one-on-one, he was ruled off as he'd just ran ahead of CCV.
