Matt O'Riley gets honest on Celtic penalty as he drops sweary gaffe live on TV

Matt O'Riley dropped a sweary clanger live on TV as he comically described his missed Celtic penalty in today's Old Firm derby.

The Hoops got the 2-1 win they were after at home to Rangers this lunchtime which puts them on the verge of being crowned champions, now just needing one point from their final two games. It was nervy at the end though as the Light Blues managed to build some pressure despite having been reduced to ten men late in the first half with John Lundstram's red card.

All that uncertainly could have been avoided with plenty of Celts missed chances and in particular when O'Riley had an opportunity from the spot. The midfielder was involved in the award after being clipped by Mohamed Diomande and going down, prompting Willie Collum to point to the spot.

The referee was called over to review his decision on the VAR monitor but stuck to his gut and gave the spot kick. After a long delay for the deliberation, the Denmark international stepped up and saw a poor effort saves by Jack Butland. And he was ready to admit it wasn't his best effort post-match.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: "Very important (result). Two games left, six points clear. Not much else to say. I think we made it a bit hard for ourselves again. I probably helped with that with a pretty s*** penalty."

Asked what he was thinking, he added: "Too much to be honest. I practised it yesterday and I probably just got in two minds when I was over it. So more to learn from again, I won't do that again."

O'Riley was then quizzed over whether the delay had an impact on him and explained: "I don't know. I kind of had a plan, I was waiting for him to move and he stayed a long time. Yeah, I probably just needed to have slightly bigger balls than I did."
