Rather different post-game attitudes were observed with Celtic's Neil Lennon taking on the Calemero role that all officials are out to deny his side obvious decisions in their favour. He may live to regret his comments on Radio Scotland where it sounded like he thought any explanation he would be given would have already been made up.

Jim Jefferies concentrated on the decisions that were given and was seen shaking hands with fans before the end of the game with a huge grin on his face. He insisted his side deserved to take all three points regardless of the controversial incidents. Jefferies said: "I don't think there is any doubt that it was a deserved win. We had a couple of chances to score before we got the goal. We played better than Celtic in the first half and at 2-0 I'm glad that we didn't do anything stupid to let them back into it. For the sending off, the referee indicated that it was two-footed tackle and if that's the case then it is an automatic red card. Ryan said he chested the ball down and Celtic fans claimed for a penalty and you can't blame them for that. But that might have been the only way they were going to score tonight."
