Charlie Mulgrew was left ruing a glaring miss after the 10 men of Celtic lost 1-0 to Barcelona at Parkhead.
After Scott Brown had been sent off for a needless kick at Neymar in the 59th minute, Mulgrew had the chance to head Celtic in front against the run of play but nodded narrowly wide with Victor Valdes out of position.
“It was an unbelievable chance,” Mulgrew said. “I should have scored.”
Mulgrew claimed the referee had been intimidated into sending Brown off by the Barcelona players.
The referee had first taken the yellow card out of his pocket in response to the initial foul on Neymar, but appeared to have a clear view of the kick that followed and changed his mind amid protests from the visitors.
“It’s hard to go down to 10 men so early in the second half,” Mulgrew said. “It was always going to be an uphill battle. I thought we defended really well and had a few chances.”
