Hibernian: Paul McGinn receives disciplinary charge for criticizing referee

Hibernian defender Paul McGinn received a disciplinary charge from the SFA for criticizing referee John Beaton during the League Cup final on Sunday. Hibernian lost to Celtic thanks to a Kyogo Furuhashi brace after they had taken the lead through captain Paul Hanlon. McGinn claimed that the players were waiting for substitution before Tom Rogic took a quick free-kick. McGinn’s hearing is set for January 13.

“It’s not a foul and then the fourth official is holding the board,” Hibernian defender Paul McGinn said. “I think Jamie Murphy could stand over the ball, as you do, but he steps away from it, to assume ‘sub’. No control over the situation, (Beaton) just lets it happen, and the goal goes in. I don’t know if you see me running to him straight away and getting myself booked. But it’s just inept.”

“Even 90 seconds later, Celtic are going to make a sub and (Anthony) Ralston takes a quick throw-in, and he whistles it back for the sub to happen,” he added. “I ran to him and just said ‘What’s going on? There is no way we would have got that the other way. No way.’ That’s why I got booked.”
