Celtic fans tore into Neil McCann yesterday after the former Rangers winger claimed Odsonne Edouard's panenka penalty was DISRESPECTFUL to Hearts goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

The Frenchman dinked his spot-kick beautifully down the middle as Gordon flung himself to his right to double the Hoops' lead at Hampden. The penalty irked Gordon so much that he was booked for launching the ball angrily in the direction of his former teammate.

McCann didn't like Edouard's decision either, branding it disrespectful to his old pal. He also described Edouard as being 'selfish' for his efforts.

Ex-Gers ace McCann said on BBC Scotland's broadcast of the Scottish Cup final: "I can understand Craig Gordon's reaction. I think that's pretty disrespectful. It's come off for him and it looks brilliant. It's just selfish, I didn't like it. It's not because Celtic have gone two-nil up - that's his teammate and that's why Craig has reacted like that. That was a little bit cheeky."

Hoops supporters could not allow McCann's comments to go without criticism and plenty took to social media to lambast the pundit for his take. "What a load of self absorbed tripe," one said. "There is no right or wrong way to score a penalty. Actually quite ridiculous how this idea is creeping into football. Get a f***ing grip of yourself McCann."

Another added: "Get well soon Neil McCann," while one commented: "Neil McCann didn't like it, quelle surprise! Rescind it immediately and award Hearts the win."

One wrote on social media: "I’ll have a pint of Neil McCann’s tears please," while a fifth said: "Aw, did Neil McCann not like it when Celtic scored at hampden? That’s a shame, he’s usually a huge fan".
