Alex Schalk’s dive allowed Ross County to grab a late equaliser from the penalty spot against Celtic.
The Staggies attacker was a late substitute in the game at Dingwall as his side chased a leveller after falling behind to Patrick Roberts’ second half goal.
And that’s what they got – thanks to Liam Boyce’s penalty.
Schalk was the man who won the penalty for County, with the Dutchman falling without taking a touch from Erik Sviatchenko in the penalty box:

Boyce grabbed the ball after referee Don Robertson pointed to the spot – and he sent Craig Gordon the wrong way to give County a point.
Celtic have of course already wrapped up the league title nice and early but fans were quite rightly feeling aggrieved to have not claimed all three points away at Ross County thanks to the terrible dive that conned the referee.
I have just seen the biggest dive and most awful decision ever in football in all the years I have been watching football #SPFL #Celtic

That player should be hounded for that dive. I’d never want to see any Celtic player do that don’t care what the situation is.

Retrospective ban for Alex Shalk dive won’t be of any benefit to #Celtic – already cost us two points

That’s hands down the worst decision and dive I’ve seen in my life. An absolute disgrace.

Regardless who you support the dive from the Ross County player against Celtic is an absolute disgrace. Embarrassment for the player and ref

Honestly if you get chance, watch the dive that lead to the Ross County penalty in the Celtic match. Awful, awful refereeing.
