“I realise that I made a mistake in getting sent off,” he said. “It’s something that happened in the heat of the moment but I shouldn’t have acted in this way,” he told Celtic’s official website.
“I still think it was a harsh decision. However, I recognise that I made a mistake and put myself and my team-mates in a difficult position. I need to live with that and there is no-one more disappointed than me about losing the match.
“There wasn’t a huge amount of contact at all, to be honest, but I have to accept responsibility for my actions – and I do.”
