Video: Celtic defender head butted in Copa America clash

Celtic’s Alistair Johnston appeared to be headbutted in Canada’s Copa America clash with Peru. The defender appeared to have a word with the winger before being headed by Peru’s Marcos López.

The decision was reviewed by VAR but no red card for López despite what appeared to be a clear and obvious error from the officials to miss the confrontation with Johnston.

Johnston was able to continue and help Jesse Marsch’s Canada to a 1-0 victory in the game.

Johnston joined Celtic in the January of 2023 after impressing at the World Cup in Qatar. Celtic moved for the Montreal CF defender and he’s enjoyed his time at Celtic, winning five trophies out of a possible six.
